Proposed Data Collection Submitted for Public Comment and Recommendations, 54148-54150 [2019-22082]

Download as PDF 54148 Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 196 / Wednesday, October 9, 2019 / Notices 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 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. Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and 4. Minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: are to respond, including through the use of appropriate automated, electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or other forms of information technology, e.g., permitting electronic submissions of responses. 5. Assess information collection costs. Proposed Project Application Form and Related Forms for the Operation of the National Death Index (NDI) (OMB Control No. 0920– 0215, Exp. 12/31/2019)—Revision— National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Background and Brief Description Section 306 of the Public Health Service (PHS) Act (42 U.S.C.), as amended, authorizes that the Secretary of Health and Human Services (DHHS), acting through NCHS, shall collect statistics on the extent and nature of illness and disability of the population of the United States. The National Death Index (NDI) is a national database containing identifying death record information submitted annually to NCHS by all the state vital statistics offices, beginning with deaths in 1979. Searches against the NDI file provide the states and dates of death, and the death certificate numbers of deceased study subjects. Using the NDI Plus service, researchers have the option of also receiving cause of death information for deceased subjects, thus reducing the need to request copies of death certificates from the states. The NDI Plus option currently provides the International Classification of Disease (ICD) codes for the underlying and multiple causes of death for the years 1979–2018. Health researchers must complete administrative forms in order to apply for NDI services, and submit records of study subjects for computer matching against the NDI file. A threeyear revision request is submitted to continue the use of the three administrative forms (the application form, repeat request form, and transmittal form) utilized in the operation of the National Death Index (NDI) program. These forms are submitted by NDI users when applying for use of the NDI and when actually using the service. In addition, this request includes the introduction of electronic versions that will ultimately replace the three paper documents, one of which will include a minor reduction in the number of data collection items. There is no cost to respondents except for their time. The total estimated annual burden hours are 417. While the estimated annual number of application forms has increased from 100 to 120, the revised estimate of the time required to complete the application form results in an overall net decrease by 40 burden hours from the previously approved 457 hours.

CDC seeks OMB approval for a threeyear period for this revision. In this revision CDC describes the planned testing of a redesign of the National Intimate Partner and Sexual Violence Survey (NISVS) and the approach for collecting NISVS data using multiple data collection modes and sampling strategies. More specifically, this revision is requesting: (1) Conduct feasibility testing to assess alternative design features including the sample frame, mode of response, and incentive structures that help garner participation and help reduce nonresponse. (2) Conduct experiments that inform the development of a protocol for alternative sampling and weighting methods for multi-modal data collection that will result in the ability to calculate accurate and reliable national and statelevel estimates of SV, IPV, and stalking. (3) Conduct a pilot data collection to ensure that the selected optimal alternative sampling methods and multi-modal data collection approaches for NISVS are ready for full-scale implementation. These data will be used only to inform future NISVS data collections. Results from the feasibility phase experiments may be prepared for publication, as the findings related to optimal data collection modes, sampling frames, and incentive structures are likely to be useful to other federal agencies currently conducting national data collections. No national prevalence estimates will be generated from the data collected during the NISVS redesign project. Data are analyzed using appropriate statistical software to account for the complexity of the survey design to compute weighted counts, percentages, and confidence intervals using national-level data.

Background and Brief Description

    In 2010, the National Intimate Partner and Sexual Violence 
Surveillance System (NISVSS) reported that approximately 6.9 million 
women and 5.6 million men experienced rape, physical violence and/or 
stalking by an intimate partner within the last year. The health care

billion of which is for direct medical and mental health care services. 
In order to address this important public health problem, CDC 
implemented, beginning in 2010, the National Intimate Partner and 
Sexual Violence Surveillance System that produces national and state 
level estimates of Intimate Partner Violence (IPV), Sexual Violence 
(SV) and stalking on an annual basis.
    CDC seeks OMB approval for a three-year period for this revision. 
In this revision CDC describes the planned testing of a redesign of the 
National Intimate Partner and Sexual Violence Survey (NISVS) and the 
approach for collecting NISVS data using multiple data collection modes 
and sampling strategies. More specifically, this revision is 
requesting: (1) Conduct feasibility testing to assess alternative

selected optimal alternative sampling methods and multi-modal data 
collection approaches for NISVS are ready for full-scale 
implementation.
    These data will be used only to inform future NISVS data
