Have you been taking any medications or other treatment for it (referring to the disease asked about in Q6017), during the last two weeks?
Do not know
Warning: these figures indicate the number of cases found in the data file. They cannot be interpreted as summary statistics of the population of interest.
The purpose of this question is to find out if the respondent is currently under treatment for asthma. An answer of “yes” is appropriate only if the respondent was taking any prescription medications for asthma (including using an inhaler to promote opening of airways) during the last two weeks, and not if the person says he or she usually takes medications but for some reason did not during the given period.
See the explanation for question Q6002.
