Performance Measure Reports
The Pediatric Nutrition Surveillance System (PedNSS) and the Pregnancy Nutrition Surveillance Systems (PNSS) are surveillance systems that monitor the nutritional status of low-income infants, children, and women in federally funded maternal and child health programs. PedNSS data represent children from birth to age 5 who are participating in the Nebraska WIC Program. PNSS data represent pregnant and postpartum women who are participating in the Nebraska WIC Program. These surveillance systems provide data that describe prevalence and trends of nutrition, health, and behavioral indicators for mother and children.
CDC discontinued PedNSS and PNSS reports following release of the 2011 reports, published in 2012.
These are results of recent surveys conducted.
