FLBRFSS collects data on the health of Floridians.

 

Florida is one of 50 states conducting the Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS) with financial and technical assistance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). This state-based telephone surveillance system is designed to collect data on individual risk behaviors and preventive health practices related to the leading causes of morbidity and mortality in the United States. Information from the survey is used for health planning, program evaluation, and monitoring health objectives within the Department of Health. The target population of BRFSS are people 18 years and older, who reside in a Florida household. In Florida, BRFSS started in 1986. Since then, it has been conducted annually. Sample Size and Response Rate, 1986-2016




 

The 2018 BRFSS is currently being conducted. If you receive a phone call from 239-896-1211 on behalf of the Florida Department of Health and CDC asking you to answer some questions about your health and health practices it is a legitimate phone call. If you have any questions or concerns about the Florida BRFSS please call 866-779-6122. We appreciate you taking the time to participate in the Florida BRFSS. This survey allows the Department to develop effective health policies and programs for all Floridians.
