Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 195 / Tuesday, October 7, 2008 / Notices mstockstill on PROD1PC66 with NOTICES granted by Title 13, United States Code, Section 8 and by the Public Health Service Act, Title 42, United States Code, Sections 306 & 2102(a)(7). In response to one of the goals of the 1993 Childhood Immunization Initiative, to monitor childhood immunization coverage and provide important statistics about childhood vaccinations and related health matters, funding for the NIS was provided and data collection began in April 1994. Furthermore, the scope of the program expanded to include assessing progress towards the national vaccination goals set forth by the Childhood Immunization Initiative of 1996. Currently, the NIS provides vaccination coverage estimates annually for children aged 19–35 months and teens aged 13– 17 years, by state and at least six city/ county areas. The information collected is used to evaluate state and local immunization programs, to develop health care policies, and to assist in the determination of funding allocations for the Vaccines for Children (VFC) program. Since 1994, the VFC program has helped families of children who may not otherwise have access to vaccines by providing free vaccines to doctors who serve them. In recent years, the NIS has covered a decreasing portion of the target population, particularly children aged 19–35 months living in households with cell phone, but not landline telephone service. As part of the CDC’s continuing effort to evaluate and refine the NIS, this study is intended to explore how partnering with the Census Bureau and sampling from the ACS for households with age-eligible children having landline, cell phone only, and no telephone service could result in improvements to the survey especially in terms of coverage, response, and cost. II. Method of Collection Data collection for the NIS Evaluation Study will use a multi-mode approach. First, computer-assisted telephone interviewing (CATI) will be conducted with households with age-eligible children (19–35 months) to collect information on the vaccinations received for each age-eligible child, as well as information on vaccination providers. Second, in-person follow-up interviews with non-responders, including households with no telephone service, will be conducted. Due to constraints in time and resources, the follow-up interviews for the evaluation study will be conducted using paperand-pencil interviewing methods. If the results from the evaluation study prove beneficial, in-person follow-up interviews for the national survey will VerDate Aug<31>2005 18:23 Oct 06, 2008 Jkt 217001 be conducted using computer-assisted personal interviewing (CAPI) methods whereby field representatives collect the data from respondents using laptop computers. Third, vaccination providers will be contacted through the use of a paper mail-out/mail-back process. Providers will submit information on vaccinations administered and the dates the vaccinations were administered for each child 19 through 35 months. Only providers of age-eligible children whose parent or guardian participated in the telephone or paper follow-up survey and who gave consent to follow-up with the provider will be contacted. The provider information on the type of vaccine, the number of vaccinations, and the dates of vaccination will be used to estimate vaccination coverage levels; the information obtained from the parent or guardian will be used to evaluate the completeness of the provider-reported information. III. Data OMB Control Number: None. Form Number: None. Type of Review: Regular submission.

The application was submitted pursuant to the provisions of the Foreign-Trade Zones Act, as amended (19 U.S.C. 81a– 81u), and the regulations of the Board (15 CFR part 400). It was formally filed on October 1, 2008. The ThyssenKrupp facility (2,500 employees, 3,515 acres/square feet, 4.5 million metric ton capacity for carbon steel products and 1 million metric ton capacity for stainless steel products) is located at 1 ThyssenKrupp Drive, near the city of Calvert, Washington and Mobile Counties, Alabama. The facility will be used for the manufacturing, processing and distribution of carbon and stainless steel products. Components and materials sourced from abroad (representing 44% of the value of finished stainless steel products and 45% of the value of the finished carbon steel products) include: Ferrochromium, unwrought molybdenum, ferrosilicon, articles of titanium, ferrosilicon manganese, unwrought titanium, ferroniobium, ferro-boron, wire and rods of agglom, unwrought aluminum and zinc (duty rate ranges from duty-free to 15%).
