Want to know more about the trends in asthma in the UK? Want to explore available data to see changes over time, and in different parts of the UK? Interactive maps coming soon.
At the Asthma UK Centre for Applied Research, we are constantly analysing the routine datasets we have on asthma in order to provide key estimates of the indicators of the burden of asthma in the UK and its member nations.
These estimates include incidence (rate of new asthma cases), prevalence (proportion of people with asthma at a specific time point), rate of hospital admissions, number of medication prescriptions, deaths, costs to the NHS, and social costs (e.g. disability allowance payments and school and work absenteeism).
Explore data from across the UK in our interactive maps. These are best viewed on a desktop screen.
