Health Status (BRFSS) Charts
Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS), 2016-2020
The Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS) is the largest continuously conducted health survey system in the world, conducting telephone interviews with more than 400,000 U.S. adults each year. All 50 states, the District of Columbia, and several U.S. territories collaborate with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to collect information on health conditions and risk factors from the non-institutionalized adult population. Since 2013 NIOSH has sponsored an optional module designed to collect industry and occupation (I & O) data, and many states have incorporated this module into their survey.
