THIS IS AN EXAMPLE of how to write question NO. #2#2: Problem Statement (example based on the teenage drinking example on the CDC website)
- Although fewer teens are drinking and driving, this risky behavior is still a major public health problem in this community. Drinking and driving among U.S. teens decreased by 50% from 1991-2012. However, high school teens often still drive after drinking—about 2.4 million times per month. In 2010, 1 in 5 teen drivers involved in fatal crashes had some alcohol in their systems. Of those drivers, most of them—about 4 in 5—had blood alcohol concentrations higher than the legal limit for adults. National, state, and local data show that risk factors for teen drinking and driving include lower socioeconomic status (which is associated with not having access to a car), lower driver education levels, and less access to alcohol.
