What is the March of Dimes Perinatal Data Center?


The Perinatal Data Center is located at the March of Dimes National Office in White Plains, NY. The Perinatal Data Center's role is to acquire and analyze maternal and infant health data, and to interpret this information for the March of Dimes and for health professionals, research groups and organizations external to the March of Dimes.

The mission of the March of Dimes is to improve infant health by preventing birth defects, premature birth and infant mortality. The goal of the Perinatal Data Center is to clearly present perinatal data, so that professionals focused on issues related to maternal and infant health can make more informed decisions to ultimately improve infant health. To fulfill this objective, the Perinatal Data Center staff collaborate and provide guidance on epidemiologic and statistic analyses and grants, and present analytical findings at national conferences and in peer-reviewed journals.
