What is the Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System?
The Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS) is a yearly survey about the health of people in our state. It is the longest continuously running phone survey in the world and is the best source of information on health factors like tobacco use and insurance coverage. This information is used to set up public health programs and measure how well they are working. The Department of Health conducts the BRFSS in partnership with the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
Covered topics include:
- Access to healthcare
- Alcohol Use

- Chronic Disease
- Marijuana Use
- Mental Health
