This fall, I received a [randomly selected] call to my "cell phone only household" from (they acknowledged during the phone call, they were "a private contractor") my New Hampshire Behavioral Risk Factor..Survey (BRFSS), asking if I would like to participate in the BRFSS. I asked if they were including any ACE questions in this 2014 NH BRFSS. They asked what ACEs are/were. I attempted to try and explain it, and the person I was talking to said they'd never heard of the U.S.

Re: State ACE survey reports

That's correct, Bob. At present, it's up to the states to include their own ACEs module in the BRFSS. Also, the people who ask the questions aren't necessarily very knowledgeable about the subject they're asking about. They follow a script to obtain mostly yes-no answers. Each year state health departments decides which modules to include in BRFSS, and they contract with people to decide whom to call (to get a representative sample of the population), and to do the phone calling. The people...

Hi Jane, After reading the recent [12/2016] story-which the recent blog note included a link to, I happened to scroll down the list of states, stopped at Maine, and noted the bottom item of a list ["DATA COLLECTION: BRFSS"] in the upper left portion of the Maine page: (--"Changes in Weighting between 2010 and 2011 mean data cannot be combined or compared").

South Carolina has published on their data from 2014. We're in the midst of updating our briefs with aggregate 2014-2015 data in the next couple of weeks. We are collecting additional ACE questions (similar to Wisconsin) on social factors and neglect in 2016 through the BRFSS. Briefs: https://scchildren.org/prevent...ces/research_briefs/

A few short years ago, a colleague and I dreamed about an ACE's Movement that would raise awareness and inspire hope for change and healing. It is so encouraging to see the growing momentum to introduce new policy to address the issue. This will happen and indeed, we can change the world ~ one conversation, one policy at a time.

Thanks, Naomi! It's amazing how far it's come in a short time....and if we're persistent and lucky, we can accelerate it!

How can I find out the total number of people screened for ACE exposure? In the 2012 ACEs connection blog post by Felitti it was over 440,000 - but it has to be significantly more now, and I need a citation for it. If anyone can point me in the right direction I would appreciate it. I can't find updated statistics on the CDC website. Thanks -

Georgia ACEs Data Released

Deborah Chosewood ·
We have data! In 2016, the Georgia Department of Public Health, with funding provided by the Georgia Division of Family and Children Services' Prevention and Community Support Section, added the Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE) module to their annual Behavioral Risk Factors Surveillance System (BRFSS). The preliminary summary of the results of that data collection have been released in the Georgia Data Summary report. An additional full-length report is still in development, but the...
