Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System


The Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS) is a state-based system of health surveys that collects information on health risk behaviors and health conditions.  Random telephone surveys are conducted monthly in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Guam, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

West Virginia was one of the 15 initial states to conduct the survey when it was initiated in 1984 by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).  Currently, the survey is conducted by the West Virginia Health Statistics Center in collaboration with the CDC.  More than 3,000 West Virginia adults are interviewed each year.
