Employee Wellness Plan Data Sources

Effective Employee Wellness Programs include the use of data sources in support of Employee Wellness Plan planning, implementation, and evaluation. Data sources can be used to complete a community needs assessment, develop realistic Employee Wellness Plan goals and objectives, and gain Senior Management support.

Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC): Data and statistics

  • Data and statistics are available by topic (i.e., asthma, injuries, MRSA).
  • Data access tools are available to customize data tables and query datasets
    (i.e., Healthy People DATA2010, tobacco use-Attributable Mortality, Morbidity,
    and Economic Costs).
  • Nationwide survey data is available (i.e., National Health and Nutrition
    Examination Survey (NHANES)).

CDC Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS)

  • BRFSS is the world’s largest, ongoing telephone health survey system.
    BRFSS has been tracking health conditions and risk behaviors in the US yearly
    since 1984.
  • Chronic Disease Indicators are divided into seven categories: physical activity
    and nutrition, tobacco and alcohol use, cancer, cardiovascular disease, diabetes,
    overarching conditions, and other disease and risk factors.
  • Prevalence data is also available (i.e., weight classification by Body Mass
    Index and age).
