Percent of Asthma Patients with ED Visit (Asthma-Driven)

New York Finger Lakes Region

The chart below is based on analysis of insurance claims data for people with asthma. Consistent with the implications of the two prior maps, this data shows that Focus Area* residents with asthma are much more likely to wind up in the ED due to asthma events than people elsewhere in Monroe County or the region. *

The Focus Area consists of eight high-poverty ZIP codes in the city of Rochester with particularly high concentration of African-Americans and Latinos. See a map of the Focus Area here.
