Please refer to ‘‘OMB Control No. 2900–New (NVS PILOT)’’. PO 00000 Frm 00290 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Title: Pilot Study for the National Survey of Veterans (NVS), Active Duty Service Members, Activated National Guard and Reserve Members, Family Members and Survivors. OMB Control Number: 2900–New (NVS PILOT). Type of Review: New collection. Abstract: The pilot will collect information on awareness, demographics, and provide information needed to determine the best sampling scheme and data collection methodology for the NSV data collection effort. The pilot will also assess the response rates and coverage of the populations of interest for the sampling approach for the NSV. One of the VA’s many goals is to monitor and improve veteran health and well-being. The scope of the NSV is being expanded to address the requirements of Public Law 108–454, section 805, to assess awareness of VA benefits and services among four populations: Veterans, active duty service members, National Guard and Reserve members activated under Title 10, and spouses and survivors of veterans. Because the NSV collects needed information that is not available in VA administrative files and because of the infrequent administration of the NSV, it is important that we minimize the total survey error associated with the study design. It is for these reasons that the VA has planned to conduct a pilot study to inform the design of the next NSV. An agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required to respond to a collection of information unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number.
