By qualitative feedback we mean information that provides useful insights on perceptions and opinions, but are not statistical surveys that yield quantitative results that can be generalized to the population of study.

Proposed Project Development and Evaluation of Eagle Books and Youth Eagle Books for American Indians and Alaska Natives (AI/ANs)—New—National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (NCCDPHP), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Background and Brief Description The development of effective diabetes prevention programs targeting AI/AN youth is a compelling priority in education and public health. AI/AN individuals develop type 2 diabetes at younger ages, experience more years of disease burden and have a high probability of developing diabetesrelated complications. However, research shows that type 2 diabetes can be prevented or delayed with healthy foods and nutrition, moderate physical activity, and social support. A number of health communication products have been developed specifically for AI/AN youth. These include the Eagle Books, the Youth Books, and the Diabetes Education in Tribal Schools (DETS) curriculum. The Eagle Books are a series of four books that have been incorporated into the lesson plans for the Kindergarten (K) through fourth grades of the DETS curriculum. The materials are a result of a project that engaged eight Tribal Colleges and Universities, NIH, CDC, and IHS to develop culturally-grounded, scientifically sound lessons to promote awareness about diabetes and lifestyle adaptations. CDC is currently developing additional books for Native American youth ages nine to thirteen (the ‘‘Youth Books’’). CDC plans to conduct a descriptive evaluation of the Eagle Books and the DETS curriculum. Data collection will involve discussion groups and in-depth interviews conducted during site visits to 12 selected American Indian communities. Each site visit will consist of: (i) Interviews with up to 3 community health representatives; (ii) Interviews with up to 2 school administrators from a local elementary school and a middle school; (iii) One discussion (focus) group with teachers from a local elementary school and one discussion group with teachers from a E:\FR\FM\18APN1.SGM 18APN1

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:
    Title: Generic Clearance for the Collection of Qualitative Feedback 
on Agency Service Delivery.
    Abstract: The information collection activity will gamer 
qualitative customer and stakeholder feedback in an efficient, timely 
manner, in accordance with the Administration's commitment to improving 
service delivery. By qualitative feedback we mean information that 
provides useful insights on perceptions and opinions, but are not 
statistical surveys that yield quantitative results that can be 
generalized to the population of study. This feedback will provide 
insights into customer or stakeholder perceptions, experiences and 
expectations, provide an early warning of issues with service, or focus 
attention on areas where communication, training or changes in 
operations might improve delivery of products or services. These 
collections will allow for ongoing, collaborative and actionable 
communications between the Agency and its customers and stakeholders. 
It will also allow feedback to contribute directly to the improvement 
of program management.
    Feedback collected under this generic clearance will provide useful 
information, but it will not yield data that can be generalized to the 
overall population. This type of generic clearance for qualitative 
information will not be used for quantitative information collections 
that are designed to yield reliably actionable results, such as 
monitoring trends over time or documenting program performance. Such 
data uses require more rigorous designs that address: The target 
population to which generalizations will be made, the sampling frame, 
the sample design (including stratification and clustering), the 
precision requirements or power calculations that justify the proposed 
sample size, the expected response rate, methods for assessing 
potential non-response bias, the protocols for data collection, and any 
testing procedures that were or will be undertaken prior to fielding 
the study. Depending on the degree of influence the results are likely 
to have, such collections may still be eligible for submission for 
other generic mechanisms that are designed to yield quantitative 
results.
    Below we provide AHRQ's projected average annual estimates for the 
next three years:
    Current Actions: New collection of information.
    Type of Review: New Collection.
    Affected Public: Individuals and Households, Businesses and 
Organizations, State, Local or Tribal Government.
    Average Expected Annual Number of Activities: 10.
    Respondents: 10,900.
    Annual Responses: 10,900.
    Frequency of Response: Once per request.
    Average Minutes per Response: 19.
    Burden Hours: 3,383.
    An agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required 
to respond to, a collection of information unless it displays a 
currently valid Office of Management and Budget control number.

Request for Comments

    In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act, comments on AHRQ's 
information collection are requested with regard to any of the 
following: (a) Whether the proposed collection of information is 
necessary for the proper performance of AHRQ healthcare research and 
healthcare information dissemination functions, including whether the 
information will have practical utility; (b) the accuracy of AHRQ's 
estimate of burden (including hours and costs) of the proposed 
collection(s) of information; (c) ways to enhance the quality, utility,
