DATA

 
 

The first phase of the West Virginia Perinatal Wellness Study was to compile an exhaustive collection of data on perinatal health and family issues across the state. This included data collected routinely by medical professionals, DHHR, the Health Care Authority, social service programs and major insurance carriers.  Much of this data was disseminated as part of the West Virginia Perinatal Summit held in Charleston, WV on May 18.  You may access those proceedings and the data here. The data compilation also included new information gathered through the following surveys below, some of which are still open.
