Pregnancy Risk Assessment Monitoring System (PRAMS)

Overview

North Carolina PRAMS, the Pregnancy Risk Assessment Monitoring System, is a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) initiative to reduce infant mortality and low birth weight. PRAMS collects data on maternal attitudes and experiences prior to, during and immediately after pregnancy for a sample of North Carolina women. The sample data are analyzed in a way that allows findings to be applied to all North Carolina women who have recently had a baby.

North Carolina PRAMS began in November 1997.
