    Title: Health Behaviors in School-Age Children--United States.
    Type of Information Collection Request: Extension.
    Need and Use of Information Collection: The goal of this research 
is to obtain data from a survey of adolescent health behavior conducted 
in the United States with a national probability sample of adolescents. 
This information will enable the improvement of health services and 
programs for youth. The study should provide needed information about 
adolescents nationally and will also enable international comparisons.
    This U.S. survey is linked to the broader Health Behaviors in 
School-Age Children (HBSC) study, in which surveys are conducted every 
four years among nationally representative samples of students at ages 
11, 13, and 15 years of age in 40 countries. The HBSC was conducted in 
the U.S. previously in 1997/1998, 2001/2002, and 2005/2006. Data from 
previous surveys have been used to identify adolescent health problem 
areas, develop programs to address these problems, and evaluate 
existing programs. The 2009/2010 U.S. survey will address a sample of 
health-related factors according to rigorous research protocols 
developed by the HBSC. The international HBSC survey requires at least 
1,536 youth in each age group and a total of 5,000 students. In the 
U.S., a nationally representative sample of children in grades 6 
through 10 will be surveyed and minority children will be over-sampled 
to permit comparisons across under-represented populations. The 
children will be students from approximately 386 schools; in order to 
assess health programs in those schools and how the school environment 
supports health behaviors, a school administrator from each school will 
be surveyed.
    Affected Public: School-age children.
