  • Description
  • Details

This is the first text on the principles and methods of asthma epidemiology.

The text describes the types of asthma epidemiology studies, and discusses the strengths and limitations of the various methods of measuring asthma prevalence and asthma morbidity and the major risk factors for asthma, methods of studying the causes of asthma deaths. The book will therefore be of interest not only to epidemiologists, but also to the very large number of respiratory physicians, allergists, and pediatricians who are becoming involved in asthma epidemiology.
