Download as PDF 16191 Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 58 / Friday, March 25, 2016 / Notices proposed projects. To request more information on the proposed projects or to obtain a copy of the information collection plans, call the SAMHSA Reports Clearance Officer on (240) 276– 1243. Comments are invited on: (a) Whether the proposed collections of information are 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 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. Proposed Project: 2017 National Survey on Drug Use and Health (OMB No. 0930–0110)—Revision The National Survey on Drug Use and Health (NSDUH) is a survey of the U.S. civilian, non-institutionalized population aged 12 years old or older. The data are used to determine the prevalence of use of tobacco products, alcohol, illicit substances, and illicit use of prescription drugs. The results are used by SAMHSA, the Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP), Federal government agencies, and other organizations and researchers to establish policy, direct program activities, and better allocate resources. While NSDUH must be updated periodically to reflect changing substance use and mental health issues and to continue producing current data, for the 2017 NSDUH only the following minor changes are planned: (1) Updated questions so respondents who report no use of alcohol are not asked about misuse of prescription drugs with alcohol; and (2) included other minor wording changes to improve the flow of the interview, increase respondent comprehension or to be consistent with text in other questions. As with all NSDUH/NHSDA 1 surveys conducted since 1999, the sample size of the survey for 2017 will be sufficient to permit prevalence estimates for each of the fifty States and the District of Columbia. The total annual burden estimate is shown below in Table 1.
