Evaluation of State Nutrition and Physical Activity Programs to Prevent Obesity and Other Chronic Diseases—Reinstatement—National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (NCCDHP), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
Background and Brief Description
In order to prevent and control obesity and other chronic diseases, CDC established state-based nutrition and physical activity programs to support 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 overall programmatic goal is to promote population-based behavior change, such as increased physical activity and better dietary habits, thus leading to a reduction in the prevalence of obesity, and ultimately to a reduction in the prevalence of chronic diseases. CDC funding for state nutrition and physical activity programs may be used for capacity building, collaboration, planning, monitoring the burden of obesity, intervention, and evaluation.
CDC has previously collected information to evaluate the State Nutrition and Physical Activity Programs to Prevent Obesity and Other Chronic Diseases (OMB no. 0920-0669, exp. date 01/31/2008). The evaluation was designed to focus on recipient activities as outlined in the original funding announcement.
CDC proposes to reinstate the information collection with minor changes to the data collection instrument, in response to recommendations from the respondents, CDC staff, and the evaluation contractor. Changes are designed to streamline and clarify questions and response options. The project will continue to be conducted over a 3-year period. Information will be collected twice per year via a web-based data collection system.
There are no costs to the respondents other than their time. The total estimated annualized burden hours are 672.
