The Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS) collects telephone interview data on behaviors for the leading causes of premature death and disability.
Its validity has never been adequately studied.
The authors replicated BRFSS methodology to validate self-reported cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk factors.
Nine-hundred and eleven subjects from three upstate New York counties were interviewed between 1/89 and 5/90.
Interviewees were offered physical examinations and laboratory testing for CVD risk factors; 282 men and 344 women participated.
The authors studied validity by comparing objectively measured to self-reported CVD risk factors.
