National Health Interview Survey, United States, 2000-2010: Percentage of Children Aged ≤17 Years with Eczema or Any Kind of Skin Allergy

I am copying the image and wording directly from the CDC's website.  Households were randomly selected and asked the following question: "During the past 12 months, has [child] had eczema or any kind of skin allergy?"  The graphed results are below.  The prevalence of eczema or skin allergies has nearly doubled in the 3 ethnic groups interviewed: black, Hispanic and white.
"From 2000 to 2010, the prevalence of eczema or any kind of skin allergy increased among non-Hispanic black, non-Hispanic white, and Hispanic children in the United States. The prevalence of eczema or skin allergy increased from 8.6% to 17.1% among non-Hispanic black children, from 5.0% to 9.9% among Hispanic children, and from 7.6% to 12.6% among non-Hispanic white children."
