Asthma Data and Reports

Contact the Florida Asthma Program

Data are compiled and used by the Florida Asthma Program to assess the burden of asthma in Florida, and to monitor and evaluate the impact and effectiveness of efforts over time. Data are distributed for use by stakeholders, including public health partners, policy makers, and health care providers, to improve asthma outcomes and reduce costs to individuals and health care systems in Florida.  Data related to adult and child prevalence and associated risk behaviors, emergency department visits, hospitalizations, mortality, and program specific data are available at the state and local levels.

Additional Resources

  • County Environmental Health Profiles
    These profile reports display a variety of county-level environmental health indicators within the following domains: air quality, asthma, built environment, carbon monoxide, enteric diseases, heart attacks, heat-related events, indoor air, injuries, pesticides and population characteristics to assess and monitor environmental health issues.
  • Preventable Hospitalizations Under 65 from Asthma
    Asthma is an Ambulatory Care Sensitive condition, meaning that timely and effective ambulatory care, such as preventing, controlling, or managing a condition, could decrease the rate of avoidable hospitalizations. This link provides rates of preventable asthma hospitalizations for Floridians under the age of 65 by county.  High rates of Ambulatory Care Sensitive hospitalizations in a community may be an indicator of a lack of or failure of prevention efforts, a primary care resource shortage, poor performance of primary health care delivery systems, or other factors that create barriers to obtaining timely and effective care.
