    • Description:
      PRAMS is the Pregnancy Risk Assessment Monitoring System. It is a joint research project between the state departments of health and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Division of Reproductive Health.

      The PRAMS Analytic Research File contains a standard set of variables enumerated in the PRAMS Research Dataset Codebook.

      The PRAMS data set includes five categories of the following variables:

      Birth Certificate Variables: Selected variables from the birth certificate file are included in the data set; information on maternal and infant demographics are primarily from this source.

      Questionnaire Variables: This is the information collected from the PRAMS survey.

      Analytic Variables: These are precalculated variables that combine different variables in the data set, often those that are restricted (e.g., body mass index [BMI] created by combining variables on maternal weight and height).

      Operational Variables: These variables come from the data collection process (e.g., mode the questionnaire was answered by mail or phone).

      Weighting Variables: These variables account for the PRAMS survey design and the statistical weighting of the data. These variables are needed to analyze PRAMS data by using complex sample software.
