Illinois Asthma Surveillance

Surveillance activities include monitoring asthma prevalence, quality of life issues, hospitalizations, emergency department visits and mortality. This data is important in planning education and intervention programs and in developing policies necessary for preventing and controlling asthma in the future.

Numerous data sources are used to describe the burden of asthma. A presentation has compiled the most used surveillance sources of national, Illinois and local level asthma data.
