The Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS) is an ongoing data collection program developed and conducted to monitor state-level prevalence of the major behavioral risks associated with premature morbidity and mortality among adults. BRFSS data and documentation since 1990 are available for download in several formats from the BRFSS Web site. The site also provides interactive databases containing prevalence and trends data for health behavior and health risks for each state in the nation.
These data are not available from ICPSR. Users should consult the data owners directly (via CDC's Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System) for details on obtaining these resources.
