Asthma Prevalence

This dataset contains the estimated percentage of Californians with asthma (asthma prevalence). Two types of asthma prevalence are included: 1) lifetime asthma prevalence describes the percentage of people who have ever been diagnosed with asthma by a health care provider, 2) current asthma prevalence describes the percentage of people who have ever been diagnosed with asthma by a health care provider AND report they still have asthma and/or had an asthma episode or attack within the past 12 months. The tables “Lifetime Asthma Prevalence by County” and “Current Asthma Prevalence by County” are derived from the California Health Interview Survey (CHIS) and include data stratified by county and age group (all ages, 0-17, 18+, 0-4, 5-17, 18-64, 65+) reported for 2-year periods. The table “Asthma Prevalence, Adults (18 and older)” is derived from the California Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS) and includes statewide data on adults reported by year.
