The PNSS collects prenatal and postpartum information about these women and outcome information about their infants.

Data on birthweight, short stature, underweight, overweight, anemia and breastfeeding are collected for children who visit public health clinics for routine care and nutrition services, including education and supplemental food. Data are collected at the clinic level, and then aggregated at the state level and submitted to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) for analysis.
