Alaska Childhood Understanding Behaviors Survey (CUBS)


CUBS stands for the Childhood Understanding Behaviors Survey and is a three-year follow-up to the Alaska Pregnancy Risk Assessment Monitoring System (PRAMS). PRAMS sends a survey to approximately one of every six mothers of newborns in Alaska. CUBS attempts follow-up with all mothers living in Alaska who completed PRAMS and whose infant was living with them at that time. The purpose of CUBS is to collect information about health, behaviors, and experiences of young children and families in Alaska. 

CUBS data for 2012-2017 are available within the Custom Query module of Alaska IBIS, the State of Alaska Department of Health and Social Services’ Indicator-Based Information System for Public Health. Access the CUBS Query Module to access the CUBS Query Module and CUBS Data Source Description to access the CUBS Data Source Description in AK-IBIS. CUBS data for 2018 are available upon request to the Program Coordinator.
