Environmental tobacco smoke and asthma in Philadelphia neighborhoods

A study of the relationship between passive tobacco smoke and asthma. 

Abstract: 

Using Geographical Information System (GIS) software, we superimposed the addesses of people with self reported asthma with addresses of those who self reported smoking.  Data was taken from a large survey of the incidence of various diseases in Philadelphia.  There was a large degree of overlap.  Also, asthma seemed to be more prevalent in the most crowded inner-city areas.
