Abstract: The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is seeking renewal of a generic information collection request (ICR) for the conduct of focus groups and one-on-one interviews primarily related to survey development for economics projects. Focus groups are groups of individuals brought together for moderated discussions on a specific topic or issue. These groups are typically formed to gain insight and understanding of attitudes and perceptions held by the public surrounding a particular issue. One-on-one interviews, as the term implies, are individual interviews in which a respondent is generally asked to review materials and provide feedback on their content and design as well as the thought processes that the materials invoke. Focus groups and oneon-one interviews (referred to collectively as ‘‘focus groups’’) used as a qualitative research tool have three major purposes: • To better understand respondents’ attitudes, perceptions and emotions in response to specific topics and concepts; • to obtain respondent information useful for better defining variables and measures in later quantitative studies; and • to further explore findings obtained from quantitative studies. Through these focus groups, the Agency will be able to gain a more indepth understanding of the public’s attitudes, beliefs, motivations and feelings regarding specific issues and VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:40 Sep 21, 2018 Jkt 244001 will provide invaluable information regarding the quality of draft survey instruments. Focus group discussions are necessary and important steps in the design of a quality survey. The target population for the focus group discussions will vary by project, but will generally include members of the public. Participation in the focus groups will be completely voluntary. Each focus group will fully conform to federal regulations—specifically the Privacy Act of 1974 (5 U.S.C. 552a), the Hawkins-Stafford Amendments of 1988 (Pub. L. 100–297), and the Computer Security Act of 1987. Form numbers: None. Respondents/affected entities: Individuals. Respondent’s obligation to respond: Voluntary. Estimated number of respondents: 864 (total) over three years or 288 per year. Frequency of response: 1. Total estimated burden: 1,728 hours total or 576 per year. Burden is defined at 5 CFR 1320.03(b). Total estimated cost: $20,920 (per year), includes $0 annualized capital or operation & maintenance costs. Changes in the estimates: There is a decrease of 1,017 hours in the total estimated respondent burden compared with the ICR currently approved by OMB. This decrease is based on new estimates of projected use of this ICR for focus groups for the next three years provided by the program offices at EPA.
