More Kennedy Asthma Numbers

Postscript to Jonathan’s post about air pollution and asthma: Out in California, which has the highest smog levels in the nation by a large margin, Joel Schwartz has broken out asthma rates and air pollution levels at the county-by-county level. Guess what? There is nearly an inverse correlation between air pollution levels and asthma rates. Marin County has the third highest asthma rate in California, yet very low air pollution. I think Barbara Boxer is the cause of Marin’s high rate.

Also: Hospital admission rates for asthma in California are lower in the summer, when air pollution is highest. Kennedy’s head might explode if he contemplated this.
