Wisconsin Behavioral Risk Factor Survey: Other Reports Featuring BRFS Data

This page provides links to a sampling of reports from other programs and collaborations that present Behavioral Risk Factor Survey data for Wisconsin.

  • The Influence of Adverse Childhood Experiences on the Health of Wisconsin Citizens in Adulthood (PDF, 979 KB). This 2015 report presents new results on this topic. (See original report below.)
  • Wisconsin Nutrition, Physical Activity, and Obesity State Plan (PDF, 2.8 MB). This 2013 publication was developed around two main concepts: a systems perspective for preventing obesity, and effective, setting-specific strategies to address obesity. One strategy is to engage partners for collecting the surveillance data to monitor and report progress in improving nutrition, increasing physical activity, and reducing the prevalence of overweight and obesity.
  • Adverse Childhood Experiences in Wisconsin: Findings from the 2010 Behavioral Risk Factor Survey (PDF, 33.7 MB). This report, published by the Wisconsin's Children's Trust Fund, provides information about the prevalence of adverse early-life experiences and negative household environmental factors experienced by Wisconsin residents before age 18. Data from the BRFS Adverse Childhood Experiences module are examined, and associations between adverse experiences and adult risk behaviors and health outcomes are noted. The report offers recommendations based on the findings.
  • The Burden of Asthma in Wisconsin, 2010 (PDF, 7.9 MB) . This report, produced by the Bureau of Environmental and Occupational Health in the Division of Public Health, is a comprehensive study of asthma in the Wisconsin population. It incorporates data from both the BRFS annual survey and the BRFS Asthma Callback Survey, a follow-up survey conducted in Wisconsin since 2006.
  • The Epidemic of Chronic Disease in Wisconsin: Why It Matters to the Economy and What You Can Do to Help (PDF, 1.8 MB) . This report, a product of collaboration by several Division of Public Health programs including BRFS, provides a look at chronic diseases, and their associated risk factors and costs, in an integrated format. It identifies risk factors common to multiple chronic diseases, and suggests that reduction of such risk factors can have far-reaching benefits for both population health and the state-level economy.
