Asthma Hospitalizations Among Children and Youth

The Canadian Institute for Health Information (CIHI) recently released a report examining asthma hospitalization by age, sex, income, location and education among children and youth at the provincial/territorial and national levels, as well as patterns over time. Using data from the Hospital Morbidity Database (HMDB) (2006–2007 to 2015–2016) housed at the CIHI, as well as linked data from the 2006 Census–Discharge Abstract Database (DAD), the report shows that hospitalizations for asthma have declined significantly for both boys and girls over the past decade, and across all age groups, but that asthma continues to be one of the leading causes of hospital stays for people younger than 20, with more than 6,000 hospitalizations in 2015–2016. Moreover, children and youth living in lower-income neighbourhoods continued to experience significantly higher rates of hospitalization than those in higher-income neighbourhoods.
