Maternal and Child Health Epidemiology is pleased to announce the second edition of the Alaska Maternal and Child Health (MCH) Data Book. The 2004 edition of the Alaska Maternal and Child Health (MCH) Data Book presents detailed information from the Alaska Pregnancy Risk Assessment Monitoring System (PRAMS). The PRAMS edition complements the 2003 Alaska Maternal and Child Health Data Book, which presented comprehensive information on important health status indicators and emerging issues in Maternal and Child Health.

The Alaska MCH Data Book 2004 features PRAMS data collected in 1991 through 2001. We are very excited to present, for the first time, not only prevalence trends, but regional prevalence and detailed demographic information for each indicator. The narrative sections provide the user with background information, comparison data, and accurate interpretations of PRAMS survey findings. We hope that our unique format will serve as an easy-to-use reference for people seeking statistics and epidemiological information for use in program planning and decision-making.
