Oregon PRAMS is a project of the Oregon Health Authority Public Health Division with support from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). PRAMS stands for Pregnancy Risk Assessment Monitoring System.
We collect information about people's experiences before, during, and immediately after pregnancy. Our goal is to improve the health and wellbeing of Oregon families.

Each month, PRAMS participants are chosen randomly by computer from birth records. If you are picked, you will receive a survey by mail with more information about the project and a postage-paid envelope for returning your survey. (Starting with 2023 births, we'll have a web survey option, too.) A few weeks later, we may call you to do the survey over the phone. You are free to do the survey or not, or to skip any questions you don't want to answer. Please call
1-800-723-3638 to ask questions, change your address, receive a new survey if yours is lost or damaged, or to request to do the survey by phone.
PRAMS Surveys: What do we ask?
Surveys are organized by birth year and CDC Phase. Surveys in one phase ask the same questions. Extra questions may be added on topics of interest.
