Health Reports & Data

Pregnancy Risk Assessment Monitoring System

The Pregnancy Risk Assessment Monitoring System (PRAMS) is a surveillance project sponsored by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The PRAMS survey collects state-specific, population-based data on maternal attitudes and experiences before, during, and shortly after pregnancy. The Perinatal Health Services Section within the Department of Health’s (DOH) Maternal and Child Health Branch oversees the state’s PRAMS program.

The reports on this page include data through 2013. Please use the Hawaii Indicator-Based Information System (Hawaii-IBIS) to see the most recent PRAMS data and to perform your own custom queries!
