Youth Risk Behavior Survey—(0920-0258)—Renewal—National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (NCCDPHP). The proposed project is the 2001 national school-based Youth Risk Behavior Survey. The purpose of this request is to renew OMB clearance to continue an ongoing biennial survey among high school students attending regular public, private, and Catholic schools in grades 9-12. The survey assesses priority heath risk behaviors related to the major preventable causes of mortality, morbidity, and social problems among both youth and adults in the U.S. OMB clearance for the 1999 survey expired January 2000 (OMB No. 0920-0258, expiration 01/00). Data on the health risk behaviors of adolescents is the focus of approximately 40 national health objectives in Healthy People 2010. The Youth Risk Behavior Survey provides data to measure at least 10 of these health objectives and 3 of the 10 Leading Health Indicators. In addition, the Youth Risk Behavior Survey can identify racial and ethnic disparities in health risk behaviors. No other national source of data measures as many of the 2010 objectives that address behaviors of adolescents. The data also will have significant implications for policy and program development for school health programs nationwide.
The total estimated cost to student respondents is $47,250, which is calculated in terms of their time spent in responding to the survey and is based on an assumed minimum wage of $5.25/hour for the 1999-2000 school year. The total estimated cost to school administrators is $5,882 which is calculated in terms of their time spent in recruitment and is based on an assumed average hourly rate of $34. Thus, the total costs to respondents, based on the costs of their time, are $53,132.
