Different types of data analysis tell different stories about asthma disparities in children. This study analyzed trends in racial disparities using both traditional population-based rates and at-risk rates. Population-based data methods found disparities in asthma prevalence among black children over time and asthma-related deaths increased. However, the at-risk analysis found the same racial disparities remained the same or decreased, suggesting that despite a growing asthma prevalence among black children compared to white children, progress has been made in addressing racial disparities in asthma outcomes.

In recent years, defilement of the air has significantly impacted the health and hygiene of the population at large. In order to address this issue properly, information is needed on the particulates responsible for affecting the quality of air both outdoor as well as indoors. Pollutants vary greatly in their composition, as well as from place to place. Data is required to interpret a correlation between particulates with that of health and hygiene. This information may signify an overall idea about the air that composes an environment and its quality.
