PRAMS Update

CDC is pleased to announce expansion of the Pregnancy Risk Assessment Monitoring System (PRAMS) and the release of new PRAMS data.
PRAMS Expands to 11 New Sites
As of May 2016, PRAMS is funded in 51 sites and covers 83% of all live births in the United States. Sites now include 47 states, New York City, Washington, DC, Puerto Rico, and Great Plains Tribal Chairman’s Health Board.
PRAMS Releases 2013 Data
Researchers can request the most recent year of data by visiting https://www.cdc.gov/prams/researchers.htm.
PRAMS was developed in 1987 to help reduce infant morbidity and mortality by providing data that were not available elsewhere about pregnancy and the first few months after birth. It is part of CDC’S Safe Motherhood and Infant Health Initiative.
PRAMS data can:
  • Be used to identify groups of women and infants at high risk for health problems;
  • Provide information for state health officials to improve the health of mothers and infants;
  • Allow states and CDC to monitor changes in maternal and child health indicators such as breastfeeding, smoking and drinking during pregnancy, and infant sleep position; and
  • Address emerging health issues of particular concern to pregnant women, such as awareness and risk reduction behaviors related to Zika virus infection.
