Abstract: This follow-up to the NATIONAL MATERNAL AND INFANT HEALTH SURVEY, 1988 (NMIHS) (ICPSR 9730) consists of three components that provide information on early childhood morbidity and health. The Live Birth Survey (Part 1) obtained data on national health issues affecting children, such as child development, effects of low birth weight, childhood injury, child care, pediatric care, health insurance coverage, child safety, and acute and chronic childhood illnesses. For the Medical Provider Survey (Part 12), respondents to the Live Birth Survey were asked to provide the names of all medical providers and hospitals where their children were diagnosed, treated, and/or admitted. Each health care provider was asked to supply information on its organization, the child's health status and history, and each visit or hospitalization. The Fetal and Infant Death Survey (Part 21) interviewed women who were identified through the 1988 NMIHS as having lost a fetus or an infant during the study period. These respondents were reinterviewed to gather information about their health and about any pregnancies since their loss in 1988. The 1991 follow-up data can be merged with data from the 1988 NMIHS, which was designed to explore factors that cause negative pregnancy outcomes.
