CDC discontinued the Pediatric and Pregnancy Nutrition Surveillance Systems (PedNSS and PNSS) at the end of 2012. These program-based surveillance systems monitored the nutritional status of low-income infants, children, and women in federally funded maternal and child health programs. The most recent annual national PedNSS and PNSS data tables available on this website are for calendar year 2011.

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 over 8 million children from birth to age 5. PNSS data represent approximately 1.3 million 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 objectives for the United States.
