1999 Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS) Interviewer and Supervisor Survey

The data gathered from this mail survey of BRFSS supervisors and interviewers were used to address methodological research questions about how organizational environment, interviewing approach, and interviewers' background and experience affect non-response in the BRFSS. SRU staff designed an interviewer and supervisor questionnaire, selected a sample of states conducting BRFSS, fielded the mail survey, and entered the completed questionnaires. SRU methodologists analyzed the data and prepared papers and conference presentations based on study findings.
