Data Details

  • Source Maryland DHMH Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS) (www.marylandbrfss.org)
    Numerator Maryland adults who reported that they had one person they think of as their personal doctor or healthcare provider.
    Denominator Maryland adults age 18 and over
    Reporting Threshold (*) 50 or relative standard error >=30.0%
    Calculation Weighted (Numerator/Denominator)*100= Single-Year Calculation

    Other

    In 2011, the BRFSS weighting methodology was changed. This makes data collected from 2011 forward incomparable to data collected prior to 2011. The SHIP will resume including BRFSS data in 2013, where baselines from 2011 BRFSS data will be calculated.

    Data collected from survey respondents are adjusted to more accurately represent the Maryland population. This is called "weighted data." Learn more about weighted data here: http://www.marylandbrfss.org/pdf/BRFSS-Special-Report-9-12.pdf
