The Pregnancy Nutrition Surveillance System (PNSS) is a public health surveillance system that describes the nutritional status of low-income pregnant, postpartum or nursing women enrolled in federally funded maternal and child health and nutrition programs. In Michigan PNSS, data is collected solely from WIC clients. Self-reported demographic, behavioral, and health information is collected at the local WIC agency and verified by a nurse, registered dietitian, nutritionist, or other health professional. Anthropomorphic measurements (height, weight, and birthweight), clinical nutritional indicators status (i.e. hematology measurements), and breastfeeding practices are also collected. Data is aggregated at the state level and submitted to the MI- PNSS and PedNSS Application for analysis.
