  1. Trends in the prevalence of asthma hospitalization in the 5- to 14-year-old Michigan Medicaid population, 1980 to 1986.

    Article - En anglais

    Background

    Despite advances in therapy, morbidity and mortality rates as a result of pediatric asthma appear to have increased during the past decade.

    Epidemiologic evidence suggests that these increases disproportionately affected black children and the urban poor.

    Methods

    With use of data from the Medicaid Management Information System, we estimated the prevalence of asthma hospitalization in the 5- to 14-year-old Michigan Medicaid population for the period 1980 to 1986.

    Results

    Large increases were seen between 1980 and 1984, with leveling off or a slight decline thereafter.
