Asthma Capitals    Print Page

Asthmacapmap There is no place safe from asthma, and some cities make living with asthma more difficult. More than 20 million people live with asthma in the U.S., making it one of the most common and costly diseases.

The Asthma Capitals is an annual research project to call attention to “the most challenging places to live with asthma,” and to advocate for changes in each city to improve the quality of life for people with asthma. Rankings are based on analysis of 12 factors in three groups:

  • Prevalence Factors – morbidity/mortality statistics
  • Risk Factors – air quality, smoking laws and more
  • Medical Factors – medicine use and access to doctors
