Is it possible to suggest additional maternal and infant health data sets that could augment the data available on PeriStats?


The March of Dimes Perinatal Data Center has established criteria for the data it includes on PeriStats. The data must be important to the field of maternal and infant health; it must be reliable and have a reliable data collection methodology; and it should be available for most geographic regions of the United States. Finally, the Perinatal Data Center must be able to efficiently acquire and maintain data updates. The Center has established a standard data format for submitting data that facilitates the data updating process. To learn more about submitting data to PeriStats, or if you would like to set up an initial meeting to discuss a proposal, please contact the Perinatal Data Center at [email protected].
