Pinellas County Behavioral Risk Factor Survey Results: Working Hard To Tackle Obesity!

Back in 2010, a whopping 90.6% of adults surveyed in Pinellas County, Florida said they had not met the daily recommendation for fruit and vegetable consumption in the last 30 days.  Read about this and many other interesting survey results in the CPPW Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS) Facts Sheets located on the Florida Department of Health Website.  The questionnaire used in the survey is also listed.

The Pinellas County Communities Putting Prevention to Work (CPPW) Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System is a telephone survey of randomly selected adults, aged 18 years or older, living in Pinellas County, Florida. 3,101 adults completed the survey in 2010.

More than 63% of Pinellas County adults are overweight or obese, which is higher than the state average of overweight or obese adults. Pinellas has been hard at work to turn some of these data survey results around since the CPPW program began. Sixteen partner organizations have come together to tackle obesity through implementation of policy changes in local governments, school and workplaces.
