(4) Affected public who will be asked or required to respond, as well as a brief abstract: Primary: State departments of corrections. Others: State government and Federal government. The National Corrections Reporting Program (NCRP) is the only national data collection furnishing annual individual-level information for state prisoners at five points in the incarceration process: VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:56 Aug 12, 2015 Jkt 235001 Prison admission; prison release; annual yearend prison custody census; entry to post-custody community corrections supervision; and exits from postcustody community corrections supervision. BJS, the U.S. Congress, researchers, and criminal justice practitioners use these data to describe annual movements of adult offenders through state correctional systems, as well as to examine long term trends in time served in prison, demographic and offense characteristics of inmates, sentencing practices in the states that submit data, transitions between incarceration and community corrections, and recidivism. Providers of the data are personnel in the states’ Departments of Corrections and Parole, and all data are submitted on a voluntary basis. The NCRP collects the following administrative data on each inmate in participating states’ custody: • County of sentencing • State and federal inmate identification numbers • Dates of: Birth; prison admission; prison release; projected prison release; mandatory prison release; eligibility hearing for post-custody community corrections supervision; post-custody community corrections supervision entry, post-custody community corrections supervision exit • First and last names • Demographic information: Sex; race; Hispanic origin; education level; prior military service; date and type of last discharge from military • Offense type and number of counts per inmate for a maximum of three convicted offenses per inmate • Prior time spent in prison and jail, and prior felony convictions • Total sentence length imposed • Additional offenses and sentence time imposed since prison admission • Type of facility where inmate is serving sentence (for yearend custody census records only, the name of the facility is also requested) • Type of prison admission • Type of prison release • Whether inmate was AWOL/escape during incarceration • Agency assuming custody of inmate released from prison (post-custody community supervision records only) • Supervision status prior to discharge from post-custody community supervision and type of discharge • Location of post-custody community supervision exit or post-custody community supervision office (postcustody community supervision records only) In addition, BJS is requesting OMB clearance to add the following items to PO 00000 Frm 00091 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 the NCRP collection, all of which are likely available from the same databases as existing data elements, and should therefore pose minimal additional burden to the respondents, while greatly enhancing BJS’ ability to better characterize the corrections systems and populations it serves: • 9-digit social security number • Address of last residence prior to incarceration • Custody security level at which the inmate is held BJS uses the information gathered in NCRP in published reports and statistics. The reports will be made available to the U.S. Congress, Executive Office of the President, practitioners, researchers, students, the media, others interested in criminal justice statistics, and the general public via the BJS Web site. (5) An estimate of the total number of respondents and the amount of time estimated for an average respondent to respond: BJS anticipates 57 respondents to NCRP for report year 2015: 50 state respondents and seven separate state parole boards. Each respondent currently submitting NCRP prison and post-custody community supervision data will require an estimated 27 hours of time to supply the information for their annual caseload and an additional 3 hours documenting or explaining the data for a total of 1,317 hours. For the one state which has not submitted prison data since 2004, and the 19 states that do not currently submit postcustody community supervision data, the total first year’s burden estimate is 510 hours, which includes the time required for developing or modifying computer programs to extract the data, performing and checking the extracted data, and submitting it electronically to BJS’ data collection agency via SFTP. The total burden for all 57 NCRP data providers is 1,827 hours for report year 2015. All states submit data via a secure file transfer protocol (SFTP) electronic upload.

Overview of This Information Collection

    (1) Type of Information Collection: Extension of a Currently 
Approved Collection.
    (2) The Title of the Form/Collection: National Corrections 
Reporting Program. The collection includes the forms: Prisoner 
Admission Report, Prisoner Release Report, Prisoners in Custody at 
Yearend Report, Post-Custody Community Supervision Entry Report, Post-
Custody Community Supervision Exit Report.
    (3) The agency form number, if any, and the applicable component of 
the Department sponsoring the collection: Form number(s): NCRP-1A, 
NCRP-1B, NCRP-1D, NCRP-1E, NCRP-1F. The applicable component within the 
Department of Justice is the Bureau of Justice Statistics (Corrections 
Unit), in the Office of Justice Programs.
    (4) Affected public who will be asked or required to respond, as 
well as a brief abstract: Primary: State departments of corrections. 
Others: State government and Federal government. The National 
Corrections Reporting Program (NCRP) is the only national data 
collection furnishing annual individual-level information for state 
prisoners at five points in the incarceration process: Prison 
admission; prison release; annual yearend prison custody census; entry 
to post-custody community corrections supervision; and exits from post-
custody community corrections supervision. BJS, the U.S. Congress, 
researchers, and criminal justice practitioners use these data to 
describe annual movements of adult offenders through state correctional 
systems, as well as to examine long term trends in time served in 
prison, demographic and offense characteristics of inmates, sentencing 
practices in the states that submit data, transitions between 
incarceration and community corrections, and recidivism. Providers of 
the data are personnel in the states' Departments of Corrections and 
Parole, and all data are submitted on a voluntary basis. The NCRP 
collects the following administrative data on each inmate in 
participating states' custody:

 County of sentencing
 State and federal inmate identification numbers
 Dates of: Birth; prison admission; prison release; projected 
prison release; mandatory prison release; eligibility hearing for post-
custody community corrections supervision; post-custody community 
corrections supervision entry, post-custody community corrections 
supervision exit
 First and last names
 Demographic information: Sex; race; Hispanic origin; education 
level; prior military service; date and type of last discharge from 
military
 Offense type and number of counts per inmate for a maximum of 
three convicted offenses per inmate
 Prior time spent in prison and jail, and prior felony 
convictions
 Total sentence length imposed
 Additional offenses and sentence time imposed since prison 
admission
 Type of facility where inmate is serving sentence (for yearend 
custody census records only, the name of the facility is also 
requested)
 Type of prison admission
 Type of prison release
 Whether inmate was AWOL/escape during incarceration
 Agency assuming custody of inmate released from prison (post-
custody community supervision records only)
 Supervision status prior to discharge from post-custody 
community supervision and type of discharge
 Location of post-custody community supervision exit or post-
custody community supervision office (post-custody community 
supervision records only)

    In addition, BJS is requesting OMB clearance to add the following 
items to the NCRP collection, all of which are likely available from 
the same databases as existing data elements, and should therefore pose 
minimal additional burden to the respondents, while greatly enhancing 
BJS' ability to better characterize the corrections systems and 
populations it serves:

 9-digit social security number
 Address of last residence prior to incarceration
 Custody security level at which the inmate is held

    BJS uses the information gathered in NCRP in published reports and 
statistics. The reports will be made available to the U.S. Congress, 
Executive Office of the President, practitioners, researchers, 
students, the media, others interested in criminal justice statistics, 
and the general public via the BJS Web site.
    (5) An estimate of the total number of respondents and the amount 
of time estimated for an average respondent to respond: BJS anticipates 
57 respondents to NCRP for report year 2015: 50 state respondents and 
seven separate state parole boards. Each respondent currently 
submitting NCRP prison and post-custody community supervision data will 
require an estimated 27 hours of time to supply the information for 
their annual caseload and an additional 3 hours documenting or 
explaining the data for a total of 1,317 hours. For the one state which 
has not submitted prison data since 2004, and the 19 states that do not 
currently submit post-custody community supervision data, the total 
first year's burden estimate is 510 hours, which includes the time 
required for developing or modifying computer programs to extract the 
data, performing and checking the extracted data, and submitting it 
electronically to BJS' data collection agency via SFTP. The total 
burden for all 57 NCRP data providers is 1,827 hours for report year 
2015. All states submit data via a secure file transfer protocol (SFTP) 
electronic upload.
    (6) An estimate of the total public burden (in hours) associated 
with the collection: There are an estimated 1,827 total burden hours 
associated with this collection for report year 2015.
    If additional information is required contact: Jerri Murray, 
Department Clearance Officer, United States Department of Justice, 
Justice Management Division, Policy and Planning Staff, Two 
Constitution Square, 145 N Street NE., 3E.405B, Washington, DC 20530.
