The separation will provide greater flexibility in managing this episodic information collection without needing to revisit more permanent aspects of the ATUS. The Eating and Health Supplement module includes questions about peoples’ eating and drinking behaviors, food assistance participation, grocery and meal shopping, food preparation, and food sufficiency. The Supplement also includes questions on general health and physical exercise. Information collected in the Supplement will be published as a public use data set to facilitate research on numerous topics, such as the association between eating patterns, physical activity, and Body Mass Index; time-use patterns of food assistance program participants and low-income nonparticipants; and how time-use varies by health status. The Supplement surveys individuals aged 15 and up from a nationally representative sample. This proposed information collection is subject to the PRA. A Federal agency generally cannot conduct or sponsor a collection of information, and the public is generally not required to respond to an information collection, unless it is approved by the OMB under the PRA and displays a currently valid OMB Control Number. In addition, notwithstanding any other provisions of law, no person shall generally be subject to penalty for failing to comply with a collection of information if the collection of information does not display a valid Control Number. See 5 CFR 1320.5(a) and 1320.6. For additional information, see the related notice published in the Federal Register on July 29, 2013 (78 FR 45567).

American Time Use Survey (ATUS) Eating and Health Supplement, which was 
previously collected as part of the master ATUS information collection 
approved under Control Number 1220-0175, into a new Control Number. The 
separation will provide greater flexibility in managing this episodic 
information collection without needing to revisit more permanent 
aspects of the ATUS. The Eating and Health Supplement module includes 
questions about peoples' eating and drinking behaviors, food assistance 
participation, grocery and meal shopping, food preparation, and food 
sufficiency. The Supplement also includes questions on general health 
and physical exercise. Information collected in the Supplement will be 
published as a public use data set to facilitate research on numerous 
topics, such as the association between eating patterns, physical 
activity, and Body Mass Index; time-use patterns of food assistance 
program participants and low-income nonparticipants; and how time-use 
varies by health status. The Supplement surveys individuals aged 15 and 
up from a nationally representative sample.
    This proposed information collection is subject to the PRA. A

notwithstanding any other provisions of law, no person shall generally 
be subject to penalty for failing to comply with a collection of 
information if the collection of information does not display a valid 
Control Number. See 5 CFR 1320.5(a) and 1320.6. For additional
