Evaluation of State Nutrition and Physical Activity Programs to Prevent Obesity and Other Chronic Diseases—Revision—National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (NCCDHP), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
Background and Brief Description
The “State Nutrition and Physical Activity Programs to Prevent Obesity and Other Chronic Diseases” project was established by CDC to prevent and control obesity and other chronic diseases by supporting States in the development and implementation of nutrition and physical activity interventions, particularly through population-based strategies such as policy-level changes, environmental supports and the social marketing process. The goal of the programs in this project is to attain population-based behavior change such as increased physical activity and better dietary habits; this leads to a reduction in the prevalence of obesity, and ultimately to a reduction in the prevalence of chronic diseases. The evaluation questions for “State Nutrition and Physical Activity Programs to Prevent Obesity and Other Chronic Diseases” have been designed to focus on the recipient activities as outlined in the original funding announcement:
- Capacity building
- Monitoring the burden of obesity
Within each of these areas, the plan identifies specific evaluation questions that have been chosen for study. The evaluation questions are asked of the funded states via a web-based data collection system supported by an electronic database every 6 months during the funding cycle. The project will continue to be conducted over a 3-year period.
There are no costs to respondents except their time to participate in the survey.
|Respondents||Number of respondents||Number responses per respondent||Average burden per response (in hrs.)||Total burden (in hrs.)|
