Reported Health and Health-Influencing Behaviors Among Urban American Indians and Alaska Natives An Analysis of Data Collected by the Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System


This is the first report using BRFSS that focuses on American Indians and Alaska Natives (AIAN) living in counties served by the network of 34 Title V urban Indian health organizations. It shows a number of areas where AIAN living in these urban areas are not doing as well as the general population. Many of the reported disparities will come as no surprise to those working in urban AIAN health, and this report will serve to reinforce the importance of work already being done. 40 p.
