Use of the Information: Results from the SED are used to assess characteristics of the doctorate population and trends in doctoral education and degrees by researchers, policy makers, universities, and government agencies. Data from the survey are published annually on the NCSES Web site in a publication series reporting on all fields of study, titled Doctorate Recipients from U.S. Universities. Information from the SED is also included in other series available online: Science and Engineering Degrees; Science and Engineering Degrees, by Race/Ethnicity of Recipients; Science and Engineering Indicators; and Women, Minorities, and Persons with Disabilities in Science and Engineering. In addition, access to tabular data from selected variables is available through WebCASPAR, an online table-generating tool on the NCSES Web site. 3. Expected Respondents: The SED is a census of all individuals receiving a research doctorate from an accredited U.S. academic institution in the academic year beginning 1 July and ending 30 June of the subsequent year. As such, the population for the 2018 SED consists of all individuals receiving a research doctorate in the 12-month period beginning 1 July 2017 and ending 30 June 2018. Likewise, the population for the 2019 SED consists of all individuals receiving a research doctorate in the 12-month period beginning 1 July 2018 and ending 30 June 2019. A research doctorate is a doctoral degree that (1) requires completion of an original intellectual contribution in the form of a dissertation or an equivalent culminating project (e.g., musical composition) and (2) is not primarily intended as a degree for the practice of a profession. The most common research doctorate degree is the Ph.D. Recipients of professional doctoral degrees only, such as MD, DDS, JD, DPharm, and PsyD, are not included in the SED. The 2018 and 2019 SED are expected to include about 580 separately reporting doctoral programs from among approximately 455 eligible research doctorate-granting institutions. 4. Estimate of Burden: A total response rate of 90% of the 55,006 persons who earned a research doctorate from a U.S. institution was obtained in academic year 2015. This level of response rate has been consistent for several years. Based on the historical trend, in 2018 approximately 58,000 individuals are expected to receive VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:55 Sep 15, 2016 Jkt 238001 research doctorates from U.S. institutions. Using the past response rate, the number of SED respondents in 2018 is estimated to be 52,200 (58,000 doctorate recipients × 0.90 response rate). Similarly, the number of individuals expected to earn research doctorates in 2019 is estimated to be about 59,000; hence, the number of respondents in 2019 is estimated to be 53,100 (59,000 × 0.90). Based on the average Web survey completion time for the 2017 SED (19 minutes) and the extension of a few questions to an additional subset of respondents, NSF estimates that, on average, 21 minutes per respondent will be required to complete the 2018 or 2019 SED questionnaire. The annual respondent burden for completing the SED is therefore estimated at 18,270 hours in 2018 (52,200 respondents × 21 minutes) and 18,585 hours in 2019 (based on 53,100 respondents). In addition to the actual questionnaire, the SED requires the collection of administrative data from participating academic institutions. The Institutional Coordinator at the institution helps distribute the Web survey link (and paper surveys when necessary), track survey completions, and submit information to the SED survey contractor. Based on focus groups conducted with Institutional Coordinators, it is estimated that the SED demands no more than 1% of the Institutional Coordinator’s time over the course of a year, which computes to 20 hours per year per Institutional Coordinator (40 hours per week × 50 weeks per year × .01). With about 580 programs expected to participate in the SED in 2018 and 2019, the estimated annual burden to Institutional Coordinators of administering the SED is 11,600 hours. Therefore, the total annual information burden for the SED is estimated to be 29,870 hours in 2018 (18,270 + 11,600) and 30,185 hours in 2019 (18,585 + 11,600). This is higher than the last annual estimate approved by OMB due to the increased number of respondents (doctorate recipients) and the increased number of survey questions being asked of each respondent.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On June 30, 2016, the petitioner requested 
that the NRC take action with regard to Indian Point Nuclear Generating 
Unit Nos. 2 and 3 (ADAMS Accession No. ML16187A186). The petitioner 
requested that the NRC take the following enforcement actions:

[[Page 63811]]

    1. Issue an Order requiring the Indian Point licensee to inspect 
the reactor vessel baffle-former bolts and to install the downflow to 
upflow modification on Unit 2 during its next refueling outage;
    2. Issue a Demand for Information requiring the Indian Point 
licensee to submit an operability determination to the agency regarding 
continued operation of Unit 3 until its reactor vessel baffle-former 
bolts can be inspected per Material Reliability Project-227-A; and
    3. Issue a Demand for Information requiring the Indian Point 
licensee to submit an evaluation of the performance, role and operating 
experience of the metal impact monitoring system in detecting and 
responding to indications of loose parts (such as broken baffle bolts) 
within the reactor coolant system.
    As the basis for this request, the petitioner cited Licensee Event 
Report 2016-004-00 ``Unanalyzed Condition due to Degraded Reactor 
Baffle-Former Bolts,'' submitted by the licensee on May 31, 2016 (ADAMS 
Accession No. ML16159A219) that describes an event where there was an 
unanalyzed condition due to degraded reactor vessel baffle-former bolts 
at Indian Point Unit 2, which is reportable under Sec.  
50.73(a)(2)(ii)(B) of title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 
CFR). Furthermore, the petitioner states that (1) an order is the 
proper means for ensuring that the bolts are inspected and that the 
downflow to upflow modification is installed during the next refueling 
outage at Indian Point Unit 2; (2) Indian Point Unit 3 is potentially 
operating with degraded baffle-former bolts and an operability 
determination is the mechanism established by the NRC to properly 
evaluate situations such as this; and (3) the metal impact monitoring 
system as described in the Updated Final Safety Analysis Report, has 
the potential to act as an alternate monitoring system to identify 
degraded baffle-former bolts, yet neither the NRC nor the licensee have 
referred to this system in publicly available documents relating to 
this issue.
    The request is being treated pursuant to Section 2.206 of Title 10 
of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR) of the Commission's 
regulations. The request has been referred to the Director of the 
Office of Nuclear Reactor Regulation. As provided by 10 CFR 2.206, 
appropriate action will be taken on this petition within a reasonable 
time. The petitioner met with the Petition Review Board on July 28, 
2016, to discuss the petition; the transcript of that meeting is an 
additional supplement to the petition (ADAMS Accession No. 
ML16215A391).

    Dated at Rockville, Maryland, this 7th day of September 2016.
