Findings from the Pregnancy Risk Assessment Monitoring System (PRAMS), Hollie Clark MPH, Tanya Williams MPH, LaTreace Harris MPH, Brian Morrow MA, Norma Harris PhD
Overview Description of PRAMS Present results for PRAMS states on selected indicators –2005 prevalence estimates –Trends ( )
What is PRAMS? Ongoing, population-based, state-based surveillance of women delivering live infants Self-reported data on maternal behaviors and experiences before, during, and after pregnancy Initiated in 1987 in 5 states and Washington, DC Currently operates in 37 states, New York City and the South Dakota tribal-state collaborative project
Objectives of PRAMS To collect and analyze high quality population-based data To translate data into useable information To increase state capacity
PRAMS Methodology Standardized data collection protocol Sample of women having a recent live birth Mailed questionnaire Telephone follow-up for non-responders
States Participating in PRAMS, 2007 WY WISDT PA TN MO VA DE MA Included in analysis Excluded from analysis
Data Analysis Analyzed data for 7 indicators 2005 prevalence estimates by state Trend data from for those states & indicators available for entire time period
Multivitamin Use HP 2010: 16-16a Increase the proportion of non-pregnant women who consume at least 400 μg of folic acid each day to 80% PRAMS: In the month before you got pregnant with your new baby, how many times a week did you take a multivitamin? −‘every day of the week’

Prenatal Care During the 1 st trimester HP 2010: 16-6a Increase the proportion of pregnant women who receive early prenatal care beginning in the first trimester of pregnancy to 90 percent of live births PRAMS : How many weeks or months pregnant were you when you had your first visit for prenatal care? − _____ weeks or _____ months
Prevalence of Entry into Prenatal Care During the First Trimester, PRAMS 2005 Range: AR NY 86.7HP 2010 Goal: 90%

Prevalence of Healthy Full-term Infants who are put to Sleep on their Backs, PRAMS and Arkansas. Significant increases were observed for Washington, Maine, Colorado, Alaska, Nebraska, Hawaii, Illinois, New Mexico, North Carolina, West Virginia, Oklahoma, Florida, and Arkansas.
Summary Many states met HP 2010 goals for: –Abstinence from alcohol (12 states) –Placing infants to sleep on their backs (13 states)
Summary (Cont.) No states met HP 2010 goals for: –Multivitamin use –Intended pregnancy 3 states had a prevalence of at least 65% –Physical abuse prior to pregnancy –Entry into prenatal care during the first trimester 4 states had a prevalence of at least 85% –Abstinence from smoking 2 states had a prevalence of 95%
Limitations Minor differences exist between HP 2010 objectives and some PRAMS indicators –Folic acid consumption –Abstinence from smoking and from alcohol States without 6 consecutive years of data excluded from trend analyses
Conclusions Value of state-based data –Progress toward Healthy People objectives and Title V performance measures –Program planning –Policy decisions
CDC PRAMS Reports PRAMS Surveillance Reports –Available since 1995 –Current year prevalence data for over 20 indicators –Trend data by state MMWR Surveillance Summaries –Reports from 1997, 1999, 2000, 2004, 2006, 2007 Reports available on the PRAMS website
