    Article - En anglais

    The Behavioral Risk Factor Survey (BRFS) is a telephone interview used widely by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) in conjunction with state health departments to measure prevalences and time trends for health-related behaviors.

    We assessed the reliability of those parts of the BRFS related to cardiovascular disease (smoking, diet, obesity, exercice, and hypertension) and demographics by readministering the BRFS in July and August of 1989 to 145 randomly selected subjects between 10 and 21 days fallowing completion of an initial interview.
