OMB approval for the 2005 YRBS and 2007 YRBS expired November 30, 2007 (OMB No. 0920– 0493). CDC seeks a three-year approval to conduct the YRBS in Spring 2009 and Spring 2011. Minor changes incorporated into this reinstatement request include: An updated title for the information collection, to accurately reflect the years in which the survey will be conducted; minor changes to the burden estimate; and minor changes to the data collection instrument. The YRBS assesses priority health risk behaviors related to the major preventable causes of mortality, morbidity, and social problems among both youth and young adults in the United States. Data on health risk behaviors of adolescents are the focus of approximately 40 national health objectives in Healthy People 2010, an initiative of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). The YRBS provides data to measure at least 10 of the health objectives and 3 of the 10 Leading Health Indicators established by Healthy People 2010. In addition, the YRBS can identify racial and ethnic disparities in health risk behaviors. No other national source of data measures as many of the Healthy People 2010 objectives addressing adolescent behaviors as the YRBS. The data also will have significant implications for policy and program development for school health programs nationwide. In Spring 2009 and Spring 2011, the YRBS will be conducted among nationally representative samples of students attending public and private schools in grades 9–12. Information supporting the YRBS also will be collected from school administrators and teachers. The table below reports the total number of respondents for the two cycles of data collection (2009 and 2011) annualized over the 3-year project period. There are no costs to respondents except their time. The total estimated annualized burden hours are 6,215.

To request more information on the proposed projects or to obtain a copy of the data collection plans and instruments, call 404–639–0164 or send comments to Maryam Daneshvar, CDC Acting Reports Clearance Officer, 1600 Clifton Road, MS–D74, Atlanta, GA 30333 or send an e-mail to omb@cdc.gov. Comments are invited on: (a) Whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information shall have information from this research will be used to develop a targeted marketing campaign to increase awareness of and access to HHE Program services. To begin, NIOSH will conduct a Web based survey of potential customers in the Food and Beverage Manufacturing or Services to Buildings and Dwellings industry who are responsible for workplace health and safety. The goals of the survey are to determine: (1) What percentage of customers are familiar with the HHE Program; (2) how customers surveyed prefer to receive occupational safety and health-related information, (3) what occupational safety and health communication products are most useful to customers surveyed; (4) what barriers prevent customers surveyed from using HHE Program resources; (5) what would motivate customers surveyed to use HHE Program resources; and (6) what are the top occupational safety and health concerns of those surveyed. This will be followed by qualitative research (focus groups) to determine (1) what concepts are most effective at raising awareness of the HHE Program with consumers, and (2) what messages should be used to inform customers about the HHE Program. The results from both phases of this research will be used to design and refine a targeted marketing campaign before materials are promoted and distributed nationally. Each phase will be conducted over a two to three month period. There will be no cost to respondents other than their time. practical utility; (b) the accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information; (c) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (d) ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on respondents, including through the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology. Written comments should be received within 60 days of this notice. Proposed Project Health Hazard Evaluation Program Customer Research—New—The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Background and Brief Description The Health Hazard Evaluation (HHE) Program was mandated by specific provision of the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 and the Federal Mine Safety Act of 1977. Through the HHE Program, NIOSH responds to requests to identify chemical, biological or physical hazards in workplaces throughout the United States. An HHE Program evaluation can be requested by employers, employees, employee representatives, other federal agencies, and state and local agencies. NIOSH proposes conducting a program of quantitative and qualitative research to help ensure that the HHE Program is responsive to the needs of its customers and enhances the diversity of workplaces and hazards assessed.

Proposed Project

    2009 and 2011 National Youth Risk Behavior Surveys (YRBS) (OMB No. 
0920-0493)--Reinstatement--National Center for Chronic Disease 
Prevention and Health Promotion (NCCDPHP), Centers for Disease Control 
and Prevention (CDC).

Background and Brief Description

    The purpose of this request is to obtain OMB approval to continue 
data collection for the National Youth Risk Behavior Survey (YRBS), a 
school-based survey that has been conducted biennially since 1991. OMB 
approval for the 2005 YRBS and 2007 YRBS expired November 30, 2007 (OMB 
No. 0920-0493). CDC seeks a three-year approval to conduct the YRBS in 
Spring 2009 and Spring 2011. Minor changes incorporated into this 
reinstatement request include: An updated title for the information 
collection, to accurately reflect the years in which the survey will be 
conducted; minor changes to the burden estimate; and minor changes to 
the data collection instrument.
    The YRBS assesses priority health risk behaviors related to the 
major preventable causes of mortality, morbidity, and social problems 
among both youth and young adults in the United States. Data on health 
risk behaviors of adolescents are the focus of approximately 40 
national health objectives in Healthy People 2010, an initiative of the 
U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). The YRBS provides 
data to measure at least 10 of the health objectives and 3 of the 10 
Leading Health Indicators established by Healthy People 2010. In 
addition, the YRBS can identify racial and ethnic disparities in health 
risk behaviors. No other national source of data measures as many of 
the Healthy People 2010 objectives addressing adolescent behaviors as 
the YRBS. The data also will have significant implications for policy 
and program development for school health programs nationwide.
    In Spring 2009 and Spring 2011, the YRBS will be conducted among 
nationally representative samples of students attending public and 
private schools in grades 9-12. Information supporting the YRBS also 
will be collected from school administrators and teachers. The table 
below reports the total number of respondents for the two cycles of 
data collection (2009 and 2011) annualized over the 3-year project 
period.
    There are no costs to respondents except their time. The total 
estimated annualized burden hours are 6,215.
