Data Notes

Users select choices from three drop down menus to search for data. The menus are state, year and topic. Users can then select the specific question from PRAMS they are interested in, and the data table or graph will appear. Users can then compare that question to another state or to another year to generate a new data table or graph. The data source for CPONDER is PRAMS. The data is from every year between 2000 and 2008, and data is available at the state and national level. However, states must have participated in PRAMS to be part of CPONDER. Not every state, and not every year for every state, is available.
