The target population for the panel is tobacco users aged 18 years and older in housing units and in possible, provide insight into tobacco users more generally. Replenishment will be conducted to maintain the panel with a constant number of members following existing panel recruitment and enrollment methods. FDA estimates the burden of this collection of information as follows: noninstitutionalized group quarters in the 50 states and the District of Columbia. A stratified four-stage sample design was used, with a goal of recruiting 4,000 adult tobacco users into the sample panel.

Of the total screening respondents, we expect 25 percent will respond only in the mail screening (household deemed ineligible), 65 percent will respond only in the field screening (mail screening nonrespondents), and the remaining 10 percent will respond in both the mail screening and the field screening. The latter includes eligible households from the mail screening that are subsequently field-screened to sample the panel member, and the 10 percent quality control sample of households whose mail screening ineligibility is verified through in-person screening. This assumes an estimated 10,285 household screening respondent during yearly panel replenishment (30,855 total). Replenishment panel members replace original panel members and become part of the 4,000-member panel that receives experimental/observational and panel maintenance surveys. This extension reflects an increase of 1,527 hours due to an additional year of panel replenishment and fielding of Studies B, C, and D. The estimated burden assumes 10,285 household screening respondents during yearly panel replenishment (30,855 total) and 1,400 VerDate Sep<11>2014 20:20 Oct 22, 2018 Jkt 247001 additional panel members recruited annually (4,200 total) as part of the panel replenishment effort.
