Pandemic Influenza Questions

In an effort to better understand the public's knowledge, perception, level of preparedness and degree of susceptibility in the event of a pandemic influenza outbreak, the Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS) administered a 10 question Pandemic Influenza module in 45 states for the months of January and February 2009. Information obtained from these questions helps CDC to provide local, state, and federal public health officials with vital information used to guide decision making and planning.
