FEMA’s agreement with the CDC includes an initial formaldehyde exposure assessment as well as a subsequent long-term study of the health effects among resident children. Formaldehyde testing conducted and evaluated by the CDC pursuant to the initial exposure assessment has identified the need to evaluate the feasibility of establishing a national registry to identify and monitor the temporary housing units) and data provided by self-identified individuals who were displaced by the hurricanes but did not live in the FEMA temporary trailers, members of a pre-defined population (in the case of occupants of non-temporary housing units). A computer-assisted telephone interview (CATI) system based on a paper questionnaire will be used during all interviews to collect data for this project. The first part will consist of screening questions to determine eligibility for enrollment. The second part will contain contact information of the registrant and other household members, demographics, and health status questions, focusing on respiratory outcomes and cancer. There are no costs to the respondents other than their time. health of disaster victims who occupied FEMA-provided temporary housing units. The establishment of such a registry would complement the longterm health effects study set forth in the FEMA–CDC Interagency Agreement. The purpose of this study is to assess the feasibility of contacting and enrolling members of the targeted group in a registry; to provide a basis for budgeting and further planning for a comprehensive registry; and to test the acceptance of and response to a questionnaire composed of standardized health questions related to systemic and respiratory symptoms. A pre-registration dataset will be created before enrollment.

OMB No.: 0970–0202. Description: The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) intends to collect follow-up data on a sample of children and families for the National Survey of Child and Adolescent WellBeing (NSCAW). The NSCAW was authorized under Section 427 of the Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunities Reconciliation Act of 1996. The NSCAW is the only source of nationally representative, firsthand information about the functioning and well-being, service needs, and service utilization of children and families who come to the attention of the child welfare system. Information is collected about children’s cognitive, social, emotional, behavioral, and adaptive functioning, as well as family and community factors that are likely to influence their functioning. Family service needs and service utilization also are addressed in the data collection. Selection of the current NSCAW sample and baseline data collection began in 2007 with a final anticipated sample size of 5,700 children. The proposed data collection will allow for follow-up of this sample 18 months post-baseline, and will follow the same format as that used in the baseline round and will employ, with only modest revisions, the same instruments that were used in the previous round. Data from NSCAW are made available to the research community through licensing arrangements from the National Data Archive on Child Abuse and Neglect at Cornell University.
