Landmark 'Pediatric Allergies in America' Survey Uncovered Negative Impact of Allergy Symptoms on Children
Date:3/17/2008

A national probability sample of 500 adults, aged 18 and older, who had at least one child who had been diagnosed with allergic rhinitis, nasal allergies or hay fever, and who had nasal allergy symptoms or had taken prescription medicine for allergies in the past 12 months, were interviewed by telephone about their condition and treatment.

More than 35,000 households in the United States were screened to identify nasal allergy sufferers between ages 4 and 17. Individual screening was conducted with a parent in the household to confirm that their child had been diagnosed with nasal allergies and suffered from them or been treated for them in the past 12 months. Parents of children without allergies (N=504) were also interviewed as a comparison group. A third parallel survey was conducted among 501 healthcare practitioners, including a national sample of 401 doctors in direct patient care in outpatient settings: 100 in family practice specialties, 101 allergists, 100 otolaryngologists, and 100 pediatricians. In addition, 50 nurse practitioners and 50 physician assistants were interviewed as part of the survey.

The survey was conducted by the national public opinion research organization, Schulman, Ronca and Bucuvalas, Inc. (SRBI) and made public by Sepracor Inc, a leading manufacturer and distributor of respiratory pharmaceutical products.
