About the Data

Description of the data source, numerator, denominator, survey questions, and other relevant details about the national estimate.

Data Source: 
California's Maternal and Infant Health Assessment (MIHA); California Department of Public Health (CDPH)
Pregnancy Risk Assessment Monitoring System (PRAMS); Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (CDC/NCCDPHP)
Changed Since the Healthy People 2020 Launch: 
Yes
Measure: 
percent
Baseline (Year): 
42.4 (2011)
Target: 
38.2
Target-Setting Method: 
10 percent improvement
Target-Setting Method Justification: 
Given the current prevalence of postpartum relapse of smoking, a 10% improvement over baseline as a target setting method is both realistic and aspirational. In addition, given that we are half way through the decade for Healthy People 2020, setting a target at a level of 10% improvement over baseline is meaningful.
Numerator: 

Number of women with a recent live birth who quit smoking during pregnancy and resumed smoking after delivery

Denominator: 

Number of women with a recent live birth who quit smoking during pregnancy
