This study determined the relationship between the number of hospitalized Dengue Fever cases in selected barangays of Cagayan de Oro City and three climatological variables such as average rainfall, temperature, and humidity. The study used primary climatological data obtained from Xavier University Engineering Resource Center and secondary data obtained from the Records Section of the following hospitals: Northern Mindanao Medical Center, Sabal Doctors' Hospital, Capitol University Medical City, Maria Reyna-Xavier University Hospital, Inc., Polymedic General Hospital, Polymedic Medical Plaza, Madonna and Child Hospital, and Justiniano R. Borja Memorial General Hospital. The weekly averages of rainfall, temperature, and humidity as well as the number of weekly admissions of Dengue Fever cases from June 2011 to December 2011 were tallied. The relationship between the Dengue Fever cases and the climatological variables were then determined through Multivariate Linear Regression and Correlation. Results revealed that there was a direct relationship between the average weekly rainfall and the number of Dengue Fever cases per week, and an inverse relationship between the average weekly temperature, and humidity.
