Maternal and Child Health Data


Since 1984, the Cooperative has collected perinatal data in South Jersey to identify emerging issues, unmet needs and trends. Each year, this data is analyzed and the findings presented in our annual publication Achievement: Regional Collaborative Database. Among the issues being monitored are Birth Weight, Maternal Age, Entry to Prenatal Care, Plurality, Neonatal and Fetal Mortality, Breastfeeding Rates and Cesarean Birth Rate.


An excellent source of local perinatal data, NJSHAD (State Health Assessment Data) is a query module for birth data derived from the New Jersey Birth Certificate database. Click here to access system. 

NJ PRAMS (Pregnancy Risk Assessment Monitoring System) is a joint project of the New Jersey Department of Health and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Information from PRAMS is used to help plan better health programs for New Jersey mothers and infants.

Maintained by the New Jersey Department of Health, the Maternal Data Center provides recent maternal data, information about state services and resources and recommended readings. Click here to access Center.
