Prevalence of asthma by country in Europe 2015 This statistic displays the prevalence of asthma in selected European countries in 2015. The United Kingdom (UK) had the highest number of individuals with asthma in Europe, with a prevalence of 4.67 million individuals. The number of individuals with asthma in Spain was noticeably less at 1.58 million. The United Kingdom also had the largest share of individuals who self-reported their asthma at 9.4 percent. Asthma is characterised as a chronic lung condition that often starts in early childhood. It is caused by inflammation of the air tract thereby narrowing the air passages. The severity of symptoms varies between individuals, with the main symptoms including wheezing, breathlessness, a tight chest and coughing. While there is no cure for asthma, there are treatments available which help to control the symptoms. Individuals are issued with controlled medication such as inhalers. The use of such inhalers depends on the individuals treatment plan and how often they need to use the them. According to a survey conducted in Europe 54 percent of individuals in Germany and 52 percent of individuals in the UK use their controller medication every day.
