Sources & Notes

Notes: All estimates of disease prevalence are based on self-reported receipt of diagnosis from a doctor, nurse, or other health professional. Estimates of high cholesterol are limited to the subset of the population (~80%) that reported ever having their cholesterol checked. US estimates are based on data from the 50 states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico. All population-level estimates are weighted to account for complex survey design and sociodemographic characteristics of the survey respondents. Estimates based on fewer than 50 interviews have been suppressed due to unreliability (denoted with *). The placeholder NA is used when specific measures were not assessed in certain calendar years or among certain subpopulations.
