The Selected Metropolitan/Micropolitan Area Risk Trends (SMART) project uses the Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS), a telephone survey conducted by the CDC, to analyze the data of selected metropolitan and micropolitan statistical areas. BRFSS data is used to identify emerging health problems, establish and track health objectives, and develop and evaluate public health policies and programs in these selected areas. This website provides access to the SMART BRFSS databases and graphical representations of the data. Users may choose to find information on all health risk data for an MMSA by year and category or create quick-view charts which show state, MMSA, and county data for a limited set of health risk factors, including smoking, obesity, and diabetes.
