The Survey program contains the core data that is collected, analyzed and communicated by NTTO with other government agencies, associations and businesses that share the same objective of increasing U.S. international travel exports. The Survey assists NTTO in assessing the economic impact of international travel on state and local economies, providing visitation estimates, key market intelligence, and identifying traveler and trip characteristics. The U.S. Department of Commerce assists travel industry enterprises to increase international travel and passenger fare exports for the country as well as outbound travel on U.S. carriers. The Survey program provides the only available estimates of nonresident visitation to the states and cities within the United States, as well as U.S. resident travel abroad. A new survey instrument (questionnaire) (English version plus its translations into eleven foreign languages) was implemented in 2012. It reflects input from over 70 respondents, including: Travel Industry (airlines, travel associations, destinations, lodging); Consultants; Financial Firms; Educational Institutions; and other U.S. Government Agencies. The new Survey questionnaire reflects changes in various questions relating to: Trip purpose; Payment methods; Booking/Information sources; additional package components, health care/ vaccinations, travel insurance information, additional transportation utilized, Assessment of the Visitor’s Experience; and intentions for further travel to the United States; Ethnicity/ race. Several questions from the preexisting 1996 questionnaire were eliminated to further streamline the survey. II. Method of Collection The survey instrument/questionnaire (‘‘Survey of International Air Travelers’’) continues to be in paper format and is self-administered by the passenger who volunteers to take the survey, either while in the departure gate area or on-board the flight. The flights are selected randomly and this approach is described as ‘cluster sampling.’ The majority (80%) of the passenger surveys are collected in U.S. airport departure gate areas. About 20% of all the passenger surveys are collected during flight (on-board) post VerDate Sep<11>2014 19:49 Dec 16, 2014 Jkt 235001 departure (Canada is not part of the program). U.S. and foreign flag airlines that volunteer to participate in the Survey program enable the collection either in U.S. departure gate areas or onboard flights. NTTO is planning to change the format to electronic or to a more efficient and equally statistically valid process once compelling results have been attained. To date there have been ‘e-Survey tests’ in partnership with Global Distribution Systems (GDS) and with a major airline in its boarding area. Other tests are planned this year including the goal to leverage personal electronic devices (PED) and Wi-Fi capabilities in the airport and on-board certain flights. OMB Control Number: 0625–0227. Form Number(s): None. Type of Review: Regular submission [extension of a current information collection]. Affected Public: Individuals or households. Estimated Number of Respondents: 300,000 [changed from 99,400 due to mandate of the Travel Promotion Act which requires a ‘one percent’ sample of overseas arrivals]. Estimated Time per Response: 15 minutes. Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 75,000. Estimated Total Annual Cost to Public: $0. IV. Request for Comments Comments are invited on: (a) Whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information shall have practical utility; (b) the accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden (including hours and cost) of the proposed collection of information; (c) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (d) ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on respondents, including through the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology. Comments submitted in response to this notice will be summarized and/or included in the request for OMB approval of this information collection; they also will become a matter of public record.
