Not Living a Healthy Lifestyle

Wyoming adults reporting smoking, no leisure time activity, or not being at a healthy weight. The Wyoming Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS) is an ongoing statewide telephone survey of adults age 18 and older. The purpose of the survey is to gather information on the prevalence of health behaviors and factors which are known to contribute to or increase the risk of chronic disease, acute illness, injury, disability and premature death. Wyoming is one of 50 states and several territories funded and supported through the National Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to conduct BRFSS annually. Currently Wyoming obtains just over 5,000 completed surveys per year.

Understanding the color Range

Each Health Indicator includes five-color range indexes. The color range index compares all counties in the state that have the same indicator in the same timeframe. It then calculates where the selected county falls in that range and displays the color that best reflects how the county is doing in comparison to the other counties in the filtered group. The range displays the highest and lowest county values within the state that have the same indicator for the same measurement period.

Current county values will be compared to State and National values if they are available.

Green and red arrows indicate that the county value is better or worse than the state or national value. The arrows will change directions and colors based on which end of the range is positive.
This icon simply means that the county value is equal to the state or national value.
Some indicators display blue, which means the data is not meant for health-status comparison, but is intended simply to provide information.
If history data is available the trend icon will point up or down based on its relationship to the last county value.
