Title: Evaluation of Adolescent Pregnancy Prevention Approaches—First Follow-up Data Collection.
OMB No.: ICRAS: 0970-0360.
Description: The Administration for Children and Families (ACE), U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), is proposing a data collection activity as part of the Evaluation of Adolescent Pregnancy Prevention Approaches (PPA). PPA is a random assignment evaluation designed to result in rigorous evidence on effective ways to reduce teen pregnancy. The evaluation will document and test a range of pregnancy prevention approaches in up to eight program demonstration sites. The findings of the evaluation will be of interest to the general public, to policy makers, and to organizations interested in teen pregnancy prevention.
This request for comment follows on a 60-Day Federal Register Public Comment Request Notice, published on Monday, July 12, 2010, pp. 39695-39696, with the document identifier of OS-0990-New.
This proposed information collection activity focuses on collecting follow-up data from a self-administered questionnaire which will be analyzed to determine program effects. Through a survey instrument, respondents will be asked to answer questions about demographics and risk and protective factors related to teen pregnancy.
Respondents: The data will be collected through private, self-administered questionnaires completed by study participants, i.e. adolescents assigned to a select school or community teen pregnancy prevention program or to a control group. Surveys will be distributed and collected by trained professional staff.Start Printed Page 17655
