Summary
The Puerto Rican Maternal and Infant Health Study (PRMIHS) is a cross-sectional study designed to provide information on the determinants of poor infant health among Puerto Ricans. The dataset features personal interview data from 2,763 mothers of Puerto Rican infants sampled from the 1994 and 1995 birth and infant death records of six United States vital statistics reporting areas (Connecticut, Florida, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York City, Pennsylvania) and the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico. Mothers were contacted to participate in a Computer Assisted Personal Interview (CAPI) using the address information provided in the birth and infant death records. Respondent mothers were asked to recount their sexual history and use of contraception, age at conception, prenatal care and nutrition, substance abuse, and overall health before and during pregnancy. Details were also collected regarding migration history, family composition, partner involvement, social support structures, and receipt of any public financial assistance for food, housing, and/or medical care. Information regarding infant health and well-being was also gathered, and included respondents' reporting of recurrent health issues, required medical treatments, immunizations, and any accidents or sustained injuries. Mothers were also asked to confirm attainment of a number of infant developmental milestones, including sitting, crawling, standing, waving, and vocalization, as well as several other behaviors and abilities. Demographic information for mothers includes age, education, occupation, income, marital status, race and ethnic identity, language, and religious preference
