- Asthma Call-back Survey (ACBS)
The ACBS is an in-depth asthma survey developed and funded by the Air Pollution and Respiratory Health Branch (APRHB) in NCEH. It is conducted with BRFSS survey respondents who report an asthma diagnosis. The ACBS was piloted in three states in 2005 and has been conducted each year since. A majority of states participate in the ACBS each year.
AsthmaStats is a growing collection of Fact Sheets, Interactive Maps, and Graphs about public health issues related to asthma.
- Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS) Prevalence Data
BRFSS is a state-based, random-digit-dialed telephone survey designed to monitor the prevalence of the major behavioral risks among adults associated with premature morbidity and mortality.
- National Health Interview Survey (NHIS) Prevalence Data
NHIS is a multistage probability sample survey designed to solicit health and demographic information about the population, conducted annually with face-to-face interviews in a nationally representative sample of households.
