The proportion of respondents excluded due to chronic conditions, medication use, or pregnancy as the cause of their symptoms in the present study (12%) was lower than that in the previous NSAGI studies (16-19%) [22, 23, 36].
These values are weighted and are lower than those in the previous NSAGI studies (11-23% and 26-54%) [22, 23, 36].
The study response rate of 20% is lower than that in previous NSAGI studies [22,40] and maybe a source of bias if those who did not respond had different symptom profiles compared to those who participated in the study.
From previous NSAGI studies, the monthly prevalence of AGI fluctuates seasonally with peaks seen in winter/early spring and again in summer [22-24].
Available age and gender data were explored, and AGI results indicated little demographic difference to previous NSAGI studies (e.g., higher rates in children and lower rates in 65 years+ age group).
