Abstract
The analysis presented in this issue of the Bulletin is part of a joint effort of the Occupational Health Surveillance Program and Asthma Prevention and Control Program to look at asthma prevalence across occupations in Massachusetts using data from the 2010 Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS.) Until now, population-based estimates of the burden of asthma among MA workers in different occupations have not been available. Estimates of asthma prevalence by occupation can guide broad-based prevention and control efforts in MA and may provide useful information for clinicians treating workers with asthma.
