2022 Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System Data

The 2022 data from the Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS) have been released on HHDW.org and HawaiiHealthMatters.org. Explore data on health-related risk behaviors, chronic health conditions, use of preventive services, and more in Hawaiʻi.

This year, explore 18 new indicators on HHDW.org in the topic areas of Access to Health Care, Chronic Diseases and Conditions, Demographics, Health Behaviors, and Screening and Preventive Services. A full list of these indicators is available in the Data Release Notes.

Here are some highlights from the 2022 data:

  • Nearly all adults (97.8%) have health insurance coverage, with the percentage rising with age. For those ages 18-24, the coverage rate is 95.8%, increasing to 99.7% for those ages 75 and older.
  • More than half (55%) of adults walked or rode a bicycle around their neighborhood for at least 10 minutes once or more in the past month, compared to less than a third (27.2%) who walked or biked 15 or more days in the past month.
  • Two-thirds (67.8%) of adults did not have a sunburn in the past 12 months, while 10.1% experienced one sunburn, 8.3% experienced two, and 13.8% experienced three or more. Men were more likely than women to report three or more sunburns (17.4% and 10.3%, respectively).
  • Over a quarter (26.8%) of people ages 18-49 years report having received at least one dose of the HPV vaccine. This is a significant increase since 2018 (16.1%).
  • Over 1 in 10 adults (11.5%) reported they did not have good mental health for at least 14 days in the past 30 days. Rates vary by county from 9.9% in Kauaʻi, 10.7% in Honolulu, 13.2% in Hawaiʻi, to 13.5% in Maui.
  • New indicators reveal that 5.8% of adults report ever having a traumatic brain injury and 6.2% report ever having a spinal cord injury.
