VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:00 Oct 26, 2010 Jkt 223001 It is estimated that 653 respondents (80 percent of the sample) will spend a cumulative total of 15 minutes annually responding to the survey and/or verifying information.

This estimate is higher than the figure reported on the 60 day notice (139.75 hours). The figure listed in the 60 day notice assumed a response rate of 70 percent. However, BJS and the data collection agent will continue to identify ways to encourage a higher response rate in future data collections and, as will be set forth in the FY2011 funding announcement for the FIST program, BJS has established as a performance measure a goal of achieving an overall response rate of 80 percent. To calculate the current estimated public reporting burden for this information collection, the estimated response rate submitted previously was reassessed and revised to reflect the current performance measure established for the data collection agent. This revised estimate remains lower than the estimated public burden approved in 2007 (341.5 hours). The decreased burden is associated with a change in data collection schedule from twice to once annually. BJS determined that the relevant data could be effectively obtained by administering the survey once a year, and this schedule is anticipated to continue in subsequent information collections.
