Submission for OMB Review; Comment Request, 7971-7972 [06-1400]

Download as PDF 7971 Federal Register / Vol. 71, No. 31 / Wednesday, February 15, 2006 / Notices and neglect reports relative to the number of reports investigated in the previous year. (11) The number of children reunited with their families or receiving family preservation services that, within five years, result in subsequent substantiated reports of child abuse and neglect, including the death of the child. (12) The number of children for whom individuals were appointed by the court to represent the best interests of such children and the average number of out-of-court contacts between such individuals and children. States that receive the Basic State Grant meet this information requirement by submitting the NCANDS data. The Children’s Bureau proposes to continue collecting the NCANDS data through the two files of the Detailed Case Data Component, the Child File (the case-level component of NCANDS), and the Agency File (additional aggregate data that cannot be collected at a case level). It also proposes to continue to accept the Summary Data Component Survey from States that are unable to submit the Child File for another three data submission cycles (FFY 2005–FFY 2007). Technical assistance will continue to be provided to States so that all States can provide the Child File and Agency File for FFY 2005 data. No changes are proposed for any of the data collection instruments. The information collected by NCANDS will be used to understand better the experiences of children and families served by Child Protective Services and to guide policy and program development at the national and local levels. An annual report, entitled Child Maltreatment, will continue to be published. Data collected through the NCANDS will also be used to support the Department in responding to the requirements of the Government Performance and Results Act (GPRA) and the Program Assessment Rating Tool (PART), publishing State data in the report to Congress on child welfare outcomes, and monitoring States through the Child and Family Services Review process. Respondents: State governments, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico.

OMB No.: 0970–0043. Description: The information collection of the ORR–11 (Refugee Stateof-Origin Report) is designed to satisfy the statutory requirements of the Immigration and Nationally Act. Section 412(a)(3) of the Act requires the Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR) to compile and maintain data on the secondary migration of refugees within the United States, after arrival. In order to meet this legislative requirement, ORR requires each State to submit an annual count of the number of refugees who were initially resettled in another State. The State does this by counting the number of refugees with Social Security numbers indicating residence in another State at the time of arrival in the United States. (The first three digits of the Social Security number indicates the State of residence of the applicant.) Data submitted by the States are compiled and analyzed by the ORR statistician, who then prepares a summary report, which is included in ORR’s Annual Report to Congress. The primary use of the data is to quantify and analyze refugee secondary migration among the 50 States. ORR uses these data to adjust its refugee arrival totals in order to calculate the ORR social services allocation. Respondents: States.
