Data Collection Component SAMHSA/CSAP will use a web-based method to collect data through the Organizer Survey and a paper-andpencil approach to collect data through the Participant Form. The web-based application will comply with the requirements of Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act to permit accessibility to people with disabilities. Every 2 years, the Organizer Survey will be completed by an estimated 3,400 THM event organizers and will require only one response per respondent. It will take an average of 20 minutes (0.333 hours) to review the instructions and complete the survey. This burden estimate is based on comments from three 2012 THM organizers who reviewed the survey and provided comments on how long it would take them to complete it. The Participant Form will be completed by an average of 30 participants per sampled communitybased organization (n=400) and will require only one response per respondent. It will take an average of 5 minutes (0.083 hours) to review the instructions and complete the form.

Collecting data on each round of THMs, and using this information to inform policy and measure impact, supports SAMHSA’s strategic initiative number 1: Prevention of substance abuse and mental illness. A specific goal under this initiative is to prevent or reduce the consequences of underage drinking and adult problem drinking; a specific objective is to establish the prevention of underage drinking as a priority issue for states, territories, tribal entities, colleges and universities, and communities. SAMHSA will use the information collected to document the implementation efforts of this nationwide initiative, determine if the federally sponsored THMs lead to additional activities within the community that are aimed at preventing and reducing underage drinking, identify what these activities may possibly include, and help plan for future rounds of THMs. SAMHSA intends to post online a summary document of each round of THMs and present findings at national conferences attended by community-based organizations that have hosted THMs and might host future events. Similarly, SAMHSA plans to share findings with the Interagency Coordinating Committee on the Prevention of Underage Drinking: Agencies within this committee encourage their grantees to participate as event hosts. Additionally, the information collected will support performance measurement for SAMHSA programs under the Government Performance Results Act.

Data Collection Component

    SAMHSA/CSAP will use a web-based method to collect data through the 
Organizer Survey and a paper-and-pencil approach to collect data 
through the Participant Form. The web-based application will comply 
with the requirements of Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act to 
permit accessibility to people with disabilities.
    Every 2 years, the Organizer Survey will be completed by an 
estimated 3,400 THM event organizers and will require only one response 
per respondent. It will take an average of 20 minutes (0.333 hours) to 
review the instructions and complete the survey. This burden estimate 
is based on comments from three 2012 THM organizers who reviewed the 
survey and provided comments on how long it would take them to complete 
it.
    The Participant Form will be completed by an average of 30 
participants per sampled community-based organization (n=400) and will 
require only one response per respondent. It will take an average of 5 
minutes (0.083 hours) to review the instructions and complete the form.

    SAMHSA supports nationwide THMs every other year. Collecting data 
on each round of THMs, and using this information to inform policy and 
measure impact, supports SAMHSA's strategic initiative number 1: 
Prevention of substance abuse and mental illness. A specific goal under 
this initiative is to prevent or reduce the consequences of underage 
drinking and adult problem drinking; a specific objective is to 
establish the prevention of underage drinking as a priority issue for 
states, territories, tribal entities, colleges and universities, and 
communities.
    SAMHSA will use the information collected to document the 
implementation efforts of this nationwide initiative, determine if the 
federally sponsored THMs lead to additional activities within the 
community that are aimed at preventing and reducing underage drinking, 
identify what these activities may possibly include, and help plan for 
future rounds of THMs. SAMHSA intends to post online a summary document 
of each round of THMs and present findings at national conferences 
attended by community-based organizations that have hosted THMs and 
might host future events. Similarly, SAMHSA plans to share findings 
with the Interagency Coordinating Committee on the Prevention of 
Underage Drinking: Agencies within this committee encourage their 
grantees to participate as event hosts. Additionally, the information 
collected will support performance measurement for SAMHSA programs 
under the Government Performance Results Act.
