BRFSS, Years 2011-Forward Query Measure Selection

Overview

The BRFSS collects uniform, state-specific data on preventive health practices and risk behaviors that are linked to chronic diseases, injuries, and preventable infectious diseases in the adult population. The survey is conducted using scientific telephone survey methods. Excluded are adults living in households without a landline telephone and those living in group quarters such as college dormitories, nursing homes, military barracks, and prisons. Results have been weighted to the adult population by age, gender and geographic area of residence. All fifty states, Washington D.C., Puerto Rico, U.S. Virgin Islands, and Guam participate in the survey.

The BRFSS Survey data in this IBIS-Q query module have been collected and maintained by the Survey Unit in the New Mexico Department of Health, Injury and Behavioral Epidemiology Bureau, in collaboration with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Starting in 2011, improvements were made to the BRFSS sampling (including cell phones) and weighting procedures to allow BRFSS data to better represent the New Mexico population. Data from earlier years are not comparable to data from 2011-forward. Please visit the: [[a href=./contentfile/docs/Query/BRFSS/BRFSS_fact_sheet_Aug2012.pdf BRFSS Factsheet page]] for more detail.
