1 2004 Fannin County Health Survey Texas Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS)

2 BRFSS Survey of Fannin County: Introduction and Methods The data presented in this report were gathered from telephone interviews with residents of Fannin County using a questionnaire and survey methods modeled closely on the Texas Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS). BRFSS surveys, administered through a federal state partnership, pose questions relating to health status, personal health habits, and the use of preventive health services. The surveys adhere to the highest scientific standards and yield data that policymakers and public health professionals rely on to identify major health risks, design interventions, set performance goals, and measure progress toward those goals. The final Fannin county BRFSS dataset includes completed interviews with approximately 315 non-institutionalized adult residents. All interviews were conducted during May Interview subjects were selected in two stages. First, telephone numbers for the geographic region were randomly called until a household was identified. Second, after contacting a household, one household member age 18 years or older was randomly selected for the interview.

3 BRFSS Survey of Fannin County: Introduction and Methods Cont. Prior to analysis, the data were weighted to adjust for unequal probabilities of selection among individuals who live in households with different numbers of telephones and adults. The final data also were poststratified to account for unequal response rates among members of various demographic groups. Weights for the number of adults and telephones in a household were needed because we wanted to make statistically valid inferences about individuals, but we were sampling telephone numbers. Demographic poststratification was applied to make the final data more representative of Fannin county. The outcome of the weighting and poststratification process is that each record in the database represents a known number of individuals in the Fannin county population who share selected household and personal characteristics with the respondent. All statistical analyses included in this report were run on the weighted data using SUDAAN software and are reported with 90 % confidence intervals.

4 BRFSS Survey of Fannin County: Introduction and Methods Cont. Modern telephone survey methods have several advantages that make them a useful tool for health policy makers, including a substantial degree of quality control made possible by computer assisted telephone interviewing systems, their relatively low cost, and a high speed of data collection. The methods used for BRFSS have been evaluated by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and participating states for nearly 20 years. The content of survey questions, data collection procedures, and analytical techniques have been carefully developed and refined to improve data quality and reduce the potential for bias. However, BRFSS surveys are not without limitations. As with all telephone surveys, a small number of households without working phones are excluded from the sample. Moreover, BRFSS data are self-reported. Thus, respondents may have a tendency to under- report behaviors that are socially undesirable, unhealthy, or illegal while over-reporting desirable behaviors. Also, the accuracy of self-reported information often depends on the ability of respondents to fully recall past behaviors and health screening results.
