COPD Statistics

In the United States, 16.4 million people reported a diagnosis of COPD. It is estimated that millions more may have the disease without knowing it, because they remain undiagnosed. COPD is the third leading cause of death in the United States. There are approximately 700,000 hospitalizations with the principal diagnosis of COPD in the United States each year. About half of the estimated $50 billion in annual health care expenditures for COPD has been  attributed to costs associated with hospitalizations for COPD exacerbations.

The narration illustrates the number of cancer-causing chemicals contained in secondhand smoke as well as the morbidity and mortality statistics associated with it. “Ain’t no joke, breathing secondhand smoke!”.
