COPD fact sheets are available. Each fact sheet also includes a figure showing health and health care characteristics by COPD status. Data are from the  Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS).

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