Description of the data source, numerator, denominator, survey questions, and other relevant details about the national estimate.
From the 2008 National Health Interview Survey:
For persons under age 18 years:
What conditions or health problems cause [PERSON] limitations?
For persons aged 18 years and over:
What condition or health problem causes you to to have difficulty with these activities?
[NUMERATOR AND DENOMINATOR:]
Has a doctor or other health professional EVER told you that [PERSON] had asthma?
Does [PERSON] still have asthma?
Have you EVER been told by a doctor or other health professional that you had asthma?
Do you still have asthma?
Persons are classified as having an activity limitation if they responded that lung/breathing problems caused limitations.
To maintain consistency with the Council of State and Territorial Epidemiologists (CSTE), the case definition for asthma is based on ‘current’ asthma (yes to ‘ever asthma’ and yes to ‘still asthma’).
