All tables and reports are made available in various electronic formats on the Web (http://www.nsf/gov/ statistics/). The survey results are also into the Web-based Computer-Aided Science Policy Analysis and Research (WebCASPAR) database system. The URL for WebCASPAR is http:// caspar.nsf.gov/webcaspar. A public release file is also made available on the World Wide Web. Comment: On May 11, 2011 we published in the Federal Register (76 FR 27369) a 60-day notice of our intent to request reinstatement of this information collection authority from OMB. In that notice, we solicited public comments for 60 days ending July 11, 2011. One comment was received from the public notice. The comment came from Jean Public via e-mail on May 12, 2011. Ms. Public objected to the information collection and suggested less frequent collection. Response: We responded to Ms. Public on May 26, 2011 describing the program, the survey frequency and the cost issues raised by Ms. Public. NSF believes that because the comment does not pertain to the collection of information on the required forms for which NSF is seeking OMB approval NSF is proceeding with the clearance request. Need and Use of the Information: The Federal government, universities, researchers, and others use the information extensively. The National Science Foundation and the National Institutes of Health, publishes statistics from the survey in several reports, but primarily in the annual report series, ‘‘Survey of Graduate Students and Postdoctorates in Science and Engineering’’, and the congressionally mandated biennial publication series, ‘‘Science and Engineering Indicators’’ and ‘‘Women, Minorities and Persons with Disabilities in Science and Engineering’’. Description of Respondents: Individuals. Number of Respondents: 15,395. Frequency of Responses: Annually. Total Burden Hours: 40,201. Dated: July 19, 2011. Suzanne H. Plimpton, Reports Clearance Officer, National Science Foundation.
