Priority Area:

Data and Evaluation

The Data and Evaluation team is composed of statisticians, researchers and other professionals with expertise in the principles of data collection, data management, and data analysis as they apply to examination of data on Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) and other types of infant death. Team members review methods by which infant death data are collected and reported and seek to find ways to improve upon those systems. They also disseminate SIDS/ID facts and statistics to the public and to professionals in the field. The team has plans to assemble a national database of information on SIDS/ID support programs throughout the United States, which will provide basic information on the risk reduction efforts, bereavement support services, and other activities of those organizations."

bulletFollow this link (pdf file, 22 kb) to download a table of statistical and data sources in maternal and infant health. The table includes resources from federal and state agencies and from non-profit organizations. It contains links directly to the Web sites of those organizations and for each one briefly lists featured information that is specific to SIDS/ID and general infant health. While the list of organizations/agencies provided is by no means exhaustive, it does provide a starting point from which to seek out further information about such topics as infant sleep position, birth rates, prenatal care, etc. Check back regularly as this table will be updated periodically with new information.
