Supplementary notes

COPD was defined by an affirmative response to the question “Has a doctor, nurse, or other health professional ever told you that you had chronic obstructive pulmonary disease or COPD, emphysema, or chronic bronchitis?” Persons were considered to have never smoked if they reported never smoking or smoked less than 100 cigarettes during their lifetime. Former smokers had smoked at least 100 cigarettes in their life, but were not current smokers. Current smokers had smoked at least 100 cigarettes and currently smoked some days or every day.
