Download as PDF 66652 Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 218 / Monday, November 10, 2008 / Notices Research, the California Department of Health Services, and the California Public Health Institute, the survey is funded by a number of public and private sources. It was first administered in 2001 to 55,428 adults and subsequently in 2003 to 42,043 adults, in 2005 to 43,020 adults, and in 2007 to 48,150 adults. These adults are a representative sample of California’s non-institutionalized population living in households. CHIS 2009, the fifth biannual survey, is planned for administration to 55,000 adult Californians. This study will allow NCI to examine patterns and trends in cancer screening and follow-up, as well as to study other cancer-related topics such as tobacco control, diet, physical activity, and obesity. Additionally, CHIS is designed to be comparable to the National Health Interview Survey (NHIS) data in order to conduct comparative analyses. CHIS provides enhanced estimates for cancer risk factors and screening among racial/ ethnic minority populations. Frequency of Response: Once. Affected public: Individuals or households. Types of Respondents: U.S. adults and adolescents (persons 12 years of age and older). The total annual burden hours requested are 3,436.93 (see Table A). The annualized cost to respondents is estimated at: $57,825. There are no Capital Costs, Operating Costs, and/or Maintenance Costs to report.
