Pregnancy Risk Assessment Monitoring System (PRAMS) Health Indicator Selection

The Pregnancy Risk Assessment and Monitoring Survey (PRAMS) collects state-specific, population-based data on maternal attitudes and experiences before, during, and shortly after pregnancy. PRAMS is an annual survey that is conducted throughout the year. It is conducted by the Hawaii State Department of Health, Family Health Services Division in collaboration with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

PRAMS uses a stratified systematic sample design. Women from some groups are sampled at a higher rate to ensure adequate data are available in smaller but higher risk populations. PRAMS uses the state birth certificate file to select adult women who have had a recent live birth to participate in the survey. Selected women are first contacted by mail. If there is no response to repeated mailings, women are contacted and interviewed by telephone. Participant responses are linked to the infant's birth certificate for additional information. Data collection procedures and instruments are standardized to allow comparisons between states. Results are weighted to represent all women with a recent birth in Hawaii. In Hawaii, weighted estimates are available at the state and county level. Additional information about PRAMS and results from other participating states can be found here.
