Oregon 2002 -2005 BRFSS Data - Behavior Risk Survey Topics by County

Selected Topics by County 2002-2005

Age-adjusted Prevalence of Selected Chronic Diseases and Related Risk Factors Among Adults by County, Oregon 2002-2005

Tables were created using combined BRFSS survey results from 2002 through 2005. Two numbers are provided for each condition or disease: an unadjusted rate and an age-adjusted rate. Unadjusted rates, provided in separate tables, give a description of the absolute burden of a disease or risk factor for an individual county. Age-adjusted rates supplied in this table allow you to compare rates for a county to the State's rate. They adjust for differences that could result from a county’s population being, on average, older or younger than the State's. When comparing counties with Oregon or with each other, use these age-adjusted rates.

Data are adjusted to the 2000 U.S. Census Population.
