Now available! 2015 Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System data!

The latest data on health-related risk behaviors, chronic health conditions, and use of preventive services among adults in Hawaii are available on the Hawaii Indicator-Based Information System (Hawaii-IBIS)!  Explore the more recent findings from the Hawaii Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS) using our newest data tool.  Hawaii-IBIS gives you the power to define your search and pinpoint the data you need.

Here are some of the highlights from the 2015 BRFSS data for Hawaii:

Almost 10% of men aged 65 to 74 years reported they have coronary heart disease.  This compares to less than 4% of women in the same age range.  The difference in coronary heart disease rates between men and women grows larger with age.

Approximately 1 in every 9 (11.6%) adults in Hawaii reports they have experienced depression.  However, among Caucasian females, that rate jumps to over 1 in 6 (22.2%).  Seeking support for depression is an important step in restoring quality of life.

Honolulu County has the lowest proportion of adults who consume at least five fruits and vegetables per day (18.4%).  Among the communities of Hawaii, the North Shore and Laie have the highest rate of fruit and vegetable consumption (33.3%).  The Dietary Guidelines for Americans recommend eating a wide range of fruits and vegetables every day.
