Racial and Ethnic Approaches to Community Health across the US Risk Factor Survey
Alternate Titles(s): REACH US Risk Factor Survey
The Racial and Ethnic Approaches to Community Health (REACH) program is a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) effort to eliminate ethnic and racial health disparities. The REACH US Risk Factor Survey was conducted annually between 2009 and 2013 in order to monitor progress and achievements in the REACH US program. Survey participants were recruited from 28 REACH US grantee communities to gather health-related information in areas where community health interventions were taking place.
Adults aged 18 years or older in the REACH communities completed surveys by phone, mail, or in-person. Communities surveyed were located in Arizona, California, Georgia, Hawaii, Illinois, Massachusetts, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Virginia, Washington, and West Virginia. Approximately 1,000 surveys were conducted in each of the 28 communities during each of the four years.
