Description Utah has participated in the Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS) since it began in 1984 and when only 14 other states participated. This report examines trends for selected BRFSS measures over 11 years from 1989 to 1999. The Utah statewide rates are compared to the rates for states bordering Utah (the Region) and the rates for all states and territories (the U.S.) for each year that data were available. The Region and the U.S. include Utah. The report also examines differences between various demographic groups in Utah by combining four years of Utah data from 1996-1999. Data from four years were combined to increase the precision of the subgroupspecific rates. However, for some groups the sample sizes remained small and apparently large differences were not statistically significant; that is, even those large differences could have occurred due to chance alone.
