BRFSS Data Analysis Software


"Vitalnet BRFSS" is the Vitalnet module for analyzing and disseminating BRFSS (the CDC Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System) data. The software makes it much easier and more reliable (basically, an order of magnitude) to analyze BRFSS data (drinking, hypertension, obesity, smoking, diabetes, exercise, many more). Analyses taking hours or days with other methods, and subject to likely error, are easily and reliably done in minutes.

Vitalnet BRFSS handles all the intricate complexities of the BRFSS data. No need to use complex, confusing, expensive stats software (eg, SAS, SPSS, SUDAAN). No need to pore through confusing data dictionaries. No need to try understanding the complexities of BRFSS survey design and weights. Vitalnet BRFSS provides the needed combination of correctness, ease-of-use, and output capabilities.
