Query Builder for Utah's Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS) Combined Landline and Cell Query Module - Ideal, Overweight/Obese

Overview

The BRFSS Survey data in this IBIS-Q query module is collected and maintained by the Utah Department of Health, Center for Health Data and Informatics. The BRFSS collects uniform, state-specific data on preventive health practices and risk behaviors that are linked to chronic diseases, injuries, and preventable infectious diseases in the adult population.

"Utah Small Areas" refers to a set of geographic areas in Utah with population sizes ranging from approximately 15,000 to 60,000 persons. These geographic areas are especially useful for doing public health assessment in communities within Utah's urban counties. Utah Small Area population numbers are not available for race, ethnicity, or single year of age.

As of November 22, 2017, the IBIS system has been updated to use a new algorithm which uses both ZIP and county information to designate Local Health District (LHD) and Utah Small Area. Queries by LHD or Small Area may yield different numbers than in prior months. For more information go to [http://ibis.health.utah.gov/pdf/resource/Algorithm.pdf]
