If Called, Take the New Jersey Behavioral Risk Factor Survey!

The New Jersey Behavioral Risk Factor Survey collects data on health-related behaviors, chronic health conditions, and the use of preventive services.

If your phone number is randomly selected, your caller ID will show “New Jersey Department of Health.” They will ask you questions about your health and health care. All answers are confidential.
