Download as PDF mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 77, No. 180 / Monday, September 17, 2012 / Notices (3) Type of Request: Comprehensive Evaluation of an Existing Data Collection; (4) Purpose: The U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) is planning to request a three year approval from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) to conduct a comprehensive evaluation of an existing data collection, the Financial Reporting System, EIA–28. This is not a request to collect data using the existing data collection. It is a request to collect data in order to evaluate an existing data collection. This includes investigating what data are being collected on the form, how these data are understood by respondents, and how useful the data being collected are to stakeholders. The goal of this evaluation is to collect enough data about the existing data collection to successfully inform the future redesign of the EIA–28. This authority would allow EIA to conduct field testing, pilot surveys, respondent debriefings, cognitive interviews, usability interviews, and focus groups in support of this evaluation. Through the use of these methods, EIA will improve the quality of data being collected, reduce or minimize respondent burden, increase agency efficiency, and improve responsiveness to the public. Note that the use of any or all of these methods is dependent upon the availability of resources and all methods are voluntary. The methods proposed for coverage by this evaluation are the following: Field Testing. Field testing surveys conducted under this evaluation will generally be methodological studies of 100 cases or less. A field test is used to clarify particular issues, rather than to replicate all components of a methodological design. Accordingly, field tests will not employ statistically representative samples. Pilot Surveys. Pilot surveys conducted under this evaluation will generally be methodological studies of 100 cases or less. The pilot surveys will replicate all components of the methodological design, sampling procedures (where possible) and questionnaires of the full scale survey. Accordingly, pilot tests will employ statistically representative samples. Respondent Debriefings. Respondent debriefings conducted under this evaluation will generally be methodological studies of 100 cases or less. Respondent debriefings are usually conducted post data collection and are used to determine potential issues with data quality and to determine a more accurate respondent burden measure. Respondent debriefings can employ either statistically or non-statistically VerDate Mar<15>2010 19:43 Sep 14, 2012 Jkt 226001 representative samples. When employing statistically representative samples, respondent debriefings allow EIA to improve its understanding of variance for the items in the EIA–28. Cognitive Interviews. Cognitive interviews conducted under this evaluation will generally number 50 or less. Cognitive interviews are used to identify problems of ambiguity or misunderstanding, or other difficulties respondents have answering questions, and reduce measurement error in a survey. Cognitive interviews will not employ statistically representative samples Usability Interviews. Usability interviews conducted under this evaluation will generally number 50 or less. Usability interviews are used to make sure that electronic questionnaires, Web sites and other associated materials are user-friendly, allowing respondents to easily and intuitively navigate the electronic item and find the information that they seek. Usability interviews will not employ statistically representative samples. Focus Groups. Focus groups conducted under this evaluation will generally number 25 or less. Focus groups are used to identify and explore issues with populations of interest, e.g., from a specific group of stakeholders. Focus groups will not employ statistically representative samples. (5) Annual Estimated Number of Respondents: 300; (6) Annual Estimated Number of Total Responses: 300; (7) Annual Estimated Number of Burden Hours: 450; (8) Annual Estimated Reporting and Recordkeeping Cost Burden: 0. EIA estimates that there are no additional costs to respondents associated with the surveys other than the costs associated with the burden hours.
