Notes: Data includes only NC resident hospital discharges occurring in North Carolina with a primary diagnosis of asthma.
Numbers and rates may be smaller than the actual asthma-related hospital use for counties that border other states.
Rates based on small numbers (fewer than 20 cases) are unstable & should be interpreted with caution.
Numbers and rates shown here may differ from figures presented in previous reports due to changes in population estimates and revisions to hospital discharge files.
