Respondents for the Monthly Vital Statistics Reports Form are registration officials in each State and Territory, the District of Columbia, and New York City. In addition, local (county) officials in New Mexico who record marriages occurring and divorces and annulments granted in each county of New Mexico will use this form. This form is also designed to collect counts of monthly occurrences of births, deaths, infant deaths, marriages, and divorces immediately following the month of occurrence. The Annual Vital Statistics Occurrence Report Form collects final annual counts of marriages and divorces by month for the United States and for each State. The statistical counts requested on this form differ from provisional estimates obtained on the Monthly Vital Statistics Report Form in that they represent complete counts of marriages, divorces, and annulments occurring during the months of the prior year. These final counts are usually available from State or county officials about eight months after the end of the data year. The data are widely used by government, academic, private research, and commercial organizations in tracking changes in trends of family formation and dissolution.

Individual level data will not be collected. Aggregated data will collected during focus groups and surveys to form a ‘profile’ of Congolese refugee regarding their levels of anxiety, depression, PTSD, ability to cope, physical functioning, bodily pain, role limitations due to physical health problems, role limitations due to personal or emotional problems, emotional well-being, and social function. The focus group discussion tool poses eight open-ended questions and will be moderated by a professional in the appropriate language for the specific Congolese refugee group. For the survey tool, CDC proposes to the use a compilation of the Hopkins Symptom Checklist, Harvard Trauma Questionnaire, the Medical Outcomes Assessment 36-Item Short-Form Health Survey (SF–36), a limited number of questions from The Coping Strategy Indicator, and questions concerning history of mental illness or substance abuse. Each of these tools has been used in similar populations that have experienced trauma or in conflict environments. The sample population will be a convenience sample of the Congolese refugee population ages 15 or older in Uganda and will be selected from the available population being examined during the International Organization for Migration (IOM) medical or Resettlement Support Center (RSC) screening interviews. As refugees are waiting for their IOM exam or RSC interview, staff will introduce the assessment with the help of an interpreter, and make arrangements for obtaining consent from refugees who meet the inclusion and exclusion criteria prior to the assessment. There is no cost to respondents other than their time. The total estimated annualized burden hours are 386. to provide information. Burden means the total time, effort, or financial resources expended by persons to generate, maintain, retain, disclose or provide information to or for a Federal agency.

Proposed Project Mental Health Profile of Congolese Refugees—New—National Center for Emerging and Zoonotic Infectious Diseases (NCEZID), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Background and Brief Description The central objective of this collection is to compile a mental health profile of Congolese refugees departing from Uganda, and to describe some of the mental health conditions most often experienced by this population. The specific objectives are (1) through a survey and focus groups, collect more detailed and systematic data on exposure to trauma and symptoms of PTSD, anxiety, and depression among a sample of Congolese refugees from Uganda prior to their resettlement in the United States; and, (2) to better inform state and local healthcare providers in the United States and in Uganda about the mental health needs of the Congolese refugee populations come to their states. As CDC have seen in previous surveys, although there may be similarities in the mental health problems that refugee populations may experience over all, there are also very specific differences in terms of cultural background, coping styles, severity, and risk factors. Without doing a survey, it would not be possible to provide specific recommendations for Congolese refugees who are coming to the U.S. ESTIMATED ANNUALIZED BURDEN HOURS Number of respondents Type of respondents Form name Refugee .................................

Proposed Project

    National Vital Statistics Report Forms (OMB No. 0920-0213, expires 
04/30/2015)--Extension--National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS), 
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Background and Brief Description

    The compilation of national vital statistics dates back to the 
beginning of the 20th century and has been conducted since 1960 by the 
Division of Vital Statistics of the National Center for Health 
Statistics, CDC. The collection of the data is authorized by 42 U.S.C. 
242k. This submission requests approval to collect the monthly and 
annually summary statistics for three years.
    The Monthly Vital Statistics Report forms provide counts of monthly 
occurrences of births, deaths, infant deaths, marriages, and divorces. 
Similar data have been published since 1937 and are the sole source of 
these data at the National level. The data are used by the Department 
of Health and Human Services and by other government, academic, and 
private research and commercial organizations in tracking changes in 
trends of vital events. Respondents for the Monthly Vital Statistics 
Reports Form are registration officials in each State and Territory, 
the District of Columbia, and New York City. In addition, local 
(county) officials in New Mexico who record marriages occurring and 
divorces and annulments granted in each county of New Mexico will use 
this form. This form is also designed to collect counts of monthly 
occurrences of births, deaths, infant deaths, marriages, and divorces 
immediately following the month of occurrence.
    The Annual Vital Statistics Occurrence Report Form collects final 
annual counts of marriages and divorces by month for the United States 
and for each State. The statistical counts requested on this form 
differ from provisional estimates obtained on the Monthly Vital 
Statistics Report Form in that they represent complete counts of 
marriages, divorces, and annulments occurring during the months of the 
prior year. These final counts are usually available from State or 
county officials about eight months after the end of the data year. The 
data are widely used by government, academic, private research, and 
commercial organizations in tracking changes in trends of family 
formation and dissolution. Respondents for the Annual Vital Statistics 
Occurrence Report Form are registration officials in each State and 
Territory, the District of Columbia, and New York City.
    There are no costs to respondents other than their time. The total 
estimated annualized burden hours are 211.
