Questionnaires – PRAMS
MN PRAMS questionnaire for mothers
What´s in the questionnaire?
The PRAMS questionnaire consists of a core component used by all PRAMS states and a state–specific component. The core portion of the questionnaire includes questions about the following:
- Attitudes and feelings about the most recent pregnancy
- Content and source of prenatal care
- Maternal alcohol and tobacco consumption
- Physical abuse before and during pregnancy
- Pregnancy–related morbidity
- Infant health care
- Contraceptive use
- Mother´s knowledge of pregnancy–related health issues, such as adverse effects of tobacco and alcohol; benefits of folic acid; and risks of HIV
The state specific questions on the questionnaire are chosen from a pretested list of standard questions developed by the CDC or by states on their own. As a result, each state´s PRAMS questionnaire is unique. The Minnesota PRAMS Questionnaire Phase 6, 2008 – 2011 (PDF: 81 KB/17 pages) is the most current source of PRAMS data for Minnesota.
The PRAMS survey questionnaire is revised periodically (Phase 4, 5, 6 and 7), and some items are changed with each new phase.
