The County of Santa Clara Public Health Department is conducting an online health survey called the Behavioral Risk Factor Survey (BRFS) to understand the health needs of our county residents. The BRFS asks questions on health, health risk behaviors, preventive practices, and demographic information from adults ages 18 and older. The data are used to assess the health status of our county residents and provide insight into our health-related risk behaviors, chronic health conditions, and use of preventive services.
In February 2019, randomly
selected county residents received an invitation to participate in the mail. If
you participated and indicated that you would like to be contacted to answer
short online surveys, our partner, California State University Institute for
Social Research, will send follow-up links via email over the next few months.
Please be on the look-out for those surveys that also offer a small cash
reward. We thank you and appreciate your participation. The results of
this Health Survey will help shape our county and the results will be posted
here. With your input, we will continue to build a strong and vibrant community,
where all residents have the opportunity to lead healthy lives.
