Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS)

Abstract
Behavior risk factor surveillance system or BRFSS is a United States national self-report telephone survey that provides prevalence data concerning behavioral risk factors associated with the nation's most common health conditions.[1] A collaborative effort between the CDC and each state health department, it is the world's largest and nation's leading ongoing telephone survey. Established in 1984, today all 50 states and 3 U.S. territories participate in this survey. Each year's survey questionnaire is designed by each state's survey coordinator from its state health department and designated CDC staff.[2] Every year over 400 thousand noninstitutionalized U.S. resident adult telephone survey interviews are conducted to collect data about chronic health conditions, and risk behaviors associated with the nation's leading causes of morbidity and mortality including blood pressure, seat belt usage, smoking, drug use, cholesterol, cancer (breast, cervical, colorectal, prostate), immunization, sleep practices, health care access, alcohol use, drinking and driving, sex practices, HIV, and oral health.[3][4]
