Record-Level Data Request

BRFSS Source Data and Documentation

 

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) provides extensive documentation for the Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS) on their website.  This resource is highly recommended for anyone interested in record level data and includes information about the sampling frame, survey administration, calculated variables, complex sampling weights and much more.  Additionally,  researchers can download the complete BRFSS data files for each year. These files will include all the BRFSS core questions and standard modules. They will not include state-added questions (including Hawaii-specific race/ethnicity).  However, extracts of state-added questions can be requested via our record level data request procedure and the records can be matched to the national data set using sequence number unique identifier for each record.
