BRFSS Asthma Call-back Survey
The Asthma Call-back Survey (ACBS) is an in-depth asthma survey developed and funded by the Air Pollution and Respiratory Health Branch (APRHB) in the National Center for Environmental Health (NCEH). It is conducted with Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System Survey (BRFSS) respondents who report an asthma diagnosis.
Asthma surveillance data at the state level includes adult and child asthma prevalence from the Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS) and in-depth state and local asthma data through implementation of the BRFSS Asthma Call-back Survey (ACBS).
The ACBS was piloted in 3 states in 2005 and has been conducted each year since. A majority of states participate in the ACBS each year.
The 2006 through 2012 ACBS data, documentation, and prevalence tables are now available through the links below.
