The PRAMS questionnaire is comprised of three parts: (1) CDC core questions, (2) standard questions available for the state to choose, and (3) state-added questions. The core component addresses such topics as maternal pre-pregnancy status, prenatal care, source of payment for prenatal care and delivery, smoking and alcohol consumption, family planning, breastfeeding, and complications of pregnancy. Florida’s standard questions include Medicaid, maternal health problems, fertility treatments, HIV testing, folic acid, co-sleeping, insurance for delivery, breastfeeding, birth control, and infections/diseases. State-added questions include depression and sick-baby care. The survey is revised every 3-4 years. Florida initiated the survey with phase II questionnaire in 1993.
