Alliance and Allstate Insurance Company’s data science team to help develop the predictive model. Data from the open data portal was used to develop the model. While other data were considered, almost all of the useful data was publicly available.
risk level Location of restaurant Nearby garbage and sanitation complaints Type of facility Nearby burglaries Whether the establishment has a tobacco or has an incidental alcohol consumption license. Length of time since last inspection. Length of time the restaurant has been inspecting. The model predicts the likelihood of a food establishment having a critical violation, a violation most likely to lead to food borne illnesses. Over a dozen data sources were used to help define the model. Ultimately, ten different variables proved to be useful predictors of critical violations. Significant Predictors:
70% The research revealed an opportunity to find deliver results faster. Within the first half of work, 69% of critical violations would have been found by inspectors using a data-driven approach. During the same period, only 55% of violations were found using the status quo method. Critical violations
rate of finding violations was accelerated by an average of 7.4 days in the 60 day pilot. That means more violations would be found sooner by CDPH’s inspectors. 7 days IMPROVEMENT The food inspection model is able to deliver results faster.
