Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS) Injury Data

The Injury and Violence Prevention Branch Surveillance Unit compiles and analyzes BRFSS data related to injury and violence. Drinking and driving, seatbelt usage, falls and firearms are injury topics covered by the BRFSS survey.

The North Carolina BRFSS is a telephone survey of state residents ages 18 and older carried out in conjunction with the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Through BRFSS, information is collected in a routine, standardized manner at the state level on a variety of health behaviors and preventive health practices related to the leading causes of death and disability, including injury. BRFSS interviews are conducted monthly and data are analyzed annually (on a calendar-year basis).
