Proposed Project The National Survey of Family Growth (NSFG)—(OMB Control Number 0920–0314, Expires 05/31/2018)— 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 statistics on ‘‘family formation, growth, and dissolution,’’ as well as ‘‘determinants of health’’ and ‘‘utilization of health care’’ in the United States. This clearance request includes the data collection in 2018– 2019 for the continuous NSFG. Shriver National Institute for Child Health and Human Development (NIH/ NICHD); the Office of Population Affairs (DHHS/OPA); the Children’s Bureau (DHHS/ACF/CB); the ACF’s Office of Planning, Research, and Evaluation; the CDC’s Division of HIV/AIDS Prevention (CDC/DHAP); the CDC’s Division of STD Prevention (CDC/DSTD); the CDC’s Division of Adolescent and School Health (CDC/DASH) the CDC’s Division of Reproductive Health (CDC/DRH); the CDC’s Division of Cancer Prevention and Control (CDC/DCPC); the CDC’s Division of Nutrition, Physical Activity, and Obesity (CDC/DNPAO); and the CDC’s Division of Birth Defects and Developmental Disabilities (CDC/ DBDDD). The NSFG is also used by state and local governments (primarily for benchmarking to national data); private research and action organizations focused on men’s and women’s health, child well-being, and marriage and the family; academic researchers in the social and public health sciences; journalists, and many others. This submission requests approval to continue NSFG fieldwork for three years. While there is no questionnaire revisions requested, the two methodological studies are proposed. The total estimated annualized time burden to respondents is 6,759 hours. There is no cost to respondents other than their time. The National Survey of Family Growth (NSFG) was conducted periodically between 1973 and 2002, continuously in 2006–2010, and continuously starting in September 2011, by the National Center for Health Statistics, CDC. Each year, about 15,000 households are screened, with about 5,000 participants interviewed annually. Participation in the NSFG is voluntary and confidential. Interviews average 60 minutes for males and 80 minutes for females. The response rate since 2011 has ranged from 69 percent to 77 percent, and the cumulative response rate for the entire fieldwork period so far (September 2011 through the most current quarter which ended in May 2017) is 69 percent. The NSFG program produces descriptive statistics, which document factors associated with birth and pregnancy rates. Also, including contraception, infertility, marriage, divorce, and sexual activity, in the US household population 15–49 years (15– 44 years in survey periods before 2015); and behaviors that affect the risk of sexually transmitted diseases (STD), including HIV, and the medical care associated with contraception, infertility, and pregnancy and childbirth.

This collection of information is necessary to enable the Agency to garner customer and stakeholder feedback in an efficient, timely manner, in accordance with our commitment to improving service delivery. The information collected from our customers and stakeholders will help ensure that users have an effective, efficient, and satisfying experience with the Agency’s programs. This feedback will provide insights into customer or stakeholder perceptions, experiences and expectations, provide an early warning of issues with service, or focus attention on areas where communication, training or changes in operations might improve delivery of products or services.

Background and Brief Description

    CDC/NCEZID seeks a three-year extension of the information 
collection plan titled ``Generic Clearance for the Collection of 
Qualitative Feedback on Agency Service Delivery'' (OMB Control Number 
0920-1071). Approval of this plan will allow CDC to continue collection 
of routine customer feedback on agency service delivery efforts.
    Executive Order 12862 directs Federal agencies to provide service 
to the public that matches or exceeds the best service available in the 
private sector. In order to work continuously to ensure that our 
programs are effective and meet our customers' needs, the CDC 
(hereafter the ``Agency'') seeks to obtain OMB approval of a generic 
clearance to collect qualitative feedback on our service delivery. By 
qualitative feedback we mean information that provides useful insights 
on perceptions and opinions, but are not statistical surveys that yield 
quantitative results that can be generalized to the population of

    This collection of information is necessary to enable the Agency to 
garner customer and stakeholder feedback in an efficient, timely 
manner, in accordance with our commitment to improving service 
delivery. The information collected from our customers and stakeholders 
will help ensure that users have an effective, efficient, and 
satisfying experience with the Agency's programs. This feedback will 
provide insights into customer or stakeholder perceptions, experiences

collections will allow for ongoing, collaborative and actionable 
communications between the Agency and its customers and stakeholders. 
It will also allow feedback to contribute directly to the improvement 
of program management.
