Los Angeles Mommy and Baby (LAMB) Survey

Printer-friendly version
The Los Angeles Mommy and Baby Survey is a mail-in survey used to collect data on mothers and children in Los Angeles County. The survey is designed to obtain data on mothers who recently delivered a baby and enquires about events that happened before, during, and after their pregnancy. Its main objectives are to better understand the causes of poor birth outcomes in L.A. County, identify areas where help and resources are needed the most and improve the health and human services of future mothers and babies in the county.

The LAMB survey is conducted by the Maternal and Child and Adolescent Health Programs division of the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health. First 5 LA provides partial funding for the survey administration and analysis to increase our knowledge of new mothers in L.A. County and to improve the way we support that population.

The 2010 LAMB survey was in the field between April 2010 and April 2011. This is the third time the survey has been conducted. Other survey administrations were conducted in 2005 and 2007. Data and results from the 2010 LAMB survey should be available early 2012.

More LAMB results, including briefs and presentations, are available at http://www.publichealth.lacounty.gov/mch/LAMB/LAMBResults.html
