*The 2019 Behavioral Risk Factors Survey is happening now! Click here to learn more.*
Every 3 to 4 years, the Santa Clara County Public Health Department (SCCPHD) conducts a countywide health survey called the Behavioral Risk Factor Survey (BRFS). The survey is based on the Center for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS) survey. Occasional improvements in methods, with accompanying effects on results, have long been a necessary part of all public health surveillance systems, including population health surveys like the SCCPHD BRFS.
