Asthma is a chronic respiratory disease that affects millions of people worldwide, and its incidence and severity can be influenced by various factors, including air masses, weather conditions, and sociodemographic. This study used statistical analysis and GIS to analyze the spatial distribution of asthma calls and their relationship to sociodemographic. Results show that the relationship between asthma prevalence is higher among certain sociodemographic groups, such as those with lower income, educational attainment, minorities, and young children. This study provides valuable insight into the complex relationship between asthma, air masses and sociodemographic and provides a basis for further research and interventions to improve public health.
