Proposed Project: Teen Pregnancy Prevention Replication Evaluation Study: Follow-up Data Collection—OMB No. OS-0990-NEW—Office of Adolescent Health in collaboration with the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Planning and Evaluation.
Abstract: The Office of Adolescent Health (OAH), Office of the Assistant Secretary for Health (OASH), U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), is overseeing and coordinating adolescent pregnancy prevention evaluation efforts as part of the Teen Pregnancy Prevention Initiative. OAH is working collaboratively with the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Planning and Evaluation (ASPE), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and the Administration for Children and Families (ACF) on adolescent pregnancy prevention evaluation activities.
OAH will jointly oversee with ASPE the Teen Pregnancy Prevention Replication Evaluation Study (TPP Replication Study). The TPP Replication Study will be a random assignment evaluation which will determine the extent to which evidence-based program models that have been shown to be effective in an earlier trial, demonstrate effects on adolescent sexual risk behavior and teenage pregnancy when they are replicated in similar and in different settings and for different populations.
OAH and ASPE are proposing follow-up data collection activity as part of the TPP Replication Evaluation. Respondents will be asked to answer carefully selected questions about risk and protective factors related to teen pregnancy, intermediate outcomes, and behavioral outcomes. Information from this data collection will be used to perform meaningful analysis to determine significant program effects.
