Download as PDF 85963 Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 229 / Tuesday, November 29, 2016 / Notices collaborative partners will report information to their respective health department (THRIVE awardee), and THRIVE awardees will provide reports to CDC. The monitoring and evaluation plan is based on semi-annual reports of Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) Variables, comprised primarily of deidentified or coded client-level data on demographics and services received. The M&E files will be transmitted electronically. Recognizing that THRIVE awardees and partners vary in terms of existing infrastructure, CDC has established guidelines and specifications for M&E content, but is permitting a flexible approach to electronic reporting. A similar approach will be applied to electronic transmission of the annual Funding Allocation Report (FAR). The FAR is only required for THRIVE awardees. Information collection also includes an Annual Collaborative Process and Outcome Evaluation based on semistructured interviews and completion of a questionnaire called the Annual Collaborative Assessment Tool. These information collections will allow CDC to assess how successful THRIVE awardees have been in creating, engaging, and sustaining collaborative partnerships and to understand how these partnerships contributed to achieving the goals of the project. Both tools will be submitted to CDC electronically on an annual basis. CDC will use findings to provide technical assistance to THRIVE awardees and to develop recommendations for the coordination of comprehensive HIV testing, prevention, and treatment services for MSM of color. OMB approval is requested for three years. Participation is required as a condition of THRIVE funding and there are no costs to respondents other than their time. The total estimated annualized burden hours are 1,543. ESTIMATED ANNUALIZED BURDEN HOURS Type of respondent Form name THRIVE Partners ....................

Proposed Project

    National Health Interview Survey (NHIS) (OMB No. 0920-0214, expires 
01/31/2019)--Revision--National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS), 
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Background and Brief Description

    Section 306 of the Public Health Service (PHS) Act (42 U.S.C. 
242k), as amended, authorizes that the Secretary of Health and Human 
Services (DHHS), acting through NCHS, shall collect data on the extent 
and nature of illness and disability of the population of the United 
States.
    The annual National Health Interview Survey is a major source of 
general statistics on the health of the U.S. population and has been in 
the field continuously since 1957. Clearance is sought for three years, 
to collect data from 2017 to 2019.
    This voluntary and confidential household-based survey collects 
demographic and health-related information from a nationally 
representative sample of noninstitutionalized, civilian persons and 
households throughout the country. Personal identification information 
is requested from survey respondents to facilitate linkage of survey 
data with

health-related administrative and other records. In 2017 the NHIS will 
collect information from approximately 45,000 households, which contain 
about 100,000 individuals. Information is collected using computer 
assisted personal interviews (CAPI).
    A core set of data is collected each year that remains largely 
unchanged, whereas sponsored supplements vary from year to year. The 
core set includes socio-demographic characteristics, health status, 
health care services, and health behaviors. For 2017, supplemental 
questions will be cycled in pertaining to alternative and integrative 
medicine, cognitive disability, receipt of culturally and 
linguistically appropriate health care services, epilepsy, and heart 
disease and stroke. Supplemental topics that continue or are enhanced 
from 2016 pertain to the Affordable Care Act, chronic pain, diabetes, 
disability and functioning, family food security, ABCS of heart disease 
and stroke prevention, hepatitis B/C screening, immunizations, 
smokeless tobacco and e-cigarettes, vision, and children's mental 
health. Questions from 2016 on balance, Crohn's disease and colitis, 
and blood donation have been removed. In addition to these core and 
supplemental modules, a subsample of NHIS respondents and/or members of 
commercial survey panels may be identified to participate in short, 
Web-based methodological and cognitive testing activities that will 
inform the upcoming 2018 NHIS questionnaire redesign. The aims of these 
standalone assessments include pilot testing new and/or updated 
questionnaire items, evaluating the impact of different categorical 
response option formats on answer choices, and measuring respondent 
comprehension of health care-related terms and concepts.
    In accordance with the 1995 initiative to increase the integration 
of surveys within the DHHS, respondents to the NHIS serve as the 
sampling frame for the Medical Expenditure Panel Survey conducted by 
the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality. The NHIS has long been 
used by government, academic, and private researchers to evaluate both 
general health and specific issues, such as smoking, diabetes, health 
care coverage, and access to health care. It is a leading source of 
data for the Congressionally-mandated ``Health US'' and related 
publications, as well as the single most important source of statistics 
to track progress toward the National Health Promotion and Disease 
Prevention Objectives, ``Healthy People 2020.''
    There is no cost to the respondents other than their time. The 
total estimated annualized burden hours are 49,000.
