GIS Data and Documentation

Click the links below to download the BRFSS GIS Maps data for analysis. These files contain data and documentation, and are available in Zip Archive File (ZIP) format. The zip format contains one or more files within it and is compressed to minimize the file's size. Use any zip utility to unzip these archives.

The zip files contain BRFSS data that is mapped for both the states and metropolitan/micropolitan statistical areas (MMSAs). In these data sets, the BRFSS data has been attached to shapefiles which can be viewed using different desktop GIS applications, for example, ArcGIS from ESRI. You can open the shapefiles in a desktop GIS application and generate your own maps using this data.

These data files are a subset of the BRFSS data intended for use with a GIS package only. Complete data sets and documentation for these data years are available in the Survey and Documentation section of the site.

To map selected BRFSS data, see the BRFSS Interactive Maps (GIS) application.

For more information on BRFSS Interactive Maps (GIS), see the BRFSS GIS FAQs .
