  • Special Cancer Behavioral Risk Factor Survey: 2008 (published April 2010)
    The Special Cancer Behavioral Risk Factor Survey (SCBRFS) is an ongoing surveillance designed to measure progress towards achieving several priorities of the Michigan Cancer Consortium (MCC). The first baseline SCBRFS was conducted in 2001-2002. The SCBRFS was repeated in 2004, 2006, and 2008. Results from subsequent surveys can be compared against baseline data in order to evaluate the progress in cancer-related behaviors and knowledge within the Michigan adult population. The Michigan Department of Community Health Cancer Prevention and Control Section provides the funding for conducting the SCBRFS. The survey was designed and coordinated by evaluation staff at the Michigan Public Health Institute, and data collection was performed by the Office of Survey Research of the Institute for Public Policy and Social Research at Michigan State University in East Lansing, MI.
