Abstract of Proposed Collection Section 7209 of the Intelligence Reform and Terrorism Prevention Act (IRTPA), enacted on December 17, 2004, requires the Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), in consultation with the Secretary of State, to develop expeditiously, and implement a plan to require U.S. citizens and certain other categories of individuals to present a passport or sufficient documentation of the identity and citizenship when entering the U.S. This law has had significant effect on travel to Canada, Mexico, and the Caribbean. CA/PPT has urgent and pressing data requirements and needs to obtain and regular statistical data on issues that focus on, and are related to, travel and passport applications that can be used to monitor, assess, and forecast passport demand on a continuous basis for the U.S. population including critical population segments near the Canadian and Mexican borders. In support of these efforts, CA/PPT plans to conduct monthly and incremental forecasts of passport demand nationally. This gathering of data will provide the opportunity to refine volume and timing estimates on demand, and will gauge public reaction to economic and sociodemographic changes. PO 00000 Frm 00208 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Methodology CA/PPT will conduct monthly panel studies that will be conducted using multiple methodologies. Methodologies can include telephone, Web/Internet, mail, and mixed mode surveys to ensure the survey reaches the appropriate audience and leverages the best research method to obtain responses given the survey topic and panel member preference. The panel data will cover an estimated 48,000 respondents and include variables covering passport, travel, and socio-demographic variables of interest to CA/PPT. Date:June 2, 2011. Barry J.
