Asthma In America - What's That?

Many people with asthma have had someone tell them to “stop overreacting” or “just breathe.” For some reason, not everyone takes asthma seriously. However, asthma is a serious condition that can strongly impact the lives of those who have it; and this is no small footprint, considering 1 in 13 people in the United States lives with asthma.

In today's age of the internet, many people jump online to find information about asthma and the different treatments available to manage it. But what they find isn't always true. We want to help others understand what living with asthma is really like, and we believe the best way to find the truth is to ask the people who know the most: people with asthma.

How can a survey help?

The Asthma In America 2021 survey is an annual survey on Asthma.net that seeks to help you get the information that you need. And we're not just talking about diagnosis and treatments, but also fulfill the informational and support needs those living with asthma may have on their everyday lives. The survey covers “basics” like diagnosis and treatment experiences, but also dives into the nitty-gritty, like the emotional impact and the seemingly “small” day-to-day challenges.

Each person that takes the Asthma In America 2021 survey contributes to a better understanding of asthma and can help others who are going through it feel less alone. Sharing experiences in the survey can reveal how similar each person’s asthma journey is, as well as the differences that make each journey unique.

What will the survey ask Mm?
The survey will ask about diagnosis, symptoms, symptom management, quality of life and relationships, healthcare professional engagement, and treatment awareness and experience. We do not require your name, address, or other personal information.

Please note that you do not have to take the survey all at once. Feel free to bookmark the survey in your Internet browser and return when you are able. You will resume where you left off.

How do we use the In America Survey data?
Survey responses help us and our partners better understand the asthma community. All survey responses are kept confidential, reported only in total (your specific responses will not be reported individually), and will become property of Health Union, LLC.

What happens after I take the survey?

After the Asthma In America survey closes each year, the Editorial Team at Asthma.net takes your responses and creates an infographic filled with information about living with asthma.

But that’s not all – over the year, we publish articles based on learnings from the survey, like this one about how fatigue and asthma might be more connected than previously thought or this article about the emotions living with asthma can bring up in a person. Each article published using responses from the survey contributes to the information available to those affected by asthma and helps them connect with those who have walked the same path.
