Screening and risk factor variables are available for a limited selection of race/age/sex combinations.
These data come from different sources. For more information please visit one of the following:
- BRFSS Survey Data is the source for this data collected by the Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS) sponsored by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
- American Nonsmokers’ Rights Foundation (no-smoke.org).
- Tobacco Use Supplement to the Current Population Survey (TUS-CPS). Detailed information about survey questions can be found here.
- Small Area Estimates are based on a statistical model which combines information from the Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System and the National Health Interview Survey to correct for nonresponse and undercoverage bias and are enhanced in small areas by borrowing information from similar areas across the nation.
