Medical and technological development has achieved continuous successes during the last period. However, the statistics received from the World Health Organization (WHO) show the suffering that millions of people are subjected to daily as a result of their exposure to transitional diseases.  The most prevalent transitional disease in the Iraqi provinces and for all age groups for both genders is water pox disease, followed by cutaneous leishmaniosis and then mumps. The most affected governorate with transitional diseases is Baghdad Governorate (Rusafa Sector), followed by Dhi Qar Governorate and Baghdad (Al Karkh Sector). The most age-groups affected with transition diseases are the categories (5-9) years for males, followed by (5-9) years for females. The highest total contribution to the first axis was for cutaneous leishmaniasis, followed by mumps, then Basil dysentery, as for the absolute contribution in the first axis, it was Dhi Qar Governorate, followed by Baghdad. There are more than 14,000,000 people who die each year because of these diseases, and most infections are concentrated in developing countries, including Iraq. Hence, this research is vital to examine the extent of transitional diseases in Iraq for different age groups, both male and female gender. The use of the multivariate method, which is the correspondence analyses, it was found through the research that Baghdad (Rusafa Sector) has a high incidence of transitional diseases and the largest age group at risk of transitional diseases is (5-9) years form male gender.
