Abstract (type = abstract)
BACKGROUND: “Asthma is a chronic inflammatory disorder of the airways....In susceptible individuals; this inflammation causes recurrent episodes of wheezing, breathlessness, chest tightness, and coughing, particularly at night or in the early morning. These episodes are usually associated with widespread but variable airflow obstruction that is often reversible either spontaneously or with treatment. The inflammation also causes an associated increase in the existing bronchial hyper responsiveness to a variety of stimuli” PURPOSE OF THE STUDY: This study will evaluate the impact of demographic and clinical predictors on the prevalence of childhood asthma among minority children aged 0-17 in United States. METHODS: For this research, data from the 2011-2012 survey will be employed to conduct the required statistical tests using SAS SOFTWARE to answer the addressed research questions. A total of 95,677 NSCH interviews were completed nationally by parents/caregivers of children and youth approximately 1,876 in each state and the District of Columbia, ranging from 1,811 in South Dakota to 2,200 in Texas. The Statistical analysis will begin with an estimation of the national prevalence of asthma among children aged 0-17 years and living in the United States. Characteristics of the sample population will then be compared with the general population to assess if there are differences or validate how the sample population represents the general population. The characteristics in Table 41 will show how levels asthma and severe asthma are distributed among children by their age, gender, race/ethnicity, SES, clinical predictors and insurance status. RESULTS: Results have shown that being from low SES and minority race/ethnicity group (Hispanic, Non-Hispanic Black, and multi R racial/other Non-Hispanic) will increase the asthma and severe asthma rates among children living in the US. DISCUSSION: Conducting a new study on a national scale to display the differences in childhood asthma prevalence among minority population living in United States is valuable for measuring the prevalence of this chronic disease and the discrepancy burden among US children; and for developing intervention programs for minority population living in US. This study will also find what is still confounding and unknown about childhood asthma and recommend areas for further research.
