The foundation reviews factors such as the number of people diagnosed with asthma, the number of asthma medications used per patient and local air quality.

Other cities which made the list as "asthma capitals'' were Milwaukee; Atlanta; Memphis and St. Louis.

The rankings were sponsored by pharmaceutical company AstraZeneca.
