3 Calculations of direct cost per person are based on Weiss, et al. (2000), inflated by medical care component of CPI to 2004. Indirect costs per person are based on Weiss, et al. (2000), inflated by percent change in average annual wages through 2004. Weiss KB, Sullivan SD, Lyttle CS. Trends in the cost of illness for asthma in the United States, 1985-1994. J Allergy Clin Immunol 2000 Sep;106(3):493-9.
4 Number of individuals of unknown age in each state was allocated across all age groups based on the proportion of the number of individuals in an age group to total number of eligibles.
