The epidemiology of asthma in Spain is known in children over six years of life, but no studies on younger children exist. Unlike in Anglo-Saxon countries, asthma prevalence in Spain is relatively low: about 9 % of 13-14 year olds reported symptoms during the preceding twelve months; and 10 % of parents of 6-7 year-old children report that their children suffered wheezing in the same period.

This prevalence was similar in older children in 2002 and in 1994, whereas it increased markedly in 6-7 year olds (from 7 % in 1994 to 10 % in 2002). Severe wheezing is much less common in both age groups (around 2 %). This also increased in the 6-7 year-old group, whereas it remained steady among 13-14 year olds.

At these ages there appears to be greater prevalence and severity of asthma in the coastal areas than on the central plateau.
