OMB No.: New collection. Description: The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) intends to collect data for the next National Incidence Study of Child Abuse and Neglect (NIS). This will be the fourth cycle of this periodic study. NIS–1, mandated under Public Law (Pub. L.) 93–247 (1974), was conducted in 1979 and 1980, and reported in 1981. NIS–2, mandated under (Pub. L.) 100– 294 and the Child Abuse, Domestic Violence, Adoption, and Family Services Act of 1992 (Pub. L.) 102–295, was conducted between 1993 and 1995, Frm 00066 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Average burden hours per response 1 1 1 6 6 6 53 180 53 Consideration will be given to comments and suggestions submitted within 60 days of this publication. PO 00000 Number of responses per respondent Total burden hours 318 1,080 318 and reported in 1996. NIS–4, mandated by the Keeping Children and Families Save Act of 2003 (Pub. L.) 108–36, will gather data in 2005 and 2006, and be reported in 2008. NIS is unique in that it goes beyond the abused and neglected children who come to the attention of the Child Protective Services (CPS) system. In contrast to the National Child Abuse and Neglect Data Systems (NCANDS), which rely solely on reported cases, the NIS design assumes that reported children represent only a portion of the children who actually are maltreated. NIS estimates the scope of the maltreated child population by combining information about reported cases with data on maltreated children identified by professionals (called ‘‘sentinels’’) who encounter them during the normal course of their work in a wide range of agencies in representative communities. Sentinels are asked to remain on the lookout for children whom they believe are maltreated during the study reference period and to provide information about these children. Children identified by sentinels and those whose alleged maltreatment is investigated by CPS during the same period are evaluated against standardized definitions, and only children who meet the study standards are used to develop the study estimates. The study estimates are couched in E:\FR\FM\21MRN1.SGM 21MRN1
