PURPOSE: Many areas and ethnic groups lack their own spirometer reference values. Caucasian reference values adjusted with a fixed ethnic correction factor were recommended for these areas and ethnic groups, while this method was doubted. This study was to investigate the feasibility of a fixed ethnic correction factor for spirometry between Caucasian and Chinese.
