The formula for calculating the proportion of added burden is: total number of items in the standard instrument, minus the number of core items currently included, divided by the total number of items in the standard instrument. For the TCE Initiative’s interviews the estimates were calculated as follows: For the Baseline interview the burden estimate = 165 times 0.64 (the proportion of added burden) = 106. For the 6-Month interview the burden estimate = 135 times 0.73 (the proportion of added burden) = 99. For the 12-Month interview the burden estimate = 105 times 0.72 (the proportion of added burden) = 76. 3 The number of responses per respondent for the Events Tracking depends on the design of the jail diversion program and can range from a single screening for eligibility to four separate screenings; here 2 responses represents the average number of responses per respondent based on the experience of the previous grantees. 4 For the Person Tracking program the burden estimate was calculated as follows: 30 times 0.65 (the proportion of added burden) = 20 (see Footnote 2 above for more information about the burden proportion). 5 Record management forms (Service Use and Arrest) are only completed for those evaluation participants who receive both a Baseline interview and at least one follow-up (6- and/or 12-month) interview. 2 This The averages for the three years of evaluations are 988 responses, 26,894 total responses, and 1,373 hours of burden. Written comments and recommendations concerning the proposed information collection should be sent by March 1, 2006 to: SAMHSA Desk Officer, Human Resources and Housing Branch, Office of Management and Budget, New Executive Office Building, Room 10235, Washington, DC 20503; due to potential delays in OMB’s receipt and processing of mail sent through the U.S. Postal Service, respondents are encouraged to submit comments by fax to: 202–395–6974.
