Health disparities, race and asthma

American Journal of Public Health, Nandita Bhan, Ichiro Kawachi, Maria M. Glymour and S. V. Subramanian

This study looked at the prevalence of asthma across different racial groups in the US, and how those trends have changed over time. It confirms that African Americans are more likely to have asthma than white people in the US, while Hispanics have lower asthma rates than whites. It also found that while low economic status is associated with higher rates of asthma, racial differences persist even after accounting for income and education.
