Project: 2017–2020 National Survey on Drug Use and Health: Methodological Field Tests (OMB No. 0930–0290)— Extension 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. Methodological tests will continue to be designed to examine the feasibility, VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:34 Mar 07, 2017 Jkt 241001 quality, and efficiency of new procedures or revisions to existing survey protocol. Specifically, the tests will measure the reliability and validity of certain questionnaire sections and items through multiple measurements on a set of respondents; assess new methods for gaining cooperation and participation of respondents with the goal of increasing response and decreasing potential bias in the survey estimates; and assess the impact of new sampling techniques and technologies on respondent behavior and reporting. Research will involve focus groups, cognitive laboratory testing, customer satisfaction surveys, and field tests. These methodological tests will continue to examine ways to increase data quality, lower operating costs, and gain a better understanding of sources and effects of nonsampling error on NSDUH estimates. Particular attention will be given to minimizing the impact of design changes so survey data continue to remain comparable over time. If these tests provide successful results, current procedures or data collection instruments may be revised. The number of respondents to be included in each field test will vary, depending on the nature of the subject being tested and the target population. However, the total estimated response burden is 8,225 hours. The exact number of subjects and burden hours for each test are unknown at this time, but will be clearly outlined in each individual submission.

Project: 2017-2020 National Survey on Drug Use and Health: 
Methodological Field Tests (OMB No. 0930-0290)--Extension

    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.
    Methodological tests will continue to be designed to examine the 
feasibility, quality, and efficiency of new procedures or revisions to 
existing survey protocol. Specifically, the tests will measure the 
reliability and validity of certain questionnaire sections and items 
through multiple measurements on a set of respondents; assess new 
methods for gaining cooperation and participation of respondents with 
the goal of increasing response and decreasing potential bias in the 
survey estimates; and assess the impact of new sampling techniques and 
technologies on respondent behavior and reporting. Research will 
involve focus groups, cognitive laboratory testing, customer 
satisfaction surveys, and field tests.
    These methodological tests will continue to examine ways to 
increase data quality, lower operating costs, and gain a better 
understanding of sources and effects of nonsampling error on NSDUH 
estimates. Particular attention will be given to minimizing the impact 
of design changes so survey data continue to remain comparable over 
time. If these tests provide successful results, current procedures or 
data collection instruments may be revised.
    The number of respondents to be included in each field test will 
vary, depending on the nature of the subject being tested and the 
target population. However, the total estimated response burden is 
8,225 hours. The exact number of subjects and burden hours for each 
test are unknown at this time, but will be clearly outlined in each 
individual submission. These estimated burden hours are distributed 
over three years as follows:
