Gene context of Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System

  • We studied a population-based sample of 8057 adults through the 2002 Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System, in Georgia and Tennessee, ascertaining a lifetime epilepsy prevalence of 2.1% in this population [22].
  • Correspondingly, prevalence estimates for 'sufficiently active' were similar for AA and NHS (56% and 55% respectively), but about 10% higher when BRFSS data were used, and about 26% higher when the IPAQ items were used, compared with estimates from the AA survey [23].
  • MAIN OUTCOME AND RESULTS: Results of three analyses on the issue of compact disability indicators, using public-use data sets (AHEAD, HRS, BRFSS), are presented [24].
  • Our objective was to identify factors associated with current cigarette smoking among Latino adults in Oregon. We used data from 1,356 Latino participants and, for comparison, 18,593 non-Latino White participants in the 2000-2002 Oregon Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS) [25].
