The Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS) is an annual statewide landline and cellular phone health surveillance system designed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and coordinated by all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and territories.
The BRFSS provides health data on chronic health conditions, preventive screenings, health care coverage, risk behaviors, societal and environmental factors that impact an individual’s health and quality of life. The DC BRFSS is conducted to 4,000-4,800 residents annually in all eight city wards.
