Answer

The mortality rate from asthma has increased at an alarming rate. From 1993-1995, the overall annual age-adjusted death rate for asthma increased 40%. The rise in the mortality rate has been even higher among blacks, among people living in poverty, and among children aged 4 years or younger and those aged 9-16 years. More recently, asthma mortality rates are trending lower. [6]
