Prevalence of Asthma, Asthma Attacks, and Emergency Department Visits for Asthma Among Working Adults
National Health Interview Survey, 2011–2016 In 2010, an estimated 8.2% of U.S. adults had current asthma, and among these persons, 49.1% had had an asthma attack during the past year. Workplace exposures can cause asthma in a previously healthy worker or can trigger asthma exacerbations in workers with current asthma. To assess the industry- and occupation-specific prevalence of current asthma, asthma attacks, and asthma-related emergency department (ED) visits among working adults, CDC analyzed 2011–2016 National Health Interview Survey (NHIS) data for participants aged ≥18 years...
Asthma Mortality Among Persons Aged 15-64 Years, by Industry and Occupation
United States, 1999–2016 In 2015, an estimated 18.4 million U.S. adults had current asthma, and 3,396 adult asthma deaths were reported (1). An estimated 11%–21% of asthma deaths might be attributable to occupational exposures (2). To describe asthma mortality among persons aged 15–64 years,* CDC analyzed multiple cause-of-death data† for 1999–2016 and industry and occupation information collected from 26 states§ for the years 1999, 2003, 2004, and 2007–2012. Proportionate mortality ratios (PMRs)¶ for asthma among persons aged 15–64 years were...
Asthma Among Employed Adults, by Industry and Occupation - 21 States (2013)
Workers in various industries and occupations are at risk for work-related asthma. Data from the 2006–2007 adult Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS) Asthma Call-back Survey (ACBS), an in-depth asthma survey conducted with respondents who report an asthma diagnosis, from 33 states indicated that up to 48% of adult current asthma might be related to work and could therefore potentially be prevented (2). Identification of the industries and occupations with increased prevalence of asthma might inform work-related asthma intervention and prevention efforts. To assess the industry...
Work-related and Occupational Asthma in Great Britain 2016
Work-related asthma describes all adult asthma where there is an association between symptoms and work, including work-aggravated asthma and a smaller numbers of cases of occupational asthma often caused directly by exposure to respiratory sensitisers in the workplace. The latest information shows: - There are currently an estimated 14,000 (95% confidence interval: 10,000 – 17,000) new cases of “breathing and lung problems” each year caused or made worse by work according to the Labour Force Survey (LFS). A substantial proportion of these may be work-related asthma. - Annual numbers...
Work-Related Asthma - 22 States, 2012
Work-related asthma (WRA) is a preventable occupational disease associated with serious adverse health outcomes. Using the 2006–2009 Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS) Adult Asthma Call-back Survey (ACBS) data from 38 states and the District of Columbia, CDC estimated that among ever-employed adults with current asthma, the proportion of current asthma that is work-related was 9.0%. In 2011, the BRFSS cellular telephone samples were added to the traditional landline telephone samples and the weighting methodology was changed. In 2012, a revised ACBS question on WRA diagnosis...
