I. Background

The National Youth Anti-Drug Media Campaign is a component within the ONDCP that is partnering with the Advertising Council to create a public service campaign that will generate awareness and involvement in local community anti-drug coalitions that mobilize communities to engage in drug prevention measures. To assist the development of the public service campaign, ONDCP proposes to obtain information to sample the awareness, attitudes and willingness of adults 18 years of age and older in order to participate in community anti-drug coalitions. The information will be used to establish a baseline for measuring changes in attitudes and awareness as a result of the public service campaign, and provide data for formative and qualitative evaluation activities. It will assess the public's exposure to and recall of advertising (within a donated media model), and measure change in attitudes about drug prevention and community anti-drug coalitions.

II. Special Issues for Comment

The agency has particular interest in comments on the following issues:

Whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information will have practical utility; the accuracy of the agency's estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information; methods to enhance quality, utility and clarity of the information to be collected; and means to minimize the burden of the collection of information on respondents, including the use of automated collection techniques.
