Methodology Notes

Persons are classified as having received a written asthma management plan if they responded “yes” to the question on receiving a management plan listed under Numerator.

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’).
