Description of the data source, numerator, denominator, survey questions, and other relevant details about the national estimate.
A state is considered to conduct statewide health surveillance of caregivers if the state's Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS) includes the following question: People may provide regular care or assistance to a friend or family member who has a health problem, long-term illness, or disability. During the past month, did you provide any such care or assistance to a friend or family member?
States with indicated surveillance are determined through periodic assessment of the BRFSS questions by staff at the National Center for Birth Defects and Developmental Disabilities, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
