Proposed Project: Evaluation of the Parents Speak-Up National Campaign: Youth Survey OMB No. 0990-New—Office of Adolescent Pregnancy Program.

Abstract: The Evaluation of the Parents Speak-Up National Campaign (PSUNC): Youth Survey is designed to evaluate the Parents Speak-Up National Campaign, a campaign designed to encourage parents to talk with their children about sexual activity. The campaign includes paid and public service announcement (PSA)-type spots, as well as a Web site, As the campaign aims to increase parent-child communication about sex, the purpose of this information collection is to measure youth self-reported communication with parents, their related attitudes and beliefs about sex, and determine whether their parents' exposure to PSUNC affects the youth reports of communication. Parents of the youth in this study are participating in an OMB-approved, randomized controlled study of the behavioral effects of PSUNC message exposure.

This collection is follow-up of youth aged 13-15 whose parents participated in the parent efficacy study for the campaign. We are requesting a 2 year clearance.
