This publication presents information for each of the 60 research projects active under the support of the Maternal and Child Health Research Program (MCHRP) in Fiscal Years 1990 and 1991. The variety of research topics and objectives pursued by the 60 investigations mirrors the broad mandate of the MCHRP as well as the eclectic and multidisciplinary approaches historically used by the Maternal and Child Health Bureau. The projects focus on applied research in the areas of medicine, health services, psychology, and epidemiology. The publication is divided into two sections--new and continuation projects. Information for each research project generally includes the grantee, investigator, project period, costs, statement of the problem, research questions or hypotheses, study design and methods, population description and sampling plan, analysis plan, and (for new projects only) pre-award evaluation information. A grantee index and project index conclude the document. (JDD)
