Respondents will be either individuals or institutions, depending on the topic under investigation. NCSES expects to use both qualitative and quantitative procedures, in various modes (e.g., in- person, telephone, web). Up to 7,595 respondents will be contacted across all projects. No respondent will be contacted more than twice in one year under this generic clearance. Every effort will be made to use technology to limit the burden on respondents from small entities. Estimate of Burden: NCSES estimates that a total reporting and recordkeeping burden of 15,610 hours will result from activities to improve its surveys. The calculation is shown in Table 1.

In that notice, we solicited public comments for 60 days ending May 13, 2019. One comment was received, which came from Paul Clark via the web on April 19, 2019. Mr. Clark’s comment consisted of a paper concerning access to engineering education and accreditation, especially for minorities and working-class adults. We respond to Mr. Clark’s comment below. Response: NSF believes that the comment does not pertain to the collection of information under the generic clearance, which is focused on survey improvement activities. Therefore, NSF is proceeding with the clearance request. Dated: May 7, 2019. Suzanne H. Plimpton, Reports Clearance Officer, National Science Foundation.
