The National Death Index (NDI) is a national data base containing identifying death record information submitted annually to NCHS by all the state vital statistics offices, beginning with deaths in 1979. Searches against the NDI file provide the states and dates of death, and the death certificate numbers of deceased study subjects. Using the NDI Plus service, researchers have the option of also receiving cause of death information for deceased subjects, thus reducing the need to request copies of death certificates from the states. The NDI Plus option currently provides the International Classification of Diseases (ICD) codes for the underlying and multiple causes of death for the years 1979–2005. Health researchers must complete administrative forms in order to apply for NDI services, and submit records of study subjects for computer matching against the NDI file. A threeyear clearance is requested. There is no cost to respondents except for their time. The total estimated annual burden hours are 182.

Proposed Project Program Effectiveness Evaluation of Workplace Intervention for Intimate Partner Violence (IPV)—New—National Center for Injury Prevention and Control (NCIPC), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Background and brief description of the proposed project Intimate partner violence (IPV) affects a substantial number of Americans, and there has recently been increasing recognition of the impact it has on the workplace. In addition to direct impacts (batterers often stalk or even attack IPV victims at their place of work), IPV has indirect impacts on the workplace environment through lost productivity due to medical leave, absenteeism, and fear and distraction on the part of victims and co-workers. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has contracted with RTI International (RTI) to evaluate an ongoing workplace IPV prevention program being implemented at a national corporation. The purpose of the proposed evaluation is to document in detail the workplace IPV prevention activities delivered by the company, to determine the impact of these activities on short-term and longterm outcomes, and to determine the Number of responses per respondent 50 70 120 1 1 1 Average burden per esponse (in hours) 2.5 18/60 18/60 cost-effectiveness of the program. All managers at the corporation will be screened to assess training experiences. Then, more in-depth surveys will be done among managers who have not had the corporation’s IPV training. We will survey those 500 managers at baseline, and 6 and 12 months later. Manager surveys will focus on knowledge/awareness of IPV and company resources for IPV and number of referrals for IPV assistance. We will also survey two waves of employees of those managers (N = 1500) using a webbased survey at baseline and 12 months later to assess their self-evaluated productivity, absenteeism, and perceptions of manager behavior. We will compare the responses of managers (and their employees) who received the IPV training in the study period (i.e., sometime between the baseline and 12 month surveys) with untrained managers. The study will provide CDC and employers information about the potential effectiveness and costeffectiveness of workplace IPV intervention strategies. There are no costs to respondents other than their time to participate in the interview. The estimated total annualized burden hours are 1125. mstockstill on PROD1PC66 with NOTICES ESTIMATED ANNUALIZED BURDEN HOURS Type of respondent Form name Manager ...........................

    Intimate partner violence (IPV) affects a substantial number of 
Americans, and there has recently been increasing recognition of the 
impact it has on the workplace. In addition to direct impacts 
(batterers often stalk or even attack IPV victims at their place of

lost productivity due to medical leave, absenteeism, and fear and 
distraction on the part of victims and co-workers. The Centers for 
Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has contracted with RTI 
International (RTI) to evaluate an ongoing workplace IPV prevention 
program being implemented at a national corporation. The purpose of the 
proposed evaluation is to document in detail the workplace IPV 
prevention activities delivered by the company, to determine the impact 
of these activities on short-term and long-term outcomes, and to 
determine the cost-effectiveness of the program. All managers at the 
corporation will be screened to assess training experiences. Then, more 
in-depth surveys will be done among managers who have not had the
