Sunshine Act Meeting, 17697 [2017-07434]

Download as PDF mstockstill on DSK30JT082PROD with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 69 / Wednesday, April 12, 2017 / Notices be obtained by web, mail, and computer-assisted telephone interviews beginning in June 2017. Information from the SDR are used in assessing the quality and supply of the nation’s SEH personnel resources for educational institutions, private industry, and professional organizations, as well as federal, state, and local governments. A public release file of collected data, designed to protect respondent confidentiality, will be made available to researchers, reporters, and other interested persons on the Internet. The National Science Foundation Act of 1950, as subsequently amended, includes a statutory charge to ‘‘. . . provide a central clearinghouse for the collection, interpretation, and analysis of data on scientific and engineering resources, and to provide a source of information for policy formulation by other agencies of the Federal Government.’’ The SDR is designed to comply with these mandates by providing information on the supply and utilization of the nation’s doctoral level scientists and engineers. The survey data will be collected in conformance with the Confidential Information Protection and Statistical Efficiency Act of 2002 and the Federal Cybersecurity Enhancement Act of 2015. The individual’s response to the survey is voluntary. NSF will ensure that all information collected will be kept strictly confidential and will be used only for statistical purposes. Use of the Information: NSF uses the information from the SDR to prepare congressionally-mandated reports such as Women, Minorities and Persons with Disabilities in Science and Engineering and Science and Engineering Indicators. These two reports are made available, in full, on the Internet. However, summary Digests of facts and figures from these lengthy reports are made available both in print and on the Internet. Although NSF publishes statistics from the SDR in many reports, a set of statistical tables is produced online by NCSES in the biennial publication of SDR Data Tables. Expected Respondents: The NCSES within NSF enhanced and expanded the sample for the 2015 cycle of the SDR to measure employment outcomes according to the eligible SEH fine fields of degree, as captured in the Survey of Earned Doctorates. Providing reliable estimates of the survey population by fine fields required refreshing the 2013 survey sample of approximately 47,000 in 2013 with a larger sample of 120,000 in 2015. With the expanded 2015 SDR sample, NCSES can produce reliable estimates of SEH fine fields by demographic characteristics, such as gender, ethnicity, and race. The 2017 VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:45 Apr 11, 2017 Jkt 241001 SDR will maintain the 2015 expanded sample and add about 11,000 doctorates from the most recent 2014 and 2015 academic years for a total of 124,580 cases. NSF expects the overall response rate to be 75 percent. Estimate of Burden: The amount of time to complete the questionnaire may vary depending on an individual’s circumstances; however, on average it takes approximately 25 minutes. Thus, NSF estimates that the total annual burden for the 2017 SDR will be 38,932 hours (that is, 124,580 respondents at 75% response rate for 25 minutes). Comment: On 19 September 2016, NSF published in the Federal Register (81 FR 2016–64206) a 60-day notice of its intent to request renewal of this information collection authority from OMB. In that notice, NSF solicited public comments for 60 days ending 18 November 2016. One public comment was received, in support of renewing the SDR and ‘‘releasing the survey data in a more timely and predictable manner.’’ NCSES acknowledged receipt and thanked the person for their comment. Relative to the first notice, there are two substantive changes: (1) The first notice stated, ‘‘The 2017 SDR will maintain the 2015 expanded sample along with a new sample of about 10,000 doctorates . . . and will not exceed 123,000 individuals in total with U.S. earned doctorates in SEH fields.’’ After additional analysis of the sample frame of the final eligible sample from the 2015 survey and the new doctoral recipients from 2014 and 2015 academic years, the 2017 sample size is revised to 124,580 cases effectively increasing the estimated respondent burden by 494 hours. (2) The survey launch date is now planned for June 2017 rather than February 2017 to allow for additional analysis and survey design planning. Dated: April 4, 2017. Suzanne H. Plimpton, Reports Clearance Officer, National Science Foundation.
