BRFSS Data Project
The Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS) is a well-known public health survey conducted annually by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in the United States. It is one of the largest ongoing telephone health surveys in the world and gathers data on a wide range of health-related topics, such as health conditions, risk behaviors, and preventive health practices. The BRFSS data is used by public health officials, researchers, and policymakers to identify emerging health issues and to design and evaluate public health interventions. The survey data provides valuable insights into the health status and behaviors of individuals across different states and territories in the US and is an important resource for advancing public health research and policy.
