Your completed application will be reviewed by the Division of Public Health Data Governance Board. Upon approval, you will sign a Data Use Agreement granting you access to PRAMS data for your stated purpose.

Partner use of PRAMS Data
Since 2011, the Lifecourse Initiative for Healthy Families (LIHF) and the Wisconsin Partnership Program have provided support to Wisconsin PRAMS to enhance PRAMS data collection among non-Hispanic Black women in the counties where LIHF Collaborative work has been done (Kenosha, Milwaukee, Racine, and Rock Counties). The LIHF-PRAMS partnership to fund and use data from the non-Hispanic Black enhanced oversample has deepened the capacity of both the state and local LIHF communities to use PRAMS data for public health planning and community action to reduce disparities in birth outcomes. LIHF staff and partners have also used recent PRAMS data to report on various maternal and child health topics:
