Annotation: The main research questions addressed by this project were as follows: (1) Are adolescents meeting the Healthy People 2000 nutrition health status and risk reduction objectives? Which groups of adolescents are at greatest risk for not meeting these objectives and need to be targeted for intervention? (2) What are the direct and indirect overall contributions of socioenvironmental, personal, and behavioral factors to the explained variance in nutritional intake and weight gain status? Are similar associations found among adolescents from different socioeconomic status (SES), age, gender, and ethnic groups? (3) Which specific socioenvironmental, personal, and behavioral measures are associated with the targeted behaviors outlined in the Healthy People 2000 nutrition health status and risk reduction objectives? Are similar associations found among adolescents from different SES, grade, gender, and ethnic groups? [Funded by the Maternal and Child Health Bureau]
