The Aberdeen Schools Asthma Survey (ASA) are repeated surveys over the longest period anywhere in the UK, and among the longest anywhere around the world. The percentage of children with asthma seen in the ASAS reflects other UK surveys, and therefore the ASAS results are relevant to the whole UK population. The aim of the researchers is to carry out the 8th repeated survey on the 50th anniversary of the initial 1964 survey. In addition to finding out how common asthma is, the rich and unique data collected over 50 years will allow them to investigate whether lifestyle changes may play a role in the development of asthma.
