OMB No.: 0970–0202. Description: The Department of Health and Human Services intends to collect data on a subset of children and families who have participated in the National Survey of Child and Adolescent Well-Being (NSCAW). The NSCAW was authorized under Section 429 of the Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act of 1996. The survey began in November 1999 with a national sample of 5,501 children ages 0–14 who had been the subject of investigation by Child Protective Services (CPS) during the baseline data collection period, which extended from November 1999 through April 2000. Direct assessments and interviews were conducted with the children themselves, their primary caregivers, their caseworkers, and, for school-aged children, their teachers. Follow-up data collections were conducted 12 months, 18 months and 36 months post-baseline. The current data collection plan involves only a subset of 1,497 children from the original sample, that is, children who were ages 0–12 months during the baseline period. The original sample design for NSCAW was stratified to include an over-sample of infants; thus, the subset that is the subject of this data collection is a representative sample of infants who were the targets of CPS investigations during the survey’s baseline data collection period. This group will be at the beginning of their formal schooling as the next data collection begins, and will allow for the identification of early risk and protective factors, as well as the influence of services and service systems, on their functioning as they enter this critical transition period. The NSCAW is unique in that it is the only source of nationally representative, firsthand information about the functioning and well-being, service needs and service utilization of children and families who come to the attention of the child welfare system. Information is collected about children’s cognitive, social, emotional, behavioral and adaptive functioning, as well as family and community factors that are likely to influence their functioning. Family service needs and service utilization also are addressed in the data collection. The data collection for the follow-up will follow the same format as that used in previous rounds of data collection, and will employ the same instruments that have been used with 5- to 7-yearolds in previous rounds. Data from NSCAW are made available to the research community through licensing arrangements from the National Data Archive on Child Abuse and Neglect, housed at Cornell University. Respondents: Children, who are clients of the child welfare system, their primary caregivers, caseworkers, and teachers.

Submission for OMB Review; Comment Request

    Title: Follow-up to the National Survey of Child and Adolescent 
Well-Being.
    OMB No.: 0970-0202.
    Description: The Department of Health and Human Services intends to 
collect data on a subset of children and families who have participated 
in the National Survey of Child and Adolescent Well-Being (NSCAW). The 
NSCAW was authorized under Section 429 of the Personal Responsibility 
and Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act of 1996. The survey began in 
November 1999 with a national sample of 5,501 children ages 0-14 who 
had been the subject of investigation by Child Protective Services 
(CPS) during the baseline data collection period, which extended from 
November 1999 through April 2000. Direct assessments and interviews 
were conducted with the children themselves, their primary caregivers, 
their caseworkers, and, for school-aged children, their teachers.
    Follow-up data collections were conducted 12 months, 18 months and 
36 months post-baseline. The current data collection plan involves only 
a subset of 1,497 children from the original sample, that is, children 
who were ages 0-12 months during the baseline period. The original 
sample design for NSCAW was stratified to include an over-sample of 
infants; thus, the subset that is the subject of this data collection 
is a representative sample of infants who were the targets of CPS 
investigations during the survey's baseline data collection period. 
This group will be at the beginning of their formal schooling as the 
next data collection begins, and will allow for the identification of 
early risk and protective factors, as well as the influence of services 
and service systems, on their functioning as they enter this critical 
transition period.
    The NSCAW is unique in that it is the only source of nationally 
representative, firsthand information about the functioning and well-
being, service needs and service utilization of children and families 
who come to the attention of the child welfare system. Information is 
collected about children's cognitive, social, emotional, behavioral and 
adaptive functioning, as well as family and community factors that are 
likely to influence their functioning. Family service needs and service 
utilization also are addressed in the data collection. The data 
collection for the follow-up will follow the same format as that used 
in previous rounds of data collection, and will employ the same 
instruments that have been used with 5- to 7-year-olds in previous 
rounds. Data from NSCAW are made available to the research community 
through licensing arrangements from the National Data Archive on Child 
Abuse and Neglect, housed at Cornell University.
    Respondents: Children, who are clients of the child welfare system, 
their primary caregivers, caseworkers, and teachers.
