Monthly trends in deaths attributed to asthma in the 5-34 year age group were examined for England and Wales over the period 1960-82. Deaths were most frequent in the third quarter (July to September) and peaked in August. Analysis of the 1970-82 period showed that this variation was present in the three constituent age groups 5-14, 15-24, and 25-34 but was most pronounced in the 5-14 year olds.
