Missouri Child Health Assessment Program Survey (MoCHAPS)
The Missouri Child Assessment Program Survey (MoCHAPS) is a program developed by Missouri in 2007, to provide a better understanding of the health of very young children in the state.
MoCHAPS provides statewide estimates of important health indicators for mothers and their two-year-olds. MoCHAPS collects data through a survey mailed to mothers who responded to the Pregnancy Risk Assessment Monitoring System (the PRAMS survey) two years earlier.
By responding to the MoCHAPS survey, you can help other Missouri moms have healthy children. The information is used to help understand current issues of maternal and child health and identify new areas that need attention. MoCHAPS data also helps doctors and nurses improve care and helps the state make better use of health resources.
