Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System 2011 prevalence data showing percentage of adult population by state or territory that reported ever being told by a physician or health professional that they had chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), chronic bronchitis, or emphysema

Fact sheets on COPD are available for all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico. Each fact sheet provides a table with the reported prevalence of COPD among adults in the state or territory by age, race/ethnicity, sex, employment status, education level, household income, marital status, smoking status, and asthma history. Each fact sheet also includes a figure depicting health and healthcare characteristics by COPD status. Data obtained through Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System.

In 2011, some states also collected additional information from respondents with COPD about using a diagnostic procedure, daily medication use, physician visits, hospital or emergency room visits, and how shortness of breath affects quality of life. In many states, adding these questions was supported by an interagency collaboration between the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute and CDC.
