Pregnancy Risk Assessment Monitoring System (PRAMS)
The Best Source of Data for Mothers and Babies.
PRAMS survey responses supplement data from birth certificates and are used to help plan and assess maternal and child health programs on a state level. Because PRAMS data are population–based, findings from data analyses can be generalized to the entire state´s population of women who gave birth.
