Alaska Maternal and Child Health Data Books
MCH Data Books provide Alaskan health care providers, public health program managers, and policy makers with detailed information on important maternal and child health status indicators. Alaska MCH Data Books are published annually by the MCH Epidemiology Unit. Beginning in 2003, and published every third year thereafter, the Data Book will feature a comprehensive look at maternal and child health indicators for Alaska. In interim years, Data Books will focus on specific MCH topics, presenting the findings of public health surveillance programs operated by the MCH Epidemiology Unit.
The MCH Epidemiology Unit would be pleased to present the Alaska Maternal and Child Health Data Book in a 15-minute presentation at your organization's next event. We also are available to make presentations on specialized topics in maternal and child health tailored to your agency's needs. Please contact our office to schedule a presentation.
If you use data from one of our data books in a publication or presentation, please tell us! Knowing which data in particular is used by readers helps to inform our decisions about indicators to include in future publications, and also can support our applications for grants that fund our surveillance activities.
