This report describes the prenatal exposure histories of 107,804 women to prescribed drugs other than vitamins, iron and other minerals. The data were obtained from Tennessee Medicaid pharmacy files linked to birth and fetal death certificates for 1983-1988. The utility of these data to other investigators in predicting power or estimating sample size for studies of drug exposure in pregnancy associated with adverse birth outcomes is discussed.
