Factors which have relationship with asthma are settlement ‘villages’ (OR=1,18; 95% CI 1,11-1,24), age = 60 years old (OR=3,66; 95% CI 3,35-3,99), education level ‘never’ (OR=1,86; 95% CI 1,64-2,13), unemployment (OR=1,23; 95% CI 1,13-1,35), BMI ‘thin’ (OR=1,45; 95% CI 1,39-1,51), ex smoking (OR=2,12; 95% CI 1,98-2,27), less physical activity (OR=1,13; 95% CI 1,08-1,18), food preservative consumption “often” (OR=1,12; 95% CI 1,06-1,19) and low economic status (OR=1,09; 95% CI 1,05-1,14).
