One way of getting to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention page is through the redirect from CDC. That redirect is a big mistake. CDC also stands for other things, and it would be nice to have a list of links on CDC pointing to them all. How do we get back the CDC page for editing now that it redirects?
If you click on CDC, you'll notice that it redirects, but that on the redirected page it has a link to CDC on the top. Click on that. Or go to wiki.cgi?action=edit&id=CDC
(Thanks! Done it.)
There is some important items to fullfill :

And so on.
Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System is primarily a means of coordinating data collection with the individual states. It is, according to its website, the largest telephone survey system in the world. The BRFSS provides professional oversite of questionaire design methodology while the states indivudalize the survey to their needs (with BRFSS help) and carry out the actual surveys.

This page needs a major reformatting job. The entire "CDC Health Protection Goals" and "CDC Structure" sections are extremely difficult to read. The time line section should be expanded with a written history section. I already fixed some formatting issues, but the page still needs much more work. =D Jumping cheese Contact 00:56, 1 October 2006 (UTC)
It needs more than that. The article from the first paragraph is a whopping POV commercial for CDC. Not everyone finds everything CDC says and does "credible". FAR from it. Note the frequency of the CDC (self)Promotion in the "documentation" notes.--Buckboard 20:19, 10 May 2007 (UTC)
Who wrote this article?
Seemly Biased and Funny Tone?
What's with the salesman type of tone? It feels biased, and doesn't seem very neutral. Someone needs to fix it. From what I see, it sounds like a television infomercial more than an encyclopedic article. EditingFrenzy (talk) 01:19, 4 March 2008 (UTC)
This article needs a definite overhaul. For one, this is one of the first articles I've seen that isn't even in prose. For what is written, it's written like a brochure. And for a major orginization, it needs far more references. Someone get to work on it. Saget53 (talk) 01:29, 7 February 2008 (UTC)
- Ok, I've taken a stab at fixing some of the most obvious problems in the article. Hopefully it will inspire some other people to jump in and make some incremental improvements (e.g. adding wikilinks, finding sources). WatchAndObserve (talk) 20:55, 13 March 2008 (UTC)
I see someone has added a small section on the Coordinating Center restructuring of CDC. NIOSH has been kept out of that structure by Congressional mandate. How to address that? Pzavon (talk) 01:59, 26 March 2008 (UTC)
Perhaps some paragraphs explaining the controversy surrounding the proposed changes at CDC concerning NIOSH? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Craigoliver (talk • contribs) 01:30, 29 December 2008 (UTC)
The CDC tends not to fuck around, if i must say.

National Violent Death Reporting System (NVDRS)
Is there no article or article-section on Wikipedia about the CDC's National Violent Death Reporting System (NVDRS)? Am I missing something? Lightbreather (talk) 21:59, 17 April 2014 (UTC)
The location seems to be confusing people. Here's the deal, according to their website:
The physical location of the headquarters is 2900 Woodcock Boulevard, Atlanta, GA 30341.
The mailing address is 1600 Clifton Rd, Atlanta, GA 30333.
There's about seven miles between those two, and you cross the city limit as you travel. So it's "headquartered" outside of the city, even though it has an "in-city" mailing address. (For non-US folks, unincorporated areas always get the name of the nearest city in the mailing address, so that's not a reliable guide.) WhatamIdoing (talk) 19:39, 12 May 2014 (UTC)
