The Pediatric Nutrition Surveillance System (PedNSS) and the Pregnancy Surveillance System (PNSS) are program-based surveillance systems that monitor the nutritional status of low-income infants, children, and women in federally funded maternal and child health programs.

PedNSS data represent more than 7 million children from birth to age 5. PNSS data represent approximately 750,000 pregnant and postpartum women. These surveillance systems provide data that describe prevalence and trends of nutrition, health, and behavioral indicators for mothers and children.

Surveillance data available at this site include national data tables with contributor-specific data on health indicators. Data reports for individual contributors are not available at this site.

These surveillance data can be used for program planning, management, and evaluation; for the development of health and nutrition interventions; and to monitor progress toward the Healthy People 2010 objectives for the United States.
