2007 Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance Report

Wednesday, June 10, 2009
The Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS) is a randomized telephone survey of adults aged 18 years and above. Established in 1984 by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the BRFSS is a state-based system of health surveys that collects information on health risk behaviors, preventive health practices, and health care access primarily related to chronic disease and injury. For many states, the BRFSS is the only available source of timely, accurate data on health-related behaviors.
