Summary 

The STEPS Noncommunicable Disease Risk Factors Survey uses a survey methodology developed by the World Health Organization (WHO) to help countries establish noncommunicable disease surveillance systems. Some surveys are conducted at the country level and others at the subnational level. These provide data on socioeconomic risk factors and metabolic, nutritional, and lifestyle risk factors. Details may differ from country to country and from year to year. 

This subnational survey, conducted in Pohnpei, Micronesia, included smoking, alcohol consumption, Kava consumption, diet, physical activity, medical history, physical measurements, medical history, and biochemical measurements.

Only reports are currently available online. No microdata have been released publicly.
