Respiratory symptoms were elicited and peak expiratory flow rate (PEFR) was measured in 105 Oriya housewives. Chronic bronchitis and bronchial asthma were observed in 2.9% and 1.9% of cases respectively. The mean age, height and PEFR of the remaining 99 asymptomatic healthy females were 40.2 ± 10.6 years, 150.1 ± 5.9 cms and 270.9 ± 69.4 L/min respectively. PEFR values in the Oriya females were less than that reported in other Indian females.
