Asthma Related Hospitalizations, Age 0 18

Time Range: 2005-2010       Resolution: Zip Code

Asthma-related emergency department visits and hospitalizations for children 18 years of age and under is the rate per children 0-18 years of age in the zip code area for asthma-related hospital discharges for FY 2005-2010. Rates were calculated separately for emergency department visits and hospitalizations.
Rationale
Childhood asthma is not only a health outcome, but also an indicator of possible future health problems. Asthma rates are directly correlated with poor environmental conditions caused by pollution levels, housing stock quality, and poverty levels.
