Based on the questions, "Has a doctor or other health professional ever told you that [child's name] had asthma?" and "Does [child's name] still have asthma?"
Based on household interviews of a sample of the civilian noninstitutionalized population. This table is based on responses about the sample child, not all children in the family. Data came from the Sample Child File and were weighted using the Sample Child weight.
