    Project: “Talk. They Hear You.” Campaign Evaluation: National Survey—NEW

    SAMHSA's Center for Substance Abuse Prevention (CSAP) is requesting approval from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for a new data collection, “Talk. They Hear You.” Campaign Evaluation: National Survey. This collection includes two instruments:

    1. Screener

    2. Survey Tool

    The national survey is part of a larger effort to evaluate the impact of the “Talk. They Hear You.” campaign. These evaluations will help determine the extent to which the campaign has been successful in educating parents and caregivers nationwide about effective methods for reducing underage drinking (UAD). The campaign is designed to educate and empower parents and caregivers to talk with children about alcohol. To prevent initiation of underage drinking, the campaign targets parents and caregivers of children aged 9-15, with the specific aims of:

    1. Increasing parent or caregiver awareness of and receptivity to campaign messages (knowledge);

    2. Increasing parent or caregiver awareness of underage drinking prevalence (knowledge);

    3. Increasing parent or caregiver disapproval of underage drinking (attitudes);

    4. Increasing parent or caregiver knowledge, skills, and confidence in how to talk to their children about, and prevent, UAD (attitudes); and

    5. Increasing parent or caregiver actions to prevent underage drinking by talking to their children about UAD (behaviors).

    The national survey will target parents in the base year in 2018, and then annually in the 4 option years following that, making this a repeat cross-sectional research study. The survey will be based on the survey originally approved for use in the 2016 impact evaluation, which was designed to quantify parent and caregiver awareness of the campaign and retention of campaign messages, and to determine whether parents and caregivers have used the campaign materials in talking to their children. SAMHSA will seek to conduct this research nationwide through online surveys. The survey will be accessible via an access link that will be disseminated to respondents via email. Respondents will be recruited to participate in this online survey from a Qualtrics© panel (which hosts more than 6 million active panelists), as was done for the survey pilot conducted in 2016. Researchers will conduct a quota-based sampling approach to maximize the representativeness of the sample and will be oversampling the Hispanic population. This will allow us to achieve a representative sample of parents of middle-school-aged children in the United States across notable socioeconomic and demographic variables of interest to the study. This approach will also allow us to oversample minority populations, such as Hispanics, as necessary in order to achieve the diversity needed to yield a comprehensive set of opinions, experiences, and feedback of the “Talk. They Hear You.” campaign materials and products.Start Printed Page 28006
