Details About PRAMS Data
Researchers may request Ohio PRAMS data for birth/survey years 2000 through 2012. Please keep in mind that due to the complex design of the survey, specialized statistical software, such as SUDAAN, is required for analysis. For guidance about how to specify the PRAMS sample design using statistical software, please click here to go to CDC's page on this topic.
