Chapter 35). Agency: National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). Title: NOAA Constituent Engagement Survey. OMB Control Number: None. Form Number(s): NA. Type of Request: Regular submission (new information collection). Number of Respondents: 650. Average Hours per Response: 20 minutes. Burden Hours: 217. Needs and Uses: On August 9, 2007, President Bush signed legislation into law the America COMPETES (America Creating Opportunities to Meaningfully Promote Excellence in Technology, Education and Science Act, Pub. L. 110–69), which seeks to strengthen education and research related to science and technology (‘‘America Creating Opportunities to Meaningfully Promote Excellence in Technology, Education, and Science Act’’). This legislation is significant for NOAA, granting the agency a mandate to engage in agency-wide education and outreach efforts to all stakeholders. Because NOAA’s information, products and services are important to both the nation as a whole and to the daily lives of U.S. citizens, NOAA’s Science Advisory Board (SAB) has identified a need for more effective two-way communication between its programs and the customers and clients it serves. To achieve this goal, NOAA has also developed a survey PO 00000 Frm 00005 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 instrument to collect responses from core groups of NOAA constituents. The survey instrument will assess NOAA’s accessibility, responsiveness and respect for partners. One objective of the survey is to collect responses to provide NOAA with information and feedback from its constituents that will lead to greater emphasis placed on the needs of NOAA partners, techniques to improve NOAA’s products and services, and general improvement in the accessibility and responsiveness of NOAA to constituents. A longer term objective for this survey is to become a standard NOAA tool accessing engagement with constituents. Affected Public: Business or other forprofit organizations; not-for-profit institutions; state, local or tribal government; Federal Government. Frequency: Annually. Respondent’s Obligation: Voluntary. OMB Desk Officer: David Rostker, (202) 395–3897. Copies of the above information collection proposal can be obtained by calling or writing Diana Hynek, Departmental Paperwork Clearance Officer, (202) 482–0266, Department of Commerce, Room 6616, 14th and Constitution Avenue, NW., Washington, DC 20230 (or via the Internet at dHynek@doc.gov).

Abstract The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) and the U.S. Census Bureau plan to conduct (covered under separate OMB clearance number 1018–0088) the 2011 National Survey of Fishing, Hunting, and Wildlife-Associated Recreation (FHWAR). The FHWAR data assist Federal and State agencies in administering the Sport Fish and Wildlife Restoration grant programs and provide up-to-date information on the uses and demands for wildlife-related recreation resources, trends in uses of those resources, and a basis for developing and evaluating programs and projects to meet existing and future needs. In 2011, the majority (about 90%) of FHWAR cases will be conducted by Computer-Assisted Telephone Interviewing (CATI) in the Census Bureau’s decentralized telephone centers. The remaining cases (about 10%) will be conducted by ComputerAssisted Personal Interviewing (CAPI) in the Census Bureau’s regional offices. Because the FHWAR is an addressbased sample, we predict we will be able to obtain a phone number for approximately 50% of the addresses through address-telephone match vendors and through research conducted by the telephone centers. We will not be able to obtain telephone numbers for approximately 34,064 cases in sample; these cases will be eligible for a CAPI interview. Unfortunately, the budget for the 2011 FHWAR is significantly limiting the number of CAPI interviews that we can conduct. Therefore, we will subsample and preidentify approximately 5,200 cases (out VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:26 Aug 09, 2010 Jkt 220001 of the 34,064 cases without phone numbers) for the CAPI sample. All households will be mailed an advance letter prior to interviewing explaining the survey and requesting that a household member call one of the Census Bureau telephone centers to conduct an interview. In addition to the CATI cases, the pre-identified 5,200 CAPI cases will be available for CATI interviewing in the telephone centers with the expectation that some respondents in these households will call the telephone centers to conduct an interview in CATI. The CATI operation will begin on April 1, 2011. One month later, the cases that were pre-selected for CAPI that have not been conducted in CATI will be transferred to field representatives for personal visits in the CAPI operation. As part of the 2011 FHWAR, we plan to research alternative methods to improve response rates and coverage and to maximize the CATI operation since budget restrictions have significantly reduced, and will continue to reduce, our CAPI sample adding variance to the data. The CAPI component is particularly important because we know that households with available phone numbers may differ in characteristics from those without telephones and those with unlisted phone numbers. In an effort to reach households in which a phone number is unobtainable, we plan to conduct a test in the first wave of interviewing (the FHWAR is conducted in three waves) that includes three panels of 500 households each. These panels will be subsampled from the 34,064 cases without attainable phone numbers. (The remaining 27,364 cases of the 34,064 eligible for CAPI will not be selected for the 2011 FHWAR.) These 1,500 cases will remain in the CATI sample; they will not be transferred to the CAPI operation. The first panel will receive an advance letter with a prepaid cell phone. The advance letter will request that a household member call the telephone center and complete an interview using the cell phone. Census Bureau interviewers also will attempt to call these households using the cell phone number during the production period. The second panel will receive an advance letter and a $25.00 debit card. The advance letter will request that a household member call the telephone center to complete an interview and accept the debit card as a ‘‘thank you’’ for participating. The third panel will receive only an advance letter that requests a household PO 00000 Frm 00006 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 48307 member call the telephone center to complete an interview. Note: The data from these three test panels will be analyzed separately for research purposes, and therefore will be excluded from the final 2011 FHWAR survey data. We plan to have two additional panels of all the households from our FHWAR survey sample for quality comparison. The first additional panel (Panel 4) will be cases that are sent to CAPI in the FHWAR survey. The second additional panel (Panel 5) will be the cases from our CATI sample. Both of these panels will receive an advance letter requesting that a household member call the telephone center to complete an interview. The table below outlines the panel sample sizes. 2011 FHWAR Research Panels Panel 1. Advance Letter and Cell Phone ................................ 2.

Sample Size 500 500 500 5,200 47,891 * Note: Panels 4 and 5 are FHWAR production sample which will be used for comparison. The five panels will help us determine whether there are viable alternatives to collecting data through a personal visit when we only have an address. First, we would like to decide if any of these alternatives are feasible. If the operation of collecting the data works, (i.e., test respondents call the telephone centers and/or contact is made via the cell phone), we want to determine which alternative works best in terms of response rates and cost. First, we will look at the response rates of the five panels. We will consider Panel 4 (Advance Letter with Personal Visit—the current method) as the base line for our study. We will compare the response rate from this panel to the response rates of Panels 1, 2, and 3. These comparisons will help us determine if any of the alternative procedures produce response rates equal to or greater than the current method for cases without phone numbers. Within the three alternative methods, we will consider Panel 3 as a base line and compare its response rate to the response rates of Panels 1 and 2. This test will determine which of the three alternatives produces the highest response rate. In another analysis, we will compare the response rate of the cases with no available phone number E:\FR\FM\10AUN1.SGM 10AUN1 48308 Federal Register / Vol. 75, No. 153 / Tuesday, August 10, 2010 / Notices to the response rate of the cases with a phone number (Panel 4 versus Panel 5). This will help to determine whether conducting a CATI interview differs from conducting a CAPI interview in terms of response rates. We also will analyze the cost and data quality to decide whether sending the household a cell phone or monetary incentive are possible options in the survey data collection process. We will analyze the cost to determine if we can obtain any savings by introducing either of these methods, even if the response rates differ across panels. If this study proves successful, it will provide an option for future FHWAR surveys and other Census surveys by helping to identify the difference between telephone- and no-telephone-available households. This may allow us to minimize CAPI interviewing and maximize CATI interviewing. III. Data OMB Control Number: None. Form Number: None. Type of Review: Regular submission.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION 

I. Abstract

    The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) and the U.S. Census Bureau 
plan to conduct (covered under separate OMB clearance number 1018-0088) 
the 2011 National Survey of Fishing, Hunting, and Wildlife-Associated 
Recreation (FHWAR). The FHWAR data assist Federal and State agencies in 
administering the Sport Fish and Wildlife Restoration grant programs 
and provide up-to-date information on the uses and demands for 
wildlife-related recreation resources, trends in uses of those 
resources, and a basis for developing and evaluating programs and 
projects to meet existing and future needs.
    In 2011, the majority (about 90%) of FHWAR cases will be conducted 
by Computer-Assisted Telephone Interviewing (CATI) in the Census 
Bureau's decentralized telephone centers. The remaining cases (about 
10%) will be conducted by Computer-Assisted Personal Interviewing 
(CAPI) in the Census Bureau's regional offices. Because the FHWAR is an 
address-based sample, we predict we will be able to obtain a phone 
number for approximately 50% of the addresses through address-telephone 
match vendors and through research conducted by the telephone centers. 
We will not be able to obtain telephone numbers for approximately 
34,064 cases in sample; these cases will be eligible for a CAPI 
interview. Unfortunately, the budget for the 2011 FHWAR is 
significantly limiting the number of CAPI interviews that we can 
conduct. Therefore, we will subsample and pre-identify approximately 
5,200 cases (out of the 34,064 cases without phone numbers) for the 
CAPI sample.
    All households will be mailed an advance letter prior to 
interviewing explaining the survey and requesting that a household 
member call one of the Census Bureau telephone centers to conduct an 
interview. In addition to the CATI cases, the pre-identified 5,200 CAPI 
cases will be available for CATI interviewing in the telephone centers 
with the expectation that some respondents in these households will 
call the telephone centers to conduct an interview in CATI. The CATI 
operation will begin on April 1, 2011. One month later, the cases that 
were pre-selected for CAPI that have not been conducted in CATI will be 
transferred to field representatives for personal visits in the CAPI 
operation.
    As part of the 2011 FHWAR, we plan to research alternative methods 
to improve response rates and coverage and to maximize the CATI 
operation since budget restrictions have significantly reduced, and 
will continue to reduce, our CAPI sample adding variance to the data. 
The CAPI component is particularly important because we know that 
households with available phone numbers may differ in characteristics 
from those without telephones and those with unlisted phone numbers.
    In an effort to reach households in which a phone number is 
unobtainable, we plan to conduct a test in the first wave of 
interviewing (the FHWAR is conducted in three waves) that includes 
three panels of 500 households each. These panels will be subsampled 
from the 34,064 cases without attainable phone numbers. (The remaining 
27,364 cases of the 34,064 eligible for CAPI will not be selected for 
the 2011 FHWAR.) These 1,500 cases will remain in the CATI sample; they 
will not be transferred to the CAPI operation.
    The first panel will receive an advance letter with a prepaid cell 
phone. The advance letter will request that a household member call the 
telephone center and complete an interview using the cell phone. Census 
Bureau interviewers also will attempt to call these households using 
the cell phone number during the production period.
    The second panel will receive an advance letter and a $25.00 debit 
card. The advance letter will request that a household member call the 
telephone center to complete an interview and accept the debit card as 
a ``thank you'' for participating.
    The third panel will receive only an advance letter that requests a 
household member call the telephone center to complete an interview.

    Note: The data from these three test panels will be analyzed 
separately for research purposes, and therefore will be excluded 
from the final 2011 FHWAR survey data.

    We plan to have two additional panels of all the households from 
our FHWAR survey sample for quality comparison. The first additional 
panel (Panel 4) will be cases that are sent to CAPI in the FHWAR 
survey. The second additional panel (Panel 5) will be the cases from 
our CATI sample. Both of these panels will receive an advance letter 
requesting that a household member call the telephone center to 
complete an interview. The table below outlines the panel sample sizes.

\*\ Note: Panels 4 and 5 are FHWAR production sample which will be used
  for comparison.

    The five panels will help us determine whether there are viable 
alternatives to collecting data through a personal visit when we only 
have an address. First, we would like to decide if any of these 
alternatives are feasible. If the operation of collecting the data 
works, (i.e., test respondents call the telephone centers and/or 
contact is made via the cell phone), we want to determine which 
alternative works best in terms of response rates and cost.
    First, we will look at the response rates of the five panels. We 
will consider Panel 4 (Advance Letter with Personal Visit--the current 
method) as the base line for our study. We will compare the response 
rate from this panel to the response rates of Panels 1, 2, and 3. These 
comparisons will help us determine if any of the alternative procedures 
produce response rates equal to or greater than the current method for 
cases without phone numbers. Within the three alternative methods, we 
will consider Panel 3 as a base line and compare its response rate to 
the response rates of Panels 1 and 2. This test will determine which of 
the three alternatives produces the highest response rate. In another 
analysis, we will compare the response rate of the cases with no 
available phone number

[[Page 48308]]

to the response rate of the cases with a phone number (Panel 4 versus 
Panel 5). This will help to determine whether conducting a CATI 
interview differs from conducting a CAPI interview in terms of response 
rates.
    We also will analyze the cost and data quality to decide whether 
sending the household a cell phone or monetary incentive are possible 
options in the survey data collection process. We will analyze the cost 
to determine if we can obtain any savings by introducing either of 
these methods, even if the response rates differ across panels. If this 
study proves successful, it will provide an option for future FHWAR 
surveys and other Census surveys by helping to identify the difference 
between telephone- and no-telephone-available households. This may 
allow us to minimize CAPI interviewing and maximize CATI interviewing.
