Moreover, information will be collected on the utilization of information technology systems in state courts. All data collected will be accurate as of December 2009. (5) An Estimate of the Total Number of Respondents and the Amount of Time Estimated for an Average Respondent to Respond: The State Court Organization (SCO) data collection forms will be sent to each of the nation’s 56 court systems (those for the 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and the U.S territories including American Samoa, Guam, Northern Mariana Islands, and the Virgin Islands).

There are a total of 62 spreadsheets that the respondents will be asked to complete for their individual states or courts. Consistent with past data collections, recurring tables will be populated with data previously reported in prior SCO publications. Previous SCO surveys, along with pretests of the current data collection spreadsheets, have shown that it should take an estimated half an hour for the 56 court systems to review and revise each pre-populated spreadsheets. Since 38 of the 62 spreadsheets hail from prior SCO surveys, the total burden hours to review, revise, and update the prepopulated SCO spreadsheets for each of the court systems should be about 19 hours (38 spreadsheets × half an hour per spreadsheet = 19 hours per state or U.S. territory). For new spreadsheets, no historical data will be available, and the data collection forms will be blank.

Since 24 of the 62 spreadsheets involve the collection of new SCO data, the total burden hours to collect the requested data for each court systems should be about 24 hours (24 spreadsheets × one hour per spreadsheet = 24 hours per state or U.S. territory). Therefore, each of the 56 respondent state court systems will require 43 hours to complete the SCO data collection request.

a previously approved collection for which OMB approval has expired, 
State Court Organization, 2009.
    (2) The title of the form/collection: State Court Organization,

    (4) Affected Public Who Will be Asked or Required to Respond, as 
well as a Brief Abstract: State trial and appellate courts and state 
administrative court offices. Abstract: State Court Organization 2009 
will focus on the organizational structure of state courts throughout 
the country. Emphasis will be placed on collecting information 
pertaining to the number of trial and appellate court judges, the 
selection of judicial officers, the governance of the judicial branch, 
the funding and budgets of state courts, appellate and trial court 
staffing, the use of juries, and sentencing procedures. Moreover, 
information will be collected on the utilization of information 
technology systems in state courts. All data collected will be accurate 
as of December 2009.
    (5) An Estimate of the Total Number of Respondents and the Amount 
of Time Estimated for an Average Respondent to Respond: The State Court 
Organization (SCO) data collection forms will be sent to each of the 
nation's 56 court systems (those for the 50 states, the District of 
Columbia, Puerto Rico, and the U.S territories including American 
Samoa, Guam, Northern Mariana Islands, and the Virgin Islands). The 
data collection instruments will be in the form of spreadsheets that 
will basically mirror the electronic and PDF tables produced for the 
SCO report. There are a total of 62 spreadsheets that the respondents 
will be asked to complete for their individual states or courts. 
Consistent with past data collections, recurring tables will be 
populated with data previously reported in prior SCO publications. 
Previous SCO surveys, along with pretests of the current data 
collection spreadsheets, have shown that it should take an estimated 
half an hour for the 56 court systems to review and revise each pre-
populated spreadsheets. Since 38 of the 62 spreadsheets hail from prior 
SCO surveys, the total burden hours to review, revise, and update the 
pre-populated SCO spreadsheets for each of the court systems should be 
about 19 hours (38 spreadsheets x half an hour per spreadsheet = 19 
hours per state or U.S. territory). For new spreadsheets, no historical 
data will be available, and the data collection forms will be blank. 
Pretests have shown that it should take an hour to provide the 
requested information for each data collection spreadsheet. Since 24 of 
the 62 spreadsheets involve the collection of new SCO data, the total 
burden hours to collect the requested data for each court systems 
should be about 24 hours (24 spreadsheets x one hour per spreadsheet = 
24 hours per state or U.S. territory). Therefore, each of the 56 
respondent state court systems will require 43 hours to complete the 
SCO data collection request.
    (6) An Estimate of the Total Public Burden (in hours) Associated 
with the

[[Page 59294]]

collection: The total burden hours to complete revision and review 
portion of the SCO data collection will be 1,064 hours (19 hours to 
review and revise 38 spreadsheets per court system x 56 respondents = 
1,064 hours). The total burden hours involved in collection of the new 
SCO data will be 1,344 hours (24 hours to provide data for 24 
spreadsheets per court system x 56 respondents = 1,344 hours). 
Therefore, it is estimated that the 56 court systems should require 
2,408 hours (1,064 hours to revise and update 38 prior SCO spreadsheets 
+ 1,344 hours to provide data for 24 new SCO spreadsheets) to complete 
data collection for the SCO project.
