Data Updates

The Perinatal Data Center works diligently to provide data that is the most up-to-date on all topics. We are constantly updating our data points throughout the year as soon as the new data is released. Datasets that we use include the CDC Pregnancy Risk Assessment Monitoring System (PRAMS), the National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) Natality Data, Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS), Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services (SAMHSA), U.S. Census Bureau, and the CDC Sexually Transmitted Disease Surveillance. The report found here will detail the latest available year that the data was released, as well as the last time the data was updated on this website. For any questions, please email
