Subject: DATASPEAK 2001 SPRING SERIES
The Maternal and Child Health Information Resource Center is pleased to
announce its DataSpeak 2001 Spring series:
Using Survey and Market Research to Tailor Pregnancy Prevention Efforts to
Thursday, February 8, 2001, 2:00-3:00 p.m.
During this program, survey and market research experts Dr. Robert Blum of
the University of Minnesota and Todd Cunningham of Music Television (MTV),
which does extensive market research on its target audience, will share data
on the attitudes and beliefs of the under-15 set about sexual health and
behavior. We will also discuss how this information can help to guide
pregnancy prevention efforts targeting the "tween" population.
Implications of the New Federal Approach to Classifying Race/Ethnicity
Tuesday, March 5, 2001, 2:00-3:00 p.m.
A common language for the collection and analysis of data on race and
ethnicity is essential to understanding relationships between these
characteristics and health status. In October 1997, the Federal government
adopted new standards for the classification of Federal data on race and
ethnicity; these standards were used in the 2000 Census and must be adopted
nationally by January 1, 2003. This DataSpeak, featuring National Center
for Health Statistics researchers Jacqueline Wilson Lucas, Dr. Brady
Hamilton, and Dr. Elizabeth Arias, will discuss the new standards and their
implications for health data and research, in particular the coding and
analysis of infant birth and death records.
Trends in Twin Birth Outcomes and Prenatal Care Utilization
Tuesday, April 24, 2001, 2:00-3:00 p.m.
Multiple births account for an increasing percentage of all low-birthweight
infants, preterm births, and infant mortality in the United States. In this
DataSpeak, Dr. Michael Kogan of the Maternal and Child Health Bureau will
present the findings of a recently published study exploring trends in twin
birth outcomes and prenatal care utilization. Dr. Pierre Buekens of the
University of North Carolina School of Public Health will also discuss the
implications of these findings for public health practice.
International Perspectives on Youth Violence
Tuesday, June 26, 2001, 2:00-3:00 p.m.
This program will compare trends in youth violence across different
countries. In particular, Dr. Mary Overpeck of the Maternal and Child Health
Bureau and other researchers will contrast injury mortality to nonfatal
injury and violence-related behavior. The mortality data are based on death
certificate data from several countries participating in the International
Collaborative Effort on Injury Statistics. The injury and behavioral data
are from the WHO study of Health Behaviors in School Children which is
co-sponsored by the Maternal and Child Health Bureau, Office of Data and
