Proposed Project National Youth Physical Activity and Nutrition Study (NYPANS)—New— National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (NCCDPHP), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Background and Brief Description The prevalence of obesity among adolescents aged 12 to 19 more than tripled in the past 20 years, increasing from 5% in 1980 to 17.6% in 2006. Obese young people are more likely than children of normal weight to become overweight or obese adults, and are therefore more at risk for associated adult health problems, including heart disease, type 2 diabetes, stroke, several PO 00000 Frm 00052 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 types of cancer, and osteoarthritis. However, healthy lifestyle habits, including healthy eating and physical activity, can lower the risk of becoming obese and developing related diseases. CDC proposes to conduct a study involving a nationally representative sample of students attending public and private schools in grades 9–12. CDC will collect information from students in Spring 2010. The primary information collection will include a paper-andpencil survey, a standardized protocol to measure height and weight, and telephone interviews to elicit 24-hour dietary recalls among a subsample of respondents. Information supporting the study also will be collected from school administrators and teachers. The study will: (1) Provide nationally representative data on behaviors and behavioral determinants related to physical activity and nutrition; (2) provide data to help improve the clarity and strengthen the validity of questions on the Youth Risk Behavior Survey (OMB No. 0920–0493, exp. 11/30/2011), which has been conducted biennially since 1991; and (3) improve understanding of the associations among behaviors and behavioral determinants related to physical activity and nutrition, and their association with body mass index. Study results will be used to develop more effective interventions for stemming the increase of obesity among adolescents, and will have implications for policy and program development for obesity prevention programs. There are no costs to respondents except their time. The total estimated burden hours are 7,781. E:\FR\FM\19JNN1.SGM 19JNN1
