Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance

The BRFSS is an annual telephone survey that collects data on emerging public health issues, health conditions, risk factors and behaviors.

The Health Survey Program operates the Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS) in Massachusetts. We collect information on topics that are vital statewide and nationally, such as: racial disparities in health and health care, trends in chronic diseases, and health risk factors. Results are used for health care policy planning, as a guide for developing preventive health interventions, and as an assessment of health status in Massachusetts.
