Abstract
The Alaska Department of Health and Social Services implemented the Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS) in 1990 in cooperation with the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The system gathers information about the health-related lifestyle choices of Alaskan adults related to leading causes of death such as heart disease, cancer and injury. The program is part of an ongoing national data collection system. Results are analyzed each year to improve our understanding of Alaskan health habits and to measure progress toward national and state health objectives. This report summarizes survey findings from 1991 to 1996 and compares the results to selected national health objectives presented in the Healthy People 2000 publication.
