Adult Asthma 2013-2016

Last updated 12/18/2019

The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment has developed community level estimates for the number of adults that currently have Asthma for each census tract in Colorado based on modeled survey data collected in the Colorado Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System and population, race, gender, and age estimates for each census tract from the American Community Survey. For additional information pertaining to the data and methodology, please visit the CDPHE Community Level Estimates home page.The estimate for each census tract represents an average that was derived using multiple years of BRFSS survey responses (2013-2016) and American Community Survey population & demographic estimates.CDPHE used a model-based approach to measure the relationship between age, race, gender, poverty, education, location and existing Asthma data from the Colorado BRFSS survey, and applied this relationship to predict the number of persons' who have Asthma for each census tract in Colorado. These probabilities are based on demographic stratification to American Community Survey population estimates (2011-2015) for each census tract in Colorado. The model ultimately determines (or predicts) an estimate representing the percentage of adults who have ever been diagnosed with Asthma and still have the condition for each census tract in Colorado. These estimates do not represent direct survey estimates.
