Data: CDC PRAMS 2011


The attached dataset comes from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention’s Pregnancy Risk Assessment Monitoring System. This program has been surveying women on a state-by-state basis before, during, and after pregnancy in order to identify risk factors in mothers and infants since 1987.

This particular spreadsheet contains data for 2011, and the statistics offer some areas of focus when addressing maternal and infant health such as tobacco use, sleeping position, the presence of HIV or AIDs, and many other factors.

Unfortunately, Texas did not report for this year, but it’s beneficial to know these resources exist. We are also able to use the data here as a reference point to see how Texas stacks up against other states.
