cent), which is very much under control or completely under control (75 percent). However, nearly 20 percent experience some very severe symptoms, and 35 percent report their child experiences asthma-related symptoms year-round. -- Parents are more likely to seek all types of information about asthma than adult sufferers, and parents of child sufferers are more likely to make lifestyle changes because of their asthma than are adult asthmatics. -- 63 percent of parents say they understand their children's condition very or extremely well (compared with 57 percent of adults), but only 17 percent report that their child currently uses a Peak Flow meter.

       indicated dose of their fast-acting inhaler medication, Hispanic and

       percent, 1 percent) adults and parents of child sufferers.


    -- Severity of symptoms. Hispanic (19 percent, 12 percent) and Black (23

       percent, 11 percent) adults and parents of child sufferers tend to have

       more severe asthma-related symptoms than other (8 percent, 9 percent)

       adults and
