    Article - En anglais

    There is a need for a standardized approach to international and regional comparisons of the prevalence and severity of asthma, and for the monitoring of asthma morbidity over time.

    In 1991, standardized written and video questionnaires were developed and administered in surveys of schoolchidren, aged 12-15 yrs, in five regions in four countries:

    • Adelaide,

    • Australia (n=1,428);

    • Sydney,

    • Australia (n=1519);

    • West Sussex,

    • England (n=2,097);

    • Bochum,

    • Germany (n=1928);

    • and Wellington,

    • New Zealand (n=1863).
