SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (PRA) (44 U.S.C. 3501–3520), Federal agencies must obtain approval from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for each collection of information they conduct or sponsor. In addition, the PRA also requires Federal agencies to provide a 60-day notice in the Federal Register concerning each proposed collection of information, including each new proposed collection, each proposed extension of existing collection of information, and each reinstatement of previously approved information collection before submitting the collection to the OMB for approval. To comply with this requirement, we are publishing this notice of a proposed data collection as described below. The OMB is particularly interested in comments that will help: 1. Evaluate whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information will have practical utility; 2. Evaluate the accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information, FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: E:\FR\FM\26DEN1.SGM 26DEN1 61001 Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 246 / Tuesday, December 26, 2017 / Notices including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; 3.

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.

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.
    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.
    The following DHHS programs fund NSFG data users: CDC/NCHS and 
eleven others;(The Eunice Kennedy 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.
