Behavioral Risk Factors Surveillance System

The world's largest, on-going telephone health survey system operated by the Centers for Disease Control.

The Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS) is the world's largest, on-going telephone health survey system operated by the Centers for Disease Control.

By collecting behavioral health risk data at the state and local level, BRFSS has become a powerful tool for targeting and building health promotion activities. As a result, BRFSS users have increasingly demanded more data and asked for more questions on the survey.

Currently, there is a wide sponsorship of the BRFSS survey, including most divisions in the CDC National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion; other CDC centers; and federal agencies, such as the Health Resources and Services Administration, Administration on Aging, Department of Veterans Affairs, and Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration.
