In this paper, researchers use Medical Expenditure Panel Survey, National Nursing Home Survey and Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services data sets to arrive at medical and absenteeism costs for adults with COPD; state-specific and national costs and projections are also included. In 2010, Wyoming incurred the highest overall financial COPD costs while California incurred the least. In 2010, more than 16 million work days were lost due to COPD.
