Background and Brief Description Studies have reported that law enforcement officers have high rates of non-fatal injuries and illnesses as compared to the general worker population. As law enforcement officers undertake many critical public safety activities and are tasked with protecting the safety and health of the public, it follows that understanding and preventing injuries among law enforcement officers will have a benefit reaching beyond the workers to the general public. As mandated in the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 (Pub. L. 91–596), the mission of NIOSH is to conduct research and investigations on occupational safety and health. Related to this mission, the purpose of this project is to conduct research that will provide a detailed description of nonfatal occupational injuries incurred by law enforcement officers. This information will offer detailed insight into events that lead to the largest number of nonfatal injuries among law enforcement officers. The project will use two related data sources. The first source is data abstracted from medical records of law enforcement officers treated in a nationally stratified sample of emergency departments. These data are routinely collected through the occupational supplement to the National Electronic Injury Surveillance System (NEISS-Work). The second data source, for which NIOSH is seeking OMB approval for three years, is responses to telephone interview surveys of the injured and exposed law enforcement officers identified within NEISS-Work. The proposed telephone interview surveys will supplement NEISS-Work data with an extensive description of law enforcement officer injuries and exposures, including worker characteristics, injury types, injury circumstances, and injury outcomes. Previous reports describing occupational injuries to law enforcement officers provide limited details on specific regions or subsegments of the population. As compared to these earlier studies, the scope of the telephone interview data will be broader as it includes sampled cases nationwide. Results from the telephone interviews will be weighted and reported as national estimates. The sample size for the telephone interview survey is estimated to be approximately 300 law enforcement officers annually for the proposed three year duration of the study. This is based on the number of law enforcement officers identified in previous years of NEISS-Work data and a 30% response rate that is comparable to the rate of previously conducted National Electronic Injury Surveillance System telephone interview studies. Each telephone interview will take approximately 30 minutes to complete, resulting in an annualized burden estimate of 150 hours. Using the routine NEISS-Work data, an analysis of all identified EMS workers will be performed to determine if there are differences between the telephone interview responder and non-responder groups. The Division of Safety Research (DSR) within NIOSH is conducting this project. DSR has a strong interest in improving surveillance of law enforcement officer injuries to provide the information necessary for effectively targeting and implementing prevention efforts and, consequently, reducing occupational injuries to law enforcement officers. The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) will also contribute to this project, as they are responsible for coordinating the collection of all NEISS-Work data and for overseeing the collection of all telephone interview data. Annual Burden Hours are estimated to be 150. There is no cost to respondents other than their time.

ADDRESSES: 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 SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke at the National Institutes of Health implemented the SDY Case Registry in 2015. Standardized data collected through the SDY Case Registry has been used by the NIH and CDC awardees to generate estimates of the incidence of SDY; to elucidate risk factors; and to develop evidence-based prevention strategies for SDY. The SDY Registry also creates infrastructure for future research about previously unknown or unrecognized risk factors for, and causes of, these deaths. This information collection request is to continue the SDY Registry. By continuing the prior work of the SDY Registry, the information collected under this request will allow CDC to provide technical assistance to awardees so they can improve their jurisdiction’s information on SDY. This includes two additions to their routine Child Death Review (CDR) program: (1) Entering SDY information from existing data sources (e.g., medical records, autopsy reports) used during CDR review into the established web-based NCFRP Case Reporting System; and (2) convening clinicians with three different types of expertise (pediatric cardiology; pediatric neurology or epileptology; and forensic pathology) to conduct advanced clinical reviews of a subset of SDY cases to allow for a more thorough review of information compiled and to generate additional data about the classification of the death. The intended result will be data that can establish incidence and guide program and policy decisions at the state/jurisdiction and local levels. CDC estimates that the participating states/jurisdictions will collect data on approximately 739 SDY cases per year. For participating states/jurisdictions, burden is estimated for reporting required case information. Based on historical program information, it is estimated that approximately half (370) of the 739 estimated SDY cases each year will undergo an advanced clinical review and classification of cause by a team of three medical experts. OMB approval is requested for three years. The total estimated annual burden is 521 hours. There are no costs to respondents other than their time. 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, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; 3.

Background and Brief Description Since 2010, the National Quitline Data Warehouse (NQDW) has collected a core set of information from the 50 U.S. states, the District of Columbia, Guam, and Puerto Rico regarding what services telephone quitlines offer to tobacco users as well as the number and type of tobacco users who receive services from telephone quitlines. The data collection was modified in 2015 to collect data from the The Asian Smokers’ Quitline (ASQ) in addition to the other 53 states/territories that provide data, and included five new questions to the NQDW Intake Questionnaire to help CDC and states tailor quitline services to the needs of its callers. The NQDW provides data on the general smoking population who contact their state quitlines, but also allows for collections of information about key subgroups of tobacco users who contact state quitlines to better support cessation services. Data is collected on tobacco users who received service from state telephone quitlines from all funded U.S. states, territories and the Asian Smokers’ Quitline (ASQ) through the NQDW Intake Questionnaire. The NQDW SevenMonth Follow-up Questionnaire will be administered to tobacco users who received services from the ASQ only, and is no longer collected from other E:\FR\FM\06NON1.SGM 06NON1

Proposed Project

    Sudden Death in the Young Registry--Revision--National Center for 
Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (NCCDPHP) Centers for 
Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Background and Brief Description

    Sudden Death in the Young (SDY) is defined as a sudden and 
unexpected death among an infant, child, or young adults (up to age 
20), which is not explained by homicide, suicide, overdose, or the 
result of an external cause that was the only and obvious reason for 
the fatal injury, or terminal illnesses. Injury deaths where there may 
have been an initiating natural cause (e.g., drowning or death of the 
driver in a motor vehicle accident, which may have been triggered by an 
underlying cardiac or neurological condition) are also included in the 
definition.
    SDY deaths are not systematically monitored and estimates of the 
annual incidence of SDY vary due to differences in definitions, 
inconsistencies in classifying cause, variable age and study 
populations, and differing case ascertainment methodologies. Because 
standardized information has not been collected on the incidence, 
causes, and risk factors, developing evidence-based prevention measures 
has been challenging.
    To address these gaps, CDC, in collaboration with the National 
Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute and the National Institute of 
Neurological Disorders and Stroke at the National Institutes of Health 
implemented the SDY Case Registry in 2015. Standardized data collected 
through the SDY Case Registry has been used by the NIH and CDC awardees 
to generate estimates of the incidence of SDY; to elucidate risk 
factors; and to develop evidence-based prevention strategies for SDY. 
The SDY Registry also creates infrastructure for future research about 
previously unknown or unrecognized risk factors for, and causes of, 
these deaths.
    This information collection request is to continue the SDY 
Registry. By continuing the prior work of the SDY Registry, the 
information collected under this request will allow CDC to provide 
technical assistance to awardees so they can improve their 
jurisdiction's information on SDY. This includes two additions to their 
routine Child Death Review (CDR) program: (1) Entering SDY information 
from existing data sources (e.g., medical records, autopsy reports) 
used during CDR review into the established web-based NCFRP Case 
Reporting System; and (2) convening clinicians with three different 
types of expertise (pediatric cardiology; pediatric neurology or 
epileptology; and forensic pathology) to conduct advanced clinical 
reviews of a subset of SDY cases to allow for a more thorough review of 
information compiled and to generate additional data about the 
classification of the death. The intended result will be data that can 
establish incidence and guide program and policy decisions at the 
state/jurisdiction and local levels.
    CDC estimates that the participating states/jurisdictions will 
collect data on approximately 739 SDY cases per year. For participating 
states/jurisdictions, burden is estimated for reporting required case 
information. Based on historical program information, it is estimated 
that approximately half (370) of the 739 estimated SDY cases each year 
will undergo an advanced clinical review and classification of cause by 
a team of three medical experts.
    OMB approval is requested for three years. The total estimated 
annual burden is 521 hours. There are no costs to respondents other 
than their time.
