The goal of this research is to determine 1) What progress has been made in reducing the
prevalence of asthma and/or reducing its severity over the past decade 2) What progress has been made in reducing the developmental and behavioral co-morbidities of asthma during the current decade and 3) What role health disparities risk factors have had in exacerbating or mitigating asthma and its developmental and behavioral co-morbidities as measured by two sequential National Surveys of Children's Health. The results will help focus future intervention efforts in further improving the health care of children with the most prevalent of serious chronic health conditions.
