This report describes the analysis of datasets and shapefiles to identify HSE support centre locations based on the location and population number in Leinster, Ireland. This analysis is useful for executives in the Health Service Executive. It provides them with planning details to optimise where their resources should be used across Leinster to provide better coverage to people with a disability. This report used various data analysis processes to complete the tasks that were set out. One of these processes was to use the KDD (Knowledge discovery and databases) in order to properly conduct the analysis on the health centre and disabilities datasets being used, such as data cleaning and data transformation. The KDD was followed as it is used substantially in data analytics to gain knowledge of data. The proposed system identifies new HSE support centres locations using the current location of HSE support centres and the population density in each small area of Leinster, Users will also be able to see a breakdown of disabilities such as: the types of disabilities(physical, hearing loss, blindness etc.) the locations of these disabilities shown using a graphical representation in the form of a Java Desktop application.
