Access the Maternity Information Matrix (MIM) here: Explore the MIM or click on the Explore the MIM tab at the top of the page. Data collections and data items are organised in a table on this page.

'Jump to' links on the page let you move more quickly around the table by taking you to specific categories of data items.
 
Data collections feature as links in the orange ribbon spanning the top row of the table. Data collection overviews containing more information about each data collection can be accessed via the links in this row.
 
Data items feature as links in the leftmost column and are grouped into categories. More information about data items and the collections they are part of are available via the links associated with each data item.

Symbols in the body of the table indicate that the data item (listed in the column) appears in the collection (specified in the top row).
