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.

Percentages are weighted to population characteristics and therefore cannot be calculated exactly from the numbers in this table.
