Prevalence of Asthma, Asthma Attacks, and Emergency Department Visits for Asthma Among Working Adults - National Health Interview Survey, 2011-2016.

Abstract 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 (1). Workplace exposures can cause asthma in a previously healthy worker or can trigger asthma exacerbations in workers with current asthma* (2). 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 who, at the time of the survey, were employed at some time during the 12 months preceding the interview. During 2011-2016, 6.8% of adults (11 million) employed at any time in the past 12 months had current asthma; among those, 44.7% experienced an asthma attack, and 9.9% had an asthma-related ED visit in the previous year. Current asthma prevalence was highest among workers in the health care and social assistance industry (8.8%) and in health care support occupations (8.8%). The increased prevalence of current asthma, asthma attacks, and asthma-related ED visits in certain industries and occupations might indicate increased risks for these health outcomes associated with workplace exposures. These findings might assist health care and public health professionals in identifying workers in industries and occupations with a high prevalence of current asthma, asthma attacks, and asthma-related ED visits who should be evaluated for possible work-related asthma. Guidelines intended to promote effective management of work-related asthma are available (2,3).

AB  - 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 (1). Workplace
      exposures can cause asthma in a previously healthy worker or can trigger asthma
      exacerbations in workers with current asthma* (2). 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 who, at the time of the survey, were employed at some time
      during the 12 months preceding the interview. During 2011-2016, 6.8% of adults
      (11 million) employed at any time in the past 12 months had current asthma; among
      those, 44.7% experienced an asthma attack, and 9.9% had an asthma-related ED
      visit in the previous year. Current asthma prevalence was highest among workers
      in the health care and social assistance industry (8.8%) and in health care
      support occupations (8.8%). The increased prevalence of current asthma, asthma
      attacks, and asthma-related ED visits in certain industries and occupations might
      indicate increased risks for these health outcomes associated with workplace
      exposures. These findings might assist health care and public health
      professionals in identifying workers in industries and occupations with a high
      prevalence of current asthma, asthma attacks, and asthma-related ED visits who
      should be evaluated for possible work-related asthma. Guidelines intended to
      promote effective management of work-related asthma are available (2,3).
