Oregon PRAMS (Pregnancy Risk Assessment Monitoring System)

Oregon PRAMS

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.

 Did you receive a PRAMS Survey or a phone call about PRAMS?

PRAMS participants are chosen randomly, by computer. If you are picked, you will receive a survey by mail, including instructions, more information about the project, and a postage-paid envelope for returning your survey. You may also choose to answer by phone, if you prefer. (Currently, we do not have a web survey option.) You may answer the survey in English or Spanish. Questions? Please call 1-800-723-3638.

About the ECHO Survey (Early Childhood Health in Oregon)


Oregon ECHO, Early Childhood Health in Oregon, is a project of the Oregon Health Authority's Maternal and Child Health Section. ECHO collects data on the attitudes and experiences of mothers and three-year-olds. We follow up with mothers who answered the PRAMS survey to learn more about the health and well-being of preschoolers and their families. The data are analyzed in a way that allows findings to be applied to all Oregon mothers of these young children.


The CDC PRAMS website contains more information about PRAMS, methodology, data, and projects.
