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