In brief: 10 %

World wide estimate is 10% - due to cigarette smoking and due to use of biofuels - like wood and others.
In usa incidence is 16.3 new cases per 1000 per year.

In brief: Around 24%

Based on a 1972 study of autopsy data, the overall incidence of emphysema in both sexes was 24% (35% in men and 9% in women 9%).
A more recent study found that the worldwide prevalence of COPD was 10.1%, so it depends on the source.
