This site displays a prototype of a “Web 2.0” version of the daily Federal Register. It is not an official legal edition of the Federal Register, and does not replace the official print version or the official electronic version on GPO’s govinfo.gov.
The documents posted on this site are XML renditions of published Federal Register documents. Each document posted on the site includes a link to the corresponding official PDF file on govinfo.gov. This prototype edition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov will remain an unofficial informational resource until the Administrative Committee of the Federal Register (ACFR) issues a regulation granting it official legal status. For complete information about, and access to, our official publications and services, go to About the Federal Register on NARA's archives.gov.
The OFR/GPO partnership is committed to presenting accurate and reliable regulatory information on FederalRegister.gov with the objective of establishing the XML-based Federal Register as an ACFR-sanctioned publication in the future. While every effort has been made to ensure that the material on FederalRegister.gov is accurately displayed, consistent with the official SGML-based PDF version on govinfo.gov, those relying on it for legal research should verify their results against an official edition of the Federal Register. Until the ACFR grants it official status, the XML rendition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov does not provide legal notice to the public or judicial notice to the courts.

Process Evaluation of CDC's Youth Media Campaign—New—National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (NCCDPHP), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
Background: In FY 2001, Congress established the Youth Media Campaign at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Specifically, the House Appropriations language said, “The Committee believes that, if we are to have a positive impact on the future health of the American population, we must change the behaviors of our children and young adults by reaching them with important health messages.” CDC's response to this mandate was to design and implement a mass media campaign based on social marketing principles that is focused on increasing physical activity levels in children ages 9 to 13. The Campaign is based on principles that have been shown to enhance success, including: designing messages based on research; testing messages with the intended audiences; involving young people in all aspects of Campaign planning and implementation; and enlisting the involvement and support of parents and other influencers. Evaluation of the campaign is occurring through various process and outcome measures.
Part of the campaign strategy is to develop materials for influencers and stakeholders. Influencers include teachers, coaches, and youth-serving organizations. Stakeholders include community leaders, corporate partners, and non-governmental organizations. Campaign planners are interested in understanding how effective the Campaign is in delivering the supporting message of regular youth physical activity to these multiple groups. This understanding will facilitate any strategy changes that may be necessary to increase the effectiveness of tools and resources to facilitate sustainability of the campaign.
The Youth Media Campaign plans to conduct a process evaluation with convenience samples drawn from Campaign promotional requests, Campaign Web site/inquiries and listservs. This process evaluation will examine the implementation of Campaign strategies, promotions, and tools through community partners that directly work with youth and adult influencers. This process includes gathering information from influencers and stakeholders through: in-person and telephone interviews; mail surveys; focus groups; Internet online surveys; bounce-back Web surveys with users of Web site; and feedback forms included in promotional kits. Surveys will be administered beginning in the winter of 2005 to adult influencers, community stakeholders, and partners.
The overall purpose of this process evaluation is to determine the extent to which the VERB campaign was implemented as planned, the challenges that occurred, and solutions to specific challenges. Data collected will assist campaign planners in refining campaign strategies and in developing materials. Additionally, the process evaluation will examine to what extent partnerships were formed and the effectiveness of the partnership activities. There are no costs to the respondents.
