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.
