CDC's BRFSS Prevalence Data--Start Page

I found you guys another cool tool, especially if you are doing research.

"Established in 1984 by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS) is a state-based system of health surveys that collects information on health risk behaviors, preventive health practices, and health care access primarily related to chronic disease and injury. For many states, the BRFSS is the only available source of timely, accurate data on health-related behaviors. "

  1. I told my friend about your site. She's a social worker for a school system. She plans on making use of it once school's back in. Thanks for your continued diligence!

  2. Boy I needed that! Thanks! I was feeling like maybe it had worn out it's usefulness as I only had four or five visitors today. Thanks again :)

  3. Gosh, I really hope you realise you are providing a really useful set of links here. Mental note to remind myself to actually say so from time to time..

  4. thanks, cb! it means a lot to know people actually are using the resources I provide here. i know it's summer and that's a bad time for sites such as mine, so i just have to bit the bullet and deal with it :)
