In a case-control study carried out in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, between 1988 and 1990, indoor environmental factors were studied in relation to the incidence of asthma among 3- and 4-year-old children.
Cases (n=457), whose parents were recruited at a hospital emergency room, were children who had a first-time diagnosis of asthma (International Classification of Diseases, Ninth Revision, code 493) made by a pediatrician.
Controls (n=457) were chosen from family allowance files and were matched with case children on age and census tract.
A telephone interview was administered to the children's parents.
A 20% feasibility subsample was chosen to wear a nitrogen dioxide monitoring badge during a 24-hour period.
