Type: Notice

Agency: Department of Health and Human Services, Administration for Children and Families
The Office of Planning, Research, and Evaluation (OPRE), Administration for Children and Families (ACF), at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), proposes data collection activities as part of the Youth Empowerment IDEAS study. The goal of this project is to collect data that will inform educational topics and strategies for an optimal-health sexual risk avoidance (SRA) approach to reducing teen pregnancy and improving youth well-being. The project will identify strategies, skills, messages, and themes that are most likely to resonate with youth. The project will inform hypotheses on how to increase the effectiveness of sex education approaches so that more youth avoid the risks associated with teen sex, and teen pregnancy rates are reduced. To support these efforts, we seek OMB approval to collect survey information from a nationally-representative sample of youth and young adults age 14-24 and a nationally-representative sample of parents of teens ages 14-18.
