Download as PDF 12363 Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 40 / Thursday, March 2, 2017 / Notices A proxy interview will be conducted via telephone for sampled participants who died prior to the re-contact. Information on medical conditions and overnight hospital stays since baseline will be collected. Although permission will be sought from all field feasibility test participants, hospitalization records will be obtained only for 120 participants annually (240 participants over the two-year period) to evaluate the record retrieval protocol for the study cohort among different medical facilities. An average of three hospital stays per person is anticipated among this cohort, therefore, an estimated 360 requests (120 persons × 3 stays) will be made annually. The estimated burden for hospital record provider is 20 minutes per record. OMB approval is requested for two years to conduct the feasibility component of the NHANES Longitudinal Study. Participation is voluntary and there are no costs to respondents other than their time. The total estimated annualized burden hours are 1,055.
