BRFSS Health Indicator Selection

Overview

The BRFSS collects uniform, state-specific data on preventive health practices and risk behaviors that are linked to chronic diseases, injuries, and preventable infectious diseases in the adult population. The survey is conducted using scientific telephone survey methods. Both cell phones and land lines are included. Excluded are adults living in group quarters with a central phone system, such as college dormitories, nursing homes, military barracks, and prisons. Results have been weighted to the adult population by age, gender, race, education, marital status, home ownership, telephone source (landline versus cell phone), and county of residence. All fifty states, Washington D.C., Puerto Rico, U.S. Virgin Islands, and Guam participate in the survey. National estimates can be obtained by visiting www.cdc.gov/brfss. The BRFSS survey data in this query module have been collected and maintained by the Hawaii State Department of Health, Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion Division, in collaboration with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
