In this paper, the research data about quality of life in persons with cerebrovascular disease (CVD) is examined by Adaptive-Network-based Fuzzy Inference system (ANFIS) and these results are compared with statistical results obtained from the same data. The major parameters which are determined for quality of life levels are chosen as physical functions, social functions, and mental changing of the person. The aim of this study is to show that the expert based systems can be used to help the classic statistical computation systems on health and/or social problems. (c) 2006 Elsevier Ltd.
