Download as PDF 55190 Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 188 / Friday, September 28, 2007 / Notices screening, and Combat Stress Control programs about the mental health needs of Active-Duty personnel, Reservists, and Veterans. The baseline questionnaire includes a Combat Exposure Scale used to estimate high combat exposure and to inform participants who exceed a predetermined score that they are eligible for the second phase of study and request their participation in the follow-up interviews. NHRC proposes tracking over time these respondents for the longitudinal portion of the study. Furthermore, the subsequent mental well-being of this high-risk cohort will be assessed through these new data collected 6 months after the participants of the baseline survey have transitioned to civilian life. Data from extant historical personnel and medical data will also be combined with survey data to develop models that demonstrate the influence of combat, and a variety of covariates on mental health symptoms, resilience, and substance abuse. We estimate that approximately 1,800 of the 6,000 baseline participants will be eligible for and consent to participate in the 6 month follow-up survey. In order to ensure that we can locate these respondents, the questionnaire will include name, relocation plans, names and contact information for two friends or relatives who always know where the respondent is living, and the respondent’s date of birth and social security number. The follow-up surveys will be sent to respondents through the mail. Respondents will also have the option of completing this survey via the Web, which will closely simulate the hardcopy version of the instrument. Approximately 15% of Military personnel are women. Therefore, it is estimated that 15% will be the proportion of women completing the survey; the remaining 85% will be male respondents. Dated: September 21, 2007. Patricia L.
