National Youth Tobacco Survey (OMB No.: 0920-0621)—Reinstatement with Change—National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (NCCDPHP), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
Background and Brief Description
The purpose of this request is to reinstate OMB clearance of the National Youth Tobacco Survey, a national school-based study to be conducted in 2006. NCCDPHP wants to continue a biennial survey among middle and senior high school students attending regular public, private, and Catholic schools in grades 6-12. This survey was previously funded by the American Legacy Foundation in 1999, 2000, and 2002. The survey was funded by CDC in 2004. The survey covers the following tobacco-related topics: The prevalence of use of cigarettes, smokeless tobacco, cigars, pipe, bidis, and kreteks; knowledge and attitudes; media and advertising; minors' access and enforcement; school curriculum; environmental tobacco smoke exposure; and cessation. Tobacco use, a major preventable cause of morbidity and mortality in the U.S., is one of the 28 focus areas in Healthy People 2010. Within the Healthy People 2010 focus area of tobacco use, the National Youth Tobacco Survey provides data relevant to 6 health objectives. The survey also provides data to monitor one of the 10 leading health indicators for Healthy People 2010 that addresses tobacco use. In addition, the National Youth Tobacco Survey can identify racial and ethnic disparities in tobacco-related topics listed above.
The National Youth Tobacco Survey is the most comprehensive source of nationally representative data regarding high school students and tobacco. Moreover, the National Youth Tobacco Survey is the only source of such national data for middle school students (grades 6-8). The data have significant implications for policy and program development for school and community health programs nationwide. There is no other cost to respondents other than their time. The total annual burden hours is 18,643. Start Printed Page 69569
