About the Survey

Children and Asthma in America was conducted by Schulman, Ronca and Bucuvalas, Inc. (SRBI), a national research firm specializing in health issues. A national sample of 41,433 households was screened to generate households with a child four to 18 years of age with current asthma. The survey included 801 in-depth telephone interviews with parents or caregivers of the designated child with asthma in the household or the child with asthma exclusively if he or she was 16 to 18 years of age. In addition, the survey included interviews with nearly 300 pairs of parents and their children (10 to 15 years old) to provide comparison responses. All interviews were conducted from February to May 2004, and assessed knowledge, attitudes and behavior regarding children and asthma. The maximum expected sampling error associated with a sample of this size would be +/- 3.5 percentage points at the 95% confidence level. The survey was released on behalf of Asthma Action America, a national asthma education campaign supported by leading organizations committed to improving asthma care in the U.S., and was funded by GlaxoSmithKline. GlaxoSmithKline is a research-based pharmaceutical company and a world leader in respiratory care.
