Data NotesAge-adjusted to U.S. 2000 standard population.
Old Methodology: Previous BRFSS methodology used "post-stratification" which was used to weight data by age, gender, and local health district (LHD).
New Methodology: To reduce bias and more accurately represent population data, the BRFSS has changed survey methodology. It began conducting surveys by cellular phone in addition to landline phones. It also adopted "iterative proportional fitting" (raking) as its weighting method. With raking, education, race/ethnicity, marital status, home ownership/renter, and telephone source are included in the weighting procedure.
Due to changes in sampling and weighting methodology, data from the new methodology represents a new baseline, and comparisons from new to old methodology data are not appropriate.

DefinitionThe percentage of men aged 40 and above who reported having a prostate-specific antigen (PSA) test in the last five years or who reported ever having had a PSA test.
How We Calculated the Rates
|Numerator:||The number of men aged 40 and above who reported having had a PSA test within the specified time period.|
|Denominator:||The total number of male survey respondents aged 40 or older excluding those who responded "don't know" or "refused" to the numerator question.|
