Proposed Collection: NEXT Generation Health Study, 0925-0610, Expiration Date 04/30/2016, EXTENSION, Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD), National Institutes of Health (NIH).
Need and Use of Information Collection: The goal of this research is to obtain data on health and health behaviors annually for seven years beginning in the 2009-2010 school-year from a national probability sample of adolescents. The transition from high school to post high school years is a critical period for changes in health risk behaviors. This information will enable the improvement of health services and programs for youth. The study will provide needed information about the health of U.S. adolescents and young adults and influences on their health.
The study has collected information on adolescent health behaviors and social and environmental contexts for these behaviors annually for six years beginning in the 2009-2010 school year. This study will collect this information in 2016, the last planned data collection. Self-report of health status, health behaviors, and health attitudes will be collected by online surveys.
OMB approval is requested for 3 years. There are no costs to respondents other than their time. The total estimated annualized burden hours are 1385.Start Printed Page 12745
