Asthma In America – What’s That?

One in 13 people in the United States has asthma. While asthma is relatively common, that doesn’t mean it’s not life-changing. Asthma causes many changes in our day-to-day lives: doctor’s appointments, follow up visits, taking maintenance medication, washing asthma supplies, and remembering to pack our rescue inhaler and having it handy at all times!

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 know the truth about asthma, 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?

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 2020 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 happens after I take the survey?

After the Asthma In America survey closes each year, the Editorial Team at 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.
