Oregon PRAMS (Pregnancy Risk Assessment Monitoring System)
PRAMS logo

Oregon PRAMS, the Pregnancy Risk Assessment Monitoring System, is a project of the Oregon Health Authority Public Health Division with support from the national Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). PRAMS collects data on maternal attitudes and experiences prior to, during, and immediately after pregnancy for a sample of Oregon women. The sample data are analyzed in a way that allows findings to be applied to all Oregon women who have recently had a baby.

Oregon PRAMS-2 Survey

In January 2006, we began reinterviewing Oregon PRAMS respondents when their baby was 2 years old. That survey is called PRAMS-2. It includes questions on such topics as well child care, child nutrition, social support, maternal physical activity and multivitamin use, childcare and screen time. The results are available for 2004 - 2011 births.
