The prevalence of asthma and wheezing in children

, : The prevalence of asthma and wheezing in children. British Journal of Diseases of the Chest 70(2): 73-77

The prevalence of asthma and wheezing in children in Birmingham, England, in 1974-5 was compared with previous studies in 1968-9 and 1956-7. The frequency of asthma increased over the 20-yr period, although the rate of increase slowed. Asthma was more common in boys than in girls. Children of the same racial group were more prone to asthma, and probably to other atopic diseases, if born in England than if born in poor tropical countries. Environmental factors in early life profoundly influence the prevalence of asthma in childhood.
