26                The default report has been changed to the statewide estimate for the most recent three years of data.
27                This change was implemented to better align with our other data sources. Users can
28                still view all years of data and data by county by clicking on the Modify Query Definition,
29                selecting all available years (Step 2: TIME PERIOD), setting the geography to county (Step 3: GEOGRAPHIC
30                AREA), selecting geography as the display by (category) (Step 8), and clicking submit.

101                <h3>New BRFSS dimensions added in 2019</h3> 
102
103                A new geographic dimension was added in 2019 to allow users to view reports by Primary Care Service Area.
104                <br/><br/>
105                There are also several new dimensions available to allow users to view reports by other health behaviors or conditions:
106                        <ul>
107                                <li>Diabetes</li>
108                                <li>Obese (BMI greater than or equal to 30)</li>
109                                <li>Cancer (ever diagnosed with any kind of cancer)</li>
110                                <li>Current Cigarette Smoker</li>
111                                <li>Meets Physical Activity Recommendations (aerobic and strengthening)</li>
112                        </ul>
113                <br/><br/>
114                               
115                <h2 id="2018-brfss">2018 BRFSS</h2>
116                <br/>
117                <h3>Changes in the race/ethnicity dimensions.</h3> In 2018, the Hawai'i Department of Health (DOH)
118                revised how it collects race/ethnicity information in the Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance
119                System (BRFSS). The new methodology better aligns with national data collection standards and
120                complies with the race/ethnicity algorithm used by the Office of Health Status Monitoring in DOH.
121                <br/><br/>
122                There are now two versions of DOH race/ethnicity: (2011+, new) and (2011-2017).
123                        <ul>
124                                <li>DOH race/ethnicity (2011+, new) includes data from 2011-2017 which have been harmonized
125                                with 2018 data to be consistent across survey years and instruments. We will be supporting
126                                this dimension going forward.</li>
127                                <li>DOH race/ethnicity (2011-2017) is the old version which you have seen in the past. Because
128                                of the changes, the 2018 BRFSS data is not available for the DOH race/ethnicity (2011-2017)
129                                dimension.</li>
130                        </ul>
131                        <br/>
132                For a limited time, both versions of DOH race/ethnicity will be available, to give users an opportunity
133                to compare and assess the impact of this change on indicators that are of interest to them. Please
134                plan on transitioning to the new (2011+, new) race/ethnicity dimension going forward, as this is the
135                new standard for DOH.
136                        <ul>
137                                <li>Program race/ethnicity (2011+, new) has also changed and includes data from 2011 forward.
138                                This dimension has been streamlined into 15 categories, down from 40 categories, based on changes
139                                in the data collection instrument.</li>
140                                <li>In 2018, the Department of Health (DOH) revised how it collects race/ethnicity information
141                                in the Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS). The new methodology better aligns with
142                                national data collection standards and complies with the race/ethnicity algorithm used by the
143                                Office of Health Status Monitoring in DOH.</li>
144                        </ul>
145
146                <h3>Poverty Level (2014+) dimension.</h3> This new socioeconomic indicator dimension is based on multiple
147                questions including the number of people living in the household and the annual household income from
148                all sources. These numbers are compared to the annual US Department of Health and Human Services Poverty
149                Guidelines to approximate the respondent's Federal Poverty Level percentage. This data is available
150                from 2014 to the most recent year. Queries that request an indicator by this dimension will only include
151                data from 2014 forward.
152
153                <h3>Sexual and Gender Minority (2014+) dimension.</h3> This new demographic indicator dimension is based
154                on sexual orientation and transgender identity. Adults who identify their sexual orientation as gay,
155                lesbian, bisexual or something else, or who identify as transgender are coded as "yes" all others are
156                coded as "no".  This data is available from 2014 to the most recent year. Queries that request an
157                indicator by this dimension will only include data from 2014 forward.
158
159                <h3>Transgender (2014+) dimension.</h3> This new demographic indicator dimension is based on transgender
160                identity. Adults who identify as transgender (male-to-female, female-to-male or gender non-conforming)
161                are coded as "yes" all others are coded as "no".  This data is available from 2014 to the most recent
162                year. Queries that request an indicator by this dimension will only include data from 2014 forward.

167                <br/>
168                The underlying SAS code was modified to more accurately generate the asymmetric confidence intervals
169                that occur when point prevalences approach 0 and 1.  This code change will impact all BRFSS reports.
170                As a result, there may be slight differences in confidence intervals and relative standard
171                errors, and hence, reportability, from previous years. Please check your query results carefully
172                and re-run reports as necessary. HI-IBIS runs on SAS version 9.4 (SAS Institute Inc: Cary, NC).

177                <br/>
178                <h2>Race/Ethnicity Data</h2>
179                Respondents are asked the following question to ascertain their race/ethnicity:
180                        <ul>
181                                <li>Which one or more of the following would you say is your race?</li>
182                        </ul>
183                <br/>
184                This question is used to create the Race/ Ethnicity classifications. In HHDW, the most granular level is the program race/ethnicity (PRG)
185                which rolls up into the DOH standard race/ethnicity (DOH), which rolls up into Census race reporting categories (Census). The table below illustrates
186                how the data is aggregated.

294                <h2>Note about indicator/dimension titles:</h2>
295                The BRFSS is constantly changing. HHDW staff carefully review the BRFSS survey instrument each year
296                to assess how changes in the survey instrument impact indicators and dimensions within the HI-IBIS
297                system. When an indicator or dimension is not available across all years in HI-IBIS, this
298                information will be added to the name. For example, there are two versions of Adults with at least one
299                disability (2016+) and (2013-2016). In 2016, a question about auditory disability was added to the
300                BRFSS so a new indicator was created to capture any disability including hearing issues--Adults with
301                at least one disability (2016+). Poverty level (2014+) is available from 2014 forward only based on
302                when questions about household members for cell phone respondents were added to the survey. A query
303                with data by Poverty level (2014+) dimension will only contain data from 2014+ regardless of the years
304                of data for the base indicator. If you have questions, check the Question Wording in the Data Notes
305                section of the report.
