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 427 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 base line 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 a subset of 950 children from the original sample who were ages 12 and older at baselines, and who will be ages 18 and older at follow-up. This group will be in early adulthood, and this follow-up will allow for assessing the functioning and service utilization for this age group as they enter independent living situations. The youths will be interviewed with questions covering social, emotional and behavioral adjustment, living arrangements, employment, service needs, and service utilization. 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 were used for adolescents who had moved into independent living status 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.

Proposed Information Collection Activity; Comment Request

    Proposed Projects:
    Title: Adolescent 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 427 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 base line 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 a 
subset of 950 children from the original sample who were ages 12 and 
older at baselines, and who will be ages 18 and older at follow-up. 
This group will be in early adulthood, and this follow-up will allow 
for assessing the functioning and service utilization for this age 
group as they enter independent living situations. The youths will be 
interviewed with questions covering social, emotional and behavioral 
adjustment, living arrangements, employment, service needs, and service 
utilization.
    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 were used for adolescents who had moved into 
independent living status in previous rounds. Data from NSCAW are made
