The National Intimate Partner and Sexual Violence Surveillance System (NISVS)(0920–0822, Expiration 06/30/ 2014)—Reinstatement with change— National Center for Injury Prevention and Control (NCIPC), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Background and Brief Description The health burden of Intimate Partner Violence (IPV), Sexual Violence (SV) and stalking are substantial. In order to address this important public health problem, CDC implemented, beginning in 2010, the National Intimate Partner and Sexual Violence Surveillance System (NISVSS) that produces national and state level estimates of IPV, SV and Stalking on an annual basis. In 2010, a total of 16,507 NISVSS interviews were conducted among English and/or Spanish speaking male and female adults (18 years and older) living in the United States. The data indicated that nearly 1 in 3 women and 1 in 10 men in the United States have experienced rape, physical violence and/or stalking by an intimate partner and reported at least one impact related to experiencing these or other forms of violent behavior within the relationship (e.g., being fearful, concerned for safety, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) symptoms, need for health care, injury, contacting a crisis hotline, need for housing services, need for victim’s advocate services, need for legal services, missed at least one day of work or school).

The health care costs associated with IPV exceed $5.8 billion each year, of which nearly $3.9 billion is for direct medical and mental health care services. Sexual violence also has a profound and long-term impact on the physical and mental health of the victim. Existing estimates of lifetime experiences of rape range from 15% to 36% for females. Sexual violence against men, although less prevalent, is also a public health problem; approximately, 1 in 5 women and 1 in 71 men have experienced attempted, completed, or alcohol or drug facilitated rape at some point in their lifetime. Nearly 1.3 million women reported being raped in the past 12 months. The NISVSS data indicates that approximately 5 million women and 1.4 million men in the United States were stalked in the 12 months prior to the survey. There are overlaps between stalking and other forms of violence in intimate relationships; approximately 14% of females who were stalked by an intimate partner in their lifetime also experienced physical violence by an intimate partner; while 12% of female victims experienced rape, physical violence and stalking by a current or former intimate partner in their lifetime. Furthermore, 76% of female victims of intimate partner homicides were stalked by their partners before they were killed. CDC requests Office of Management and Budget (OMB) approval reinstatement with changes for an additional three years to implement the previously approved pilot tested instrument of 2013 in the normal data collection cycle in order to collect national level data annually beginning in 2014. The NISVSS survey instrument had been shortened in efforts to develop a core instrument that will be administered on an annual basis. The goals of the revised data collection instrument are to: (1) Improve NISVSS data quality, (2) increase our response rates, (3) decrease the breakoff rates, (4) reduce the average amount of time it takes to complete the survey, (5) and ultimately reduce the burden on the respondent.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (PRA) (44 U.S.C. 3501–3520), federal agencies must obtain approval from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for each collection of information they conduct or sponsor. The term ‘‘collection of information’’ is defined in 44 U.S.C. 3502(3) and 5 CFR 1320.3(c) and includes agency requests or requirements that members of the public submit reports, keep records, or provide information to a third party.

States use templates when they are available and submit the forms to review for consistency with statutory and regulatory requirements (or in the case of waivers and demonstrations whether the proposal is likely to promote the objectives of the Medicaid program). If the requirements are met, we approve the states’ submissions giving them the authority to implement the flexibilities. For a state to receive Medicaid Title XIX funding, there must be an approved Title XIX state plan. The development of streamlined submissions forms enhances the collaboration and partnership between states and CMS by documenting our policy for states to use as they are developing program changes. Streamlined forms improve efficiency of administration by creating a common and user-friendly understanding of the information we need to quickly process requests for state plan amendments, waivers, and demonstration, as well as ongoing reporting.

System (NISVS)(0920-0822, Expiration 06/30/2014)--Reinstatement with 
change--National Center for Injury Prevention and Control (NCIPC), 
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Background and Brief Description

    The health burden of Intimate Partner Violence (IPV), Sexual 
Violence (SV) and stalking are substantial. In order to address this 
important public health problem, CDC implemented, beginning in 2010, 
the National Intimate Partner and Sexual Violence Surveillance System 
(NISVSS) that produces national and state level estimates of IPV, SV 
and Stalking on an annual basis.
    In 2010, a total of 16,507 NISVSS interviews were conducted among 
English and/or Spanish speaking male and female adults (18 years and 
older) living in the United States. The data indicated that nearly 1 in 
3 women and 1 in 10 men in the United States have experienced rape, 
physical violence and/or stalking by an intimate partner and reported 
at least one impact related to experiencing these or other forms of 
violent behavior within the relationship (e.g., being fearful, 
concerned for safety, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) symptoms, 
need for health care, injury, contacting a crisis hotline, need for 
housing services, need for victim's advocate services, need for legal 
services, missed at least one day of work or school). Approximately 6.9 
million women and 5.6 million men experienced rape, physical violence 
and/or stalking by an intimate partner within the last year. The health 
care costs associated with IPV exceed $5.8 billion each year, of which 
nearly $3.9 billion is for direct medical and mental health care 
services.
    Sexual violence also has a profound and long-term impact on the 
physical and mental health of the victim. Existing estimates of 
lifetime experiences of rape range from 15% to 36% for females. Sexual 
violence against men, although less prevalent, is also a public health 
problem; approximately, 1 in 5 women and 1 in 71 men have experienced 
attempted, completed, or alcohol or drug facilitated rape at some point 
in their lifetime. Nearly 1.3 million women reported being raped in the 
past 12 months.
    The NISVSS data indicates that approximately 5 million women and 
1.4 million men in the United States were stalked in the 12 months 
prior to the survey. There are overlaps between stalking and other 
forms of violence in intimate relationships; approximately 14% of 
females who were stalked by an intimate partner in their lifetime also 
experienced physical violence by an intimate partner; while 12% of 
female victims experienced rape, physical violence and stalking by a 
current or former intimate partner in their lifetime. Furthermore, 76% 
of female victims of intimate partner homicides were stalked by their 
partners before they were killed.
    CDC requests Office of Management and Budget (OMB) approval 
reinstatement with changes for an additional three years to implement 
the previously approved pilot tested instrument of 2013 in the normal 
data collection cycle in order to collect national level data annually 
beginning in 2014. The NISVSS survey instrument had been shortened in 
efforts to develop a core instrument that will be administered on an 
annual basis. The goals of the revised data collection instrument are 
to: (1) Improve NISVSS data quality, (2) increase our response rates, 
(3) decrease the breakoff rates, (4) reduce the average amount of time 
it takes to complete the survey, (5) and ultimately reduce the burden 
on the respondent.

    In this data collection period, 85,000 households will be screened. 
After determining eligibility and consent, 12,500 respondents will 
complete the survey. The average burden per screened respondent remains 
at 3 minutes, while the average burden per surveyed respondent is 25 
minutes. The total estimated annualized burden hours are 9,458.
    The survey will be conducted among English or Spanish speaking male 
and female adults (18 years and older) living in the United States. 
There are no costs to respondents other than their time.
