Florida Asthma Program
Asthma Surveillance Data and Reports
The Florida Asthma Program conducts surveillance to understand the burden of asthma in Florida. Data are analyzed on a statewide
and, when available, county level to assist public health partners, policy makers, and health care providers in their efforts to improve asthma outcomes
and reduce costs to individuals and health care systems. Data are also used to monitor and evaluate
the impact and effectiveness of these efforts. Data
include population-based, adult and child prevalence and risk behaviors, mortality, hospitalizations, and program specific data.

Other Program Reports
County Environmental Health Profiles:
These profile reports display a variety of county-level environmental
health indicators within the following domains: air quality, asthma, built
environment, carbon monoxide, enteric diseases, heart attacks, heat-related
events, indoor air, injuries, pesticides and population characteristics to
assess and monitor environmental health issues.
Preventable Hospitalizations Under 65 from Asthma:
Asthma is an Ambulatory Care Sensitive condition, meaning that timely and effective ambulatory care, such as preventing, controlling, or managing a condition, could decrease the rate of avoidable hospitalizations.
This link provides rates of preventable asthma hospitalizations for
Floridians under the age of 65 by county. High rates of Ambulatory Care Sensitive hospitalizations in a community may be an indicator of a lack of or failure of prevention efforts, a primary care resource shortage, poor performance of primary health care delivery systems, or other factors that create barriers to obtaining timely and effective care.
