Information Collection Request Title: Positive Adolescent Futures (PAF) Study.
Abstract: The Office of Adolescent Health (OAH), U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is requesting approval by OMB on a revised data collection. The Positive Adolescent Futures (PAF) Study will provide information about program design, implementation, and impacts through a rigorous assessment of program impacts and implementation of two programs designed to support expectant and parenting teens. These programs are located in Houston, Texas and throughout the state of California. The revision to this information collection request includes the 12-month follow-up survey instrument related to the impact study. The collected data from this instrument will provide a detailed understanding of the program impacts within the two study sites about one year after youth are enrolled in the study. Plus, have first access to the programming offered by each site. Clearance is requested for three years.
Need and Proposed Use of the Information: The data will serve two main purposes. First, the data will be used to determine program effectiveness by comparing outcomes on repeat pregnancies, sexual risk behaviors, health and well-being, and parenting behaviors between treatment (program) and control youth. Second, the data will be used to understand whether the programs are more effective for some youth than others. The findings from these analyses of program impacts will be of interest to the general public, to policymakers, and to organizations interested in supporting expectant and parenting teens.
