Health and Human Sciences Survey Research Laboratory

The Health and Human Sciences Survey Research Laboratory is a team of 50 to 75 surveyors who contact potential survey participants by phone and ask general questions about an individual's health-related risk factors.

Our experienced team has been providing data for the Illinois Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (IL-BRFSS) and related surveys. The IL-BRFSS is part of a federal health study for the Centers for Disease Control. The surveys allow state and county health departments to allocate resources to address current health trends. Results from those surveys have been factored into legislation and health-care resources' decisions, such as Illinois' indoor smoking ban and lower cost mammograms.
