Chronic diseases, such as arthritis, asthma, cancer, diabetes, heart disease, and stroke are the leading causes of death and disability in the United States. Although chronic diseases are among the most common and costly health problems, they are also among the most preventable. Eating nutritious foods, being physically active, and living tobacco free can prevent the development of chronic diseases later in life and help those currently living with chronic diseases to manage their conditions. The Oregon Public Health Division reports chronic disease information to help guide Oregon’s efforts to control or prevent chronic diseases and reduce disparities among populations most affected by these diseases.

The chronic diseases data listed below include the most recent information available for adults, youth, and counties in Oregon.

Oregon Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System Race Oversample 2010-2011

In 2010 and 2011, the Public Health Division conducted a survey among Oregon adults called the Oregon Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS) Race Oversample 2010-2011. The survey was about population health. The goal was to collect information from a large enough number to respondents to be able to analyze certain chronic diseases and health risk factors by race and ethnicity.
 
The sampling methods for the Oregon BRFSS Race Oversample 2010-2011 data set were different from similar data sets collected in previous years. The data set included cell phone respondents and used a different method to weight the data. Therefore, the point estimates from this data set should not be compared to any prior estimates from BRFSS surveys for racial and ethnic groups in Oregon.
