Back to Cholesterol Awareness.
*Asked of respondents who report having had their cholesterol checked. NOTE: These results are NOT COMPARABLE to those from earlier surveys. On previous surveys, this question was asked of respondents who had a cholesterol test AND were told their cholesterol levels were high. The 2021 version was asked of respondents who had a cholesterol test REGARDLESS of whether their levels were high. As a result, the 2021 version was asked of many more respondents, leading to a considerably smaller percentage reporting use of cholesterol medication.
PLEASE NOTE: Due to changes in the weighting methodology and other factors, results from 2021 are NOT comparable to 2010
and earlier years.
***The estimate was suppressed because it did not meet statistical reliability standards. See BRFSS 2021 Annual Results Technical Notes for more details.
