BACKGROUND: In most states, the Pregnancy Risk Assessment Monitoring System (PRAMS) is the only source for state-specific, population-based data on the prevalence of unintended pregnancy among women having a live birth. These data can be used in a variety of ways to inform state policies and programs aimed at the prevention of unintended pregnancy. OBJECTIVES: This paper highlights the programmatic and policy development activities undertaken by three states in relation to unintended pregnancy as well as the role that PRAMS data played in those efforts. RESULTS: Georgia, Oklahoma, and Washington have used PRAMS data to gain support for program initiatives directed at unintended pregnancy, to promote policies aimed at either monitoring or reducing unintended pregnancy, and to acquire additional funds for related programs, such as family planning.
