Back to Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD).

*Asked only of those who reported having COPD.

DUE TO SMALL NUMBERS, COUNTY-LEVEL AND AHEC RESULTS ARE NOT AVAILABLE.

NOTE: In 2011, the State Center for Health Statistics developed its own set of sample weights for N.C. counties and AHEC regions.
These county and AHEC weights cannot also be used to weight the data for the three N.C. regions. Consequently, regional results are not shown here, as in previous years.

^Use caution in interpreting cell sizes less than 50., % = Percentage, C.I.(95%) = Confidence Interval (at 95 percent probability level).
Percentages are weighted to population characteristics and therefore cannot be calculated exactly from the numbers in this table.
