Download as PDF srobinson on DSKHWCL6B1PROD with NOTICES 80540 Federal Register / Vol. 75, No. 245 / Wednesday, December 22, 2010 / Notices SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Individuals filing with the OWCP and Division of Coal Mine Workers’ Compensation (DCMWC) for benefits under the Black Lung Benefits Act may elect to be represented or assisted by an attorney or other representative. For those cases that are approved, 30 U.S.C. 901 of the Black Lung Benefits Act and 20 CFR 725.365–6 of the Black Lung Regulations established standards for the information and documentation that must be submitted to the program for review so that the representative may be paid for services rendered to the claimant. Upon receipt of that evidence, the adjudicating official is required by regulation to evaluate the application and, based on the supporting information in the claim file, approve a fee for services rendered. To assist the representatives participating in the Black Lung Benefits Program a form, CM–972, was devised to provide a standardized format for submitting information required by regulation. Form CM–972 is sent to and completed by the authorized representative of a black lung claimant whose claim has been approved for benefits. The completed form is then returned to and evaluated by the district director, administrative law judge, or appropriate appellate tribunal before whom the claimed services were performed, and a fee amount is determined. This information collection is subject to the PRA. A Federal agency generally cannot conduct or sponsor a collection of information, and the public is generally not required to respond to an information collection, unless it is currently approved by the OMB under the PRA and displays a currently valid OMB Control Number. In addition, notwithstanding any other provisions of law, no person shall generally be subject to penalty for failing to comply with a collection of information if the collection of information does not display a currently valid OMB control number. See 5 CFR 1320.5(a) and 1320.6. The DOL obtains OMB approval for this information collection under OMB Control Number 1240–0011. The current OMB approval is scheduled to expire on December 31, 2010; however, it should be noted that information collections submitted to the OMB receive a month-to-month extension while they undergo review. For additional information, see the related notice published in the Federal Register on August 20, 2010 (75 FR 51487). Interested parties are encouraged to send comments to the OMB, Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs at the address shown in the ADDRESSES VerDate Mar<15>2010 20:24 Dec 21, 2010 Jkt 223001 section within 30 days of publication of this notice in the Federal Register. In order to ensure the appropriate consideration, comments should reference OMB Control Number 1240– 0011. The OMB is particularly interested in comments that: • Evaluate whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information will have practical utility; • Evaluate the accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; • Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and • Minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are to respond, including through the use of appropriate automated, electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or other forms of information technology, e.g., permitting electronic submission of responses.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Carol Rowan, BLS Clearance Officer, 202–691–7628 (this is not a toll free number). (See ADDRESSES section.) SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Background The National Longitudinal Survey of Youth 1997 (NLSY97) is a nationally representative sample of persons who were born in the years 1980 to 1984. These respondents were ages 12–17 when the first round of annual interviews began in 1997; the fifteenth round of annual interviews will be conducted from September 2011 to May 2012. The Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) contracts with the National Opinion Research Center (NORC) at the University of Chicago to conduct the NLSY97. The primary objective of the survey is to study the transition from schooling to the establishment of careers and families. The longitudinal focus of this survey requires information to be collected from the same individuals over many years in order to trace their education, training, work experience, fertility, income, and program participation. One of the goals of the Department of Labor (DOL) is to produce and disseminate timely, accurate, and E:\FR\FM\22DEN1.SGM 22DEN1 Federal Register / Vol. 75, No. 245 / Wednesday, December 22, 2010 / Notices relevant information about the U.S. labor force. The BLS contributes to this goal by gathering information about the labor force and labor market and disseminating it to policymakers and the public so that participants in those markets can make more informed, and thus more efficient, choices. Research based on the NLSY97 contributes to the formation of national policy in the areas of education, training, work experience, fertility, income, and program participation. In addition to the reports that the BLS produces based on data from the NLSY97, members of the academic community publish articles and reports based on NLSY97 data for the DOL and other funding agencies. To date, approximately 160 articles examining NLSY97 data have been published in scholarly journals. The survey design provides data gathered from the same respondents over time to form the only dataset that contains this type of information for this important population group. Without the collection of these data, an accurate longitudinal dataset could not be provided to researchers and policymakers, thus adversely affecting the DOL’s ability to perform its policyand report-making activities. srobinson on DSKHWCL6B1PROD with NOTICES II. Current Action The BLS seeks approval to conduct round 15 of annual interviews of the NLSY97. Respondents to the NLSY97 will undergo an interview of approximately 65 minutes during which they will answer questions about schooling and labor market experiences, family relationships, and community background. During the fielding period for the main round 15 interviews, about 2 percent of respondents will be asked to participate in a brief validation interview a few weeks after the initial interview. The purpose of the validation interview is to verify that the initial interview took place as the interviewer reported and to assess the data quality of selected questionnaire items. The BLS plans to record randomly selected segments of the main interviews during round 15. Recording interviews helps the BLS and NORC to ensure that the interviews actually took place and that interviewers are reading the questions exactly as worded and entering the responses properly. Recording also helps to identify parts of the interview that might be causing Total respondents Form NLSY97 Pretest: July–August 2011 .. VerDate Mar<15>2010 20:24 Dec 21, 2010 problems or misunderstanding for interviewers or respondents. Each respondent will be informed that the interview may be recorded for quality control, testing, and training purposes. If the respondent objects to the recording of the interview, the interviewer will confirm to the respondent that the interview will not be recorded and then proceed with the interview. During round 15, the BLS proposes to administer a noninterview respondent questionnaire to sample members who have missed at least five consecutive rounds and who do not complete the round 15 interview on first approach. Responses to this questionnaire will enable the BLS and NORC to learn more about long-term nonrespondents and therefore understand attrition patterns and any nonresponse bias. Other changes in round 15 include collecting permission forms from respondents to obtain their college transcripts. Permission forms were sought in round 14 from respondents who had received a high school diploma or GED credential or completed coursework in a postsecondary degree program. During round 15, BLS and NORC plan to seek permission forms from individuals who have not yet provided one, primarily those who did not complete the round 14 interview or who completed it by phone rather than in person. The round 15 questionnaire includes questions on work schedules for respondents and their spouses or partners. The round 15 questionnaire also includes questions about the lowest wage at which a respondent would accept a job offer (known to labor economists as the reservation wage) and about the hours of desired work for such an offer. Questions will be asked about respondents’ handedness, or left/right dominance, which is of interest to psychologists and neurologists, who have documented handedness as predictive of later neurological conditions. In addition, handedness has been studied as a predictor of workplace injuries. As in prior rounds of the NLSY97, round 15 will include a pretest conducted several months before the main fielding to test survey procedures and questions and resolve problems before the main fielding begins. The Round 15 pretest will include a trial collection of birth certificates on a small number of survey respondents. Birth Jkt 223001 150 PO 00000 Total responses Frequency Annually ...............

This trial collection of birth certificates will provide insight into respondent reactions and concerns regarding the release of administrative records and the logistical issues surrounding the handling, acquiring, and coding of such documents. The round 15 pretest also will include a trial Internet collection of selected information used to locate respondents for interviews. The purpose of the trial is to determine whether Internet collection yields information of higher quality when compared to the current method of collecting the information as part of the interview. The Internet trial also will be used to assess respondent acceptance of Internet collection generally and whether such collection can reduce respondent burden without reducing the quality of the survey information.

    The National Longitudinal Survey of Youth 1997 (NLSY97) is a 
nationally representative sample of persons who were born in the years 
1980 to 1984. These respondents were ages 12-17 when the first round of

from schooling to the establishment of careers and families. The 
longitudinal focus of this survey requires information to be collected 
from the same individuals over many years in order to trace their 
education, training, work experience, fertility, income, and program 
participation.
    One of the goals of the Department of Labor (DOL) is to produce and

relevant information about the U.S. labor force. The BLS contributes to 
this goal by gathering information about the labor force and labor 
market and disseminating it to policymakers and the public so that 
participants in those markets can make more informed, and thus more 
efficient, choices. Research based on the NLSY97 contributes to the 
formation of national policy in the areas of education, training, work 
experience, fertility, income, and program participation. In addition 
to the reports that the BLS produces based on data from the NLSY97, 
members of the academic community publish articles and reports based on

approximately 160 articles examining NLSY97 data have been published in

type of information for this important population group. Without the 
collection of these data, an accurate longitudinal dataset could not be 
provided to researchers and policymakers, thus adversely affecting the 
DOL's ability to perform its policy- and report-making activities.

II. Current Action

    The BLS seeks approval to conduct round 15 of annual interviews of 
the NLSY97. Respondents to the NLSY97 will undergo an interview of 
approximately 65 minutes during which they will answer questions about 
schooling and labor market experiences, family relationships, and 
community background.
    During the fielding period for the main round 15 interviews, about 
2 percent of respondents will be asked to participate in a brief 
validation interview a few weeks after the initial interview. The 
purpose of the validation interview is to verify that the initial 
interview took place as the interviewer reported and to assess the data 
quality of selected questionnaire items.
    The BLS plans to record randomly selected segments of the main 
interviews during round 15. Recording interviews helps the BLS and NORC 
to ensure that the interviews actually took place and that interviewers 
are reading the questions exactly as worded and entering the responses 
properly. Recording also helps to identify parts of the interview that 
might be causing problems or misunderstanding for interviewers or

recorded for quality control, testing, and training purposes. If the 
respondent objects to the recording of the interview, the interviewer 
will confirm to the respondent that the interview will not be recorded 
and then proceed with the interview.
    During round 15, the BLS proposes to administer a noninterview 
respondent questionnaire to sample members who have missed at least 
five consecutive rounds and who do not complete the round 15 interview 
on first approach. Responses to this questionnaire will enable the BLS 
and NORC to learn more about long-term nonrespondents and therefore 
understand attrition patterns and any nonresponse bias. Other changes 
in round 15 include collecting permission forms from respondents to 
obtain their college transcripts. Permission forms were sought in round 
14 from respondents who had received a high school diploma or GED 
credential or completed coursework in a postsecondary degree program. 
During round 15, BLS and NORC plan to seek permission forms from 
individuals who have not yet provided one, primarily those who did not 
complete the round 14 interview or who completed it by phone rather 
than in person.
    The round 15 questionnaire includes questions on work schedules for 
respondents and their spouses or partners. The round 15 questionnaire 
also includes questions about the lowest wage at which a respondent 
would accept a job offer (known to labor economists as the reservation 
wage) and about the hours of desired work for such an offer. Questions 
will be asked about respondents' handedness, or left/right dominance, 
which is of interest to psychologists and neurologists, who have 
documented handedness as predictive of later neurological conditions. 
In addition, handedness has been studied as a predictor of workplace 
injuries.
    As in prior rounds of the NLSY97, round 15 will include a pretest 
conducted several months before the main fielding to test survey 
procedures and questions and resolve problems before the main fielding 
begins. The Round 15 pretest will include a trial collection of birth 
certificates on a small number of survey respondents. Birth 
certificates are the optimal source of information about birth weight, 
a measure of considerable research interest given its relationship with 
child development, lifetime obesity, and other outcomes. This trial 
collection of birth certificates will provide insight into respondent 
reactions and concerns regarding the release of administrative records 
and the logistical issues surrounding the handling, acquiring, and

the interview. The Internet trial also will be used to assess 
respondent acceptance of Internet collection generally and whether such 
collection can reduce respondent burden without reducing the quality of 
the survey information.

III. Desired Focus of Comments

    The Bureau of Labor Statistics is particularly interested in 
comments that:
     Evaluate whether the proposed collection of information is 
necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, 
including whether the information will have practical utility.
     Evaluate the accuracy of the agency's estimate of the 
burden of the proposed collection of information, including the 
validity of the methodology and assumptions used.
     Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the 
information to be collected.
     Minimize the burden of the collection of information on 
those who are to respond, including through the use of appropriate 
automated, electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection 
techniques or other forms of information technology, e.g., permitting 
electronic submissions of responses.
