|Year||Spring Allergy rank||Fall Allergy rank||Asthma rank|
* = A good or bad year for us, depending on your perspective!
If you are curious about how other cities were ranked this year only, go to the Allergy and Asthma Foundation of America's website or click on the link in the top left corner of this website. Prior year's rankings can be found by searching the internet. To see graphs of this years' pollen and mold counts, click here.
I disagree with the 3 measurements used to determine their rankings of Allergy Capitals:
- Pollen scores (airborne grass/tree/weed pollen and mold spores)*
- Number of allergy medications used per patient
- Number of allergy specialists per patient.
Separately, Greenville ranks about 20th in the spring and about 42nd in the fall fairly consistently.
