Type of Information Collection (check justification or form 83): Extension without change of a currently approved collection. 2. The Title of the Form/Collection: Inventories: Licensed Explosives Importers, Manufacturers, Dealers, and Permittees. 3. The agency form number, if any, and the applicable component of the Department sponsoring the collection: Form number (if applicable): None. Component: Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, U.S. Department of Justice. 4. Affected public who will be asked or required to respond, as well as a brief abstract: Primary: Businesses or other forprofit. Other (if applicable): None. Abstract: The information collection entitled Inventories: Licensed Explosives Importers, Manufacturers, Dealers, and Permittees, requires that persons engaged in the explosives industry maintain explosive material inventories. The collected information is used by the government to develop audit trails during the course of a compliance inspection or criminal investigation. VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:05 May 08, 2020 Jkt 250001 5. An estimate of the total number of respondents and the amount of time estimated for an average respondent to respond: An estimated 9,433 respondents will respond to this collection annually, and it will take each respondent approximately 2 hours to provide their responses. 6. An estimate of the total public burden (in hours) associated with the collection: The estimated annual public burden associated with this collection is 18,866 hours, which is equal to 9,433 (# of responses) * 1 (# of responses per respondent) * 2 (total time in hours to respond to this IC). 7.An Explanation of the Change in Estimates: The adjustment associated with this collection is a decrease in the number of respondents by 483 and a decrease in the total burden hours by 966, since the last renewal in 2017. The recalculated burden hours for this collection corresponds with the fact that each respondent responds only once, and now take 2 hours, instead of 1 hour to complete their responses.

The agency form number, if any, and the applicable component of the Department sponsoring the collection: There is no agency form number at this time. The applicable component within the Department of Justice is the Bureau of Justice Statistics, in the Office of Justice Programs. 4. Affected public who will be asked or required to respond, as well as a brief abstract: Respondents will primarily be State, Local, or Tribal Government entities. The work under this clearance will be used to produce estimates for the incidence and prevalence of sexual victimization within correctional facilities as required under the Prison Rape Elimination Act of 2003 (Pub. L. 108–79). The Bureau of Justice Statistics uses this information in published reports and for the U.S. Congress, Executive Office of the President, practitioners, researchers, students, the media, and others interested in criminal justice statistics. In 2003, the Prison Rape Elimination Act (PREA or the Act) was signed into law. The Act requires BJS to ‘‘carry out, for each calendar year, a comprehensive statistical review and analysis of the incidence and effects of prison rape.’’ The Act further instructs BJS to collect survey data: ‘‘. . . the Bureau shall . . . use surveys and other statistical studies of current and former inmates . . .’’ To implement the Act, BJS developed the National Prison Rape Statistics Program (NPRS), which includes four separate data collection efforts: The Survey on Sexual Violence (SSV), the National Inmate Survey (NIS), the National Survey of Youth in Custody (NSYC), and the National Former Prisoner Survey (NFPS). The NIS collects information on sexual victimization self-reported by inmates held in adult correctional facilities, both prisons and jails. The NIS has been conducted three times, in 2007 (NIS–1), in 2008–09 (NIS–2), and in 2011–12 (NIS–3). Each iteration of NIS was conducted in at least one facility in all 50 states and the District of Columbia. In each iteration of the survey, inmates completed the survey using an audio computer-assisted self-interview (ACASI), whereby they heard questions and instructions via headphones and responded to the survey items via a touch-screen interface. The collection requested in this notice is the fourth iteration of the National Inmate Survey. For NIS–4, administration of the survey in prisons will take place separately from survey administration in jails. This collection VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:05 May 08, 2020 Jkt 250001 request is specific to conducting the survey in adult prison facilities. The survey instrument for the NIS–4 in Prisons is slightly modified from the previous iterations. The main difference is the addition of a new set of incidentspecific questions administered to respondents who affirmatively indicate they were sexually victimized at some point in the previous 12 months while housed in their current prison facility. These incident-specific questions will provide information to the public on the nature of sexual victimization in prisons, such as where incidents occurred within the facility, the relationship between the victim and the alleged perpetrator(s), and whether the victim suffered any injuries as a result of the incident, among other incident characteristics. 5. An estimate of the total number of respondents and the amount of time estimated for an average respondent to respond: Prior to data collection commencing in 2021, BJS will coordinate the logistics of NIS–4 survey administration with staff at state, local, and tribal correction facilities. Because the administration of this survey in jails is not included in this request, the overall number of burden hours is lower than in the last request approved in 2010. It is estimated that 246 facility respondents will devote 150 minutes of time to this coordination effort. During data collection in 2021, an estimated 77,699 state, local, and tribal adult inmates held in prisons will be interviewed, with the average interview lasting an estimated 35 minutes. 6. An estimate of the total public burden (in hours) associated with the collection: This collection was previously approved for implementation in both adult prisons and jails. The current request will only be implemented in adult prisons, thereby reducing the total number of facility staff and respondents required to participate. The total estimated NIS–4 in Prisons public burden, inclusive of facility staff and respondent burden estimates and assuming a 100% response rate, is 78,810 hours. This comprises 19,906 hours of facility staff burden (coordinating the administration, completing the facility questionnaire, and escorting inmates to and from the interviews) and 58,904 hours of respondent interviewing burden. The third iteration of NIS had around a 65% response rate, so the true burden will likely be much lower.

Overview of This Information Collection

    1. Type of Information Collection: Reinstatement, with change, of a 
previously approved collection.

[[Page 27765]]

    2. The Title of the Form/Collection: National Inmate Survey in 
Prisons (NIS-4P).
    3. The agency form number, if any, and the applicable component of 
the Department sponsoring the collection: There is no agency form 
number at this time. The applicable component within the Department of 
Justice is the Bureau of Justice Statistics, in the Office of Justice 
Programs.
    4. Affected public who will be asked or required to respond, as 
well as a brief abstract: Respondents will primarily be State, Local, 
or Tribal Government entities. The work under this clearance will be 
used to produce estimates for the incidence and prevalence of sexual 
victimization within correctional facilities as required under the 
Prison Rape Elimination Act of 2003 (Pub. L. 108-79). The Bureau of 
Justice Statistics uses this information in published reports and for 
the U.S. Congress, Executive Office of the President, practitioners, 
researchers, students, the media, and others interested in criminal 
justice statistics.
    In 2003, the Prison Rape Elimination Act (PREA or the Act) was 
signed into law. The Act requires BJS to ``carry out, for each calendar 
year, a comprehensive statistical review and analysis of the incidence 
and effects of prison rape.'' The Act further instructs BJS to collect 
survey data: ``. . . the Bureau shall . . . use surveys and other 
statistical studies of current and former inmates . . .''
    To implement the Act, BJS developed the National Prison Rape 
Statistics Program (NPRS), which includes four separate data collection 
efforts: The Survey on Sexual Violence (SSV), the National Inmate 
Survey (NIS), the National Survey of Youth in Custody (NSYC), and the 
National Former Prisoner Survey (NFPS). The NIS collects information on 
sexual victimization self-reported by inmates held in adult 
correctional facilities, both prisons and jails. The NIS has been 
conducted three times, in 2007 (NIS-1), in 2008-09 (NIS-2), and in 
2011-12 (NIS-3). Each iteration of NIS was conducted in at least one 
facility in all 50 states and the District of Columbia. In each 
iteration of the survey, inmates completed the survey using an audio 
computer-assisted self-interview (ACASI), whereby they heard questions 
and instructions via headphones and responded to the survey items via a 
touch-screen interface.
    The collection requested in this notice is the fourth iteration of 
the National Inmate Survey. For NIS-4, administration of the survey in 
prisons will take place separately from survey administration in jails. 
This collection request is specific to conducting the survey in adult 
prison facilities.
    The survey instrument for the NIS-4 in Prisons is slightly modified 
from the previous iterations. The main difference is the addition of a 
new set of incident-specific questions administered to respondents who 
affirmatively indicate they were sexually victimized at some point in 
the previous 12 months while housed in their current prison facility. 
These incident-specific questions will provide information to the 
public on the nature of sexual victimization in prisons, such as where 
incidents occurred within the facility, the relationship between the 
victim and the alleged perpetrator(s), and whether the victim suffered 
any injuries as a result of the incident, among other incident 
characteristics.
    5. An estimate of the total number of respondents and the amount of 
time estimated for an average respondent to respond: Prior to data 
collection commencing in 2021, BJS will coordinate the logistics of 
NIS-4 survey administration with staff at state, local, and tribal 
correction facilities. Because the administration of this survey in 
jails is not included in this request, the overall number of burden 
hours is lower than in the last request approved in 2010. It is 
estimated that 246 facility respondents will devote 150 minutes of time 
to this coordination effort. During data collection in 2021, an 
estimated 77,699 state, local, and tribal adult inmates held in prisons 
will be interviewed, with the average interview lasting an estimated 35 
minutes.
    6. An estimate of the total public burden (in hours) associated 
with the collection: This collection was previously approved for 
implementation in both adult prisons and jails. The current request 
will only be implemented in adult prisons, thereby reducing the total 
number of facility staff and respondents required to participate. The 
total estimated NIS-4 in Prisons public burden, inclusive of facility 
staff and respondent burden estimates and assuming a 100% response 
rate, is 78,810 hours. This comprises 19,906 hours of facility staff 
burden (coordinating the administration, completing the facility 
questionnaire, and escorting inmates to and from the interviews) and 
58,904 hours of respondent interviewing burden. The third iteration of 
NIS had around a 65% response rate, so the true burden will likely be 
much lower.
