This is an annual, random telephone survey of adults which collects information about many heath conditions, including adults exercise and nutrition habits. This survey also collects information about adult Body Mass Index (BMI). West Virginia’s most recent BRFSS report can be found at http://www.wvdhhr.org/bph/oehp/hsc/default.htm  To see national BRFSS results, or to compare West Virginia to other states, the Centers for Disease Control provides a look-up site at http://www.cdc.gov/brfss/
