Prevalence of asthma and its therapeutic considerations

Asthma is an anti-inflammatory chronic disease which affects the lungs. It mainly affects the airway linings which swells and the muscles encircling the airway tightening causes the airway narrow. This makes it difficult to get airway in and out of the lungs which causes the bronchial hyper responsiveness. The symptoms of the disease include:

  • coughing,
  • wheezing,
  • abdominal pain,
  • fatigue,
  • increase in respiratory pulse rates (Corn 2013).

The prevalence of the allergic conjunctivitis is found more in summer and spring (Høvding, 2008). The substance that triggers the conjunctivitis include:

Non linear regression analysis in STATA and its interpretation

In the previous article on Linear Regression using STATA, a simple linear regression model was used to test the hypothesis. However the linear regression will not be effective if the relation between the dependent and independent variable is non linear. The non linear regression is used more in the real life as compared to the linear regression. Read more »

Procedure and interpretation of linear regression analysis using STATA

Linear regression analysis is conducted to predict the dependent variable based on one or more independent variables. The basic regression equation is:

Prevalence allergic rhinitis and its diagnosis with therapeutic considerations

Allergic rhinitis is a group of symptoms leading to nasal congestion, itching and inflammation. The symptoms occur when the subject is allergic to dust, mite, pollen (Seidman et al., 2015). It is mediated by IgE antibodies and the mast cells. The prevalence of the disorder is continuously increasing and affecting 10 – 30% of the global population (Ozdoganoglu & Songu, 2012).

Variable management in STATA

Data entered in STATA can be classified either as numeric or string type. Associated with each type of data is its storage type i.e. the numbers are stored as byte, int, long, float, or double. STATA takes “float” as the default storage type for its variables. Similarly byte, int and long are usually used to hold integers. The table given below defines the storage type with minimum and maximum value for each variable along with byte size. Read more »
