Population Health Surveys & Data
Population health surveys are a significant part of the Health Department's work to monitor Vermonters’ health status and the contributors to health in our state. With these surveys, we provide high-quality reporting on a comprehensive collection of health statistics. From data on pregnancy risk factors to adult smoking habits – and many health indicators in between – we collect, analyze and report the information necessary for data-driven public health policy and decision-making.
- Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS)
- Pregnancy Risk Assessment Monitoring System (PRAMS)
