There has been a lack of reliable national data on the number of pregnant women using drugs and the number of newborns affected by such use.
The major reasons for this lack have been inadequate sampling and data collection procedures and the lack of a risk assessment perspective in analysis.
This paper corrects for these inadequacies.
Data from 1979 through 1990 from the National Hospital Discharge Survey, an annual survey by the National Center for Health Statistics, were analyzed.
