Heart Disease Surveillance System

$199 / year

The Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS) collects surveys through pone calls related to health-related risk behaviors, chronic diseases and use of preventive services in the US, the data covers all 50 states, the District of the District of Columbia and three US from more than 400,000 adults. This data is used as a tool for developing health promotion activities. The Cardiovascular Disease Surveillance System, part of the BRFSS, arised from the need to quantify and track the magnitude of burden of cardiovascular diseases monitoring outbreaks and tracking national health statistics of health disease, strock and their risk factors. It consists in an integration of different health indicators from different data sources to assess the burden of cardiovascular diseases and their risk factors in public health in the US. The data is presented in a manner that permitted to develop an online data trend and maps, containing location and indicators as cardiovascular diseases, risk factors and biomarkers, stratifying the data by age group, sex and race.

Complexity

“Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System is a continuous, state-based surveillance system that collects information about modifiable risk factors for chronic diseases and other leading causes of death. Indicators from this data source have been computed by personnel in CDC’s Division for Heart Disease and Stroke Prevention (DHDSP). This dataset is one of the datasets provided by National Cardiovascular Disease Surveillance System. The system is designed to integrate multiple indicators from many data sources to provide a comprehensive picture of the public health burden of CVDs and associated risk factors in the United States. The data are organized by location (national, state, county, and selected sites) and indicator, and they include CVDs (e.g., heart failure) and risk factors (e.g., hypertension). The data can be plotted as trends and stratified by age group, sex, and race/ethnicity.”
