The revealed preference/contingent behavior survey component will be administered only to respondents who indicate that they participate in waterbased recreational activities that are potentially affected by changes in fish populations. This component will ask respondents about their recent recreational activities, and ask how many additional trips (if any) they would take to their most recently visited recreation site each year if fish populations and catch rates (for anglers) increased by a specified amount. It will also ask respondents whether they would choose to visit the site of their last recreational trip or a similar site with higher fish populations and catch rates that is further from their home. Survey subjects will be randomly selected from a representative national panel of respondents maintained by Knowledge Networks, an online survey company. Subjects will be asked to complete a web-based questionnaire. Participation in the survey is voluntary. EPA intends to administer the survey to a total of 4,400 persons, including 500 persons that will take part in an initial survey pilot. EPA chose a web-based survey format because it is the most cost-effective method available to conduct a large statistically-based survey covering a wide geographic region in a relatively short time frame. To avoid potential sampling biases associated with the web-based survey methodology, the survey sample will be stratified by geographical region, and within each region, by demographic variables including age, education, Hispanic ethnicity, race, gender, and household income. To assist in the development of this stated preference survey, EPA has requested approval from the Office of Management and Budget to conduct a series of twelve focus groups with a total of 96 respondents (see EPA ICR number 2155.01). These focus groups will be conducted following standard, accepted practices in the stated preference literature. The focus groups will allow EPA to better understand the public’s perceptions and attitudes concerning fishery resources, to frame and define survey questions, to pretest draft survey questions, to test for and eliminate or reduce potential biases that may be associated with stated preference methodology, and to ensure that both researchers and respondents have similar interpretations of survey language and scenarios. An agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required to respond to, a collection of information VerDate jul<14>2003 12:52 Jun 08, 2005 Jkt 205001 unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number. The OMB control numbers for EPA’s regulations in 40 CFR are listed in 40 CFR part 9. The EPA would like to solicit comments to: (i) Evaluate whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the Agency, including whether the information will have practical utility; (ii) Evaluate the accuracy of the Agency’s estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; (iii) Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (iv) Minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are to respond, including through the use of appropriate automated electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or other forms of information technology, e.g., permitting electronic submission of responses. Burden Statement: EPA estimates that the total public reporting and record keeping burden for the 4,400 individuals/households who respond to the survey will be 3,227 hours, for an average of 44 minutes per respondent. The estimated total cost burden to respondents is $57,144. EPA estimates that there will be no capital and operating and maintenance cost burden. This survey is one-time activity. Burden means the total time, effort, or financial resources expended by persons to generate, maintain, retain, or disclose or provide information to or for a Federal agency. This includes the time needed to review instructions; develop, acquire, install, and utilize technology and systems for the purposes of collecting, validating, and verifying information, processing and maintaining information, and disclosing and providing information; adjust the existing ways to comply with any previously applicable instructions and requirements; train personnel to be able to respond to a collection of information; search data sources; complete and review the collection of information; and transmit or otherwise disclose the information.
