A count of finished admission episodes (FAEs) with a primary diagnosis of asthma for the age groups 0-17 years and 18 years and over, in Birmingham Edgbaston Westminster parliamentary constituency, Birmingham Westminster parliamentary constituencies, and West Midland Government Office Region of residence, for the years 2010-11 to 2017-18, is attached.

The data in both tables should not be described as a count of people as the same person may have been admitted to hospital on one or more occasion.
