Prevention Research Centers Longitudinal Evaluation Report 2009 – 2014
The Prevention Research Centers (PRC) Longitudinal Evaluation Report covers the September 30, 2009 – September 29, 2014 funding cycle. To create the Longitudinal Evaluation Report, the PRC Program used data collected from all 37 PRCs. Data were collected using three methods: web surveys, telephone interviews, and document reviews. The documents reviewed included research project applications, grant award letters, and official PRC Program budget documents.
In addition to these three collection methods, each PRC gave a list of research products for the calendar years 2010-2014. The PRC Program reviewed and checked publication data for books, book chapters, and journal articles using online lists of publications (e.g., PubMed Central).
The PRC research products for this period included the following:
- 165 books and book chapters
- 3,387 journal articles
- 3,277 conference presentations
Prevention Research Centers are able to get extra funding (i.e., leverage) through special interest projects and other-funded research projects. Extra funding and support can increase the kind and type of research the PRCs can do. The mean dollars leveraged increased from $5.57 at the beginning to $8.60 at the end of the funding cycle in 2014.
