The Wyoming Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS) is an ongoing statewide telephone survey of adults age 18 and older. The purpose of the survey is to gather information on the prevalence of health behaviors and factors which are known to contribute to or increase the risk of chronic disease, acute illness, injury, disability and premature death. Wyoming is one of 50 states and several territories funded and supported through the National Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to conduct BRFSS annually. Currently Wyoming obtains just over 5,000 completed surveys per year.
Additional background and technical information can be found on the CDC BRFSS website: http://www.cdc.gov/brfss.
