Evaluation of a Media Campaign on Fatherhood

A third wave in our population-based evaluation of a statewide media campaign designed to promote responsible fatherhood in Virginia and increase awareness of the impacts of father-absence on children. After a second phase of media distribution of messages from the campaign CSR conducted 600 interviews with a fresh statewide sample in May 1997. The final report shows that the media campaign had a significant impact on attitudes about fathers and knowledge of some key facts but the second phase was less effective.
