Proposed Project: Evaluation of the CSAP Underage Drinking Prevention Public Education Campaign—New—SAMHSA's Center for Substance Abuse Prevention (CSAP) is launching the Underage Drinking Prevention Public Education Campaign, which is a public education campaign designed to educate 9-13 year old children about the harms of alcohol use and to support parents as they monitor and participate in their children's activities. The ultimate goal of the initiative is to reduce underage drinking among young people. Elements of the campaign include media messages (such as public service announcements on television and radio) and education of children and their adult caregivers through materials and community events.
To determine the likely effectiveness of the campaign, CSAP is planning to conduct an evaluation. The evaluation will determine whether the campaign can produce measurable change in communities that receive training and technical assistance on implementing the campaign, plus funds to customize materials for those communities. The evaluation will assess change in knowledge and attitudes among those exposed to the campaign. Four treatment and four comparison communities will be selected for study. Data for the evaluation will be collected through a baseline and follow-up telephone survey of adult-child dyads. The estimated annual burden hours are as follows:
|Data collection instrument||Number of respondents||Responses per respondent||Hours per response||Total annual burden (hrs.)|
|Baseline telephone survey of random sample of adult-child dyads||3,200||1||0.3||960|
|Follow-up telephone survey of random sample of adult-child dyads||3,200||1||0.3||960|
