SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00054 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 This proposed information collection previously published in the Federal Register on March 14, 2018 at 83 FR 11222 with a 60-day public comment period. FEMA received 10 comments. Only one comment is related to the information collection, and states, ‘‘Whereas the abstract states, ‘FEMA proposes conducting qualitative research in the form of focus groups in order to test creative concepts developed for FEMA’s national Ready public service advertising (PSA) campaign, which aims to educate and empower Americans to prepare for and respond to emergencies. The research will help determine the clarity, relevance, and motivating appeal of the concepts prior to final production of the advertising.’ It does not state research will include the effectiveness of the PSA. Clearly it is difficult for metrics to be measured because they are not an exact science, and there is no way to measure success. What can be measured are ‘results’. Therefore PSAs should be written with the level of creativity where they generate results, then results or the effectiveness of the PSA can be measured. With no means of measurement stated in the abstract, it seems like determining if there is actual ‘qualitative testing’ will not be captured.’’ The proposed research is a qualitative research approach; the objective of the focus groups is to facilitate discussion around the creative PSA product developed and to identify patterns in response to determine whether the creative concepts are relevant to the intended audience, deliver the message clearly, and have potential to motivate behavior change. This data collection is not intended to measure whether the final produced campaign is impactful in-market; other methods, such as a survey of the campaign audience, are planned to evaluate the impact of the campaign and will be a separate data collection. The purpose of this notice is to notify the public that FEMA will submit the information collection abstracted below to the Office of Management and Budget for review and clearance. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Collection of Information Title: Ready PSA Campaign Creative Testing Research. Type of information collection: Revision of a currently approved information collection.
