Download as PDF khammond on DSKJM1Z7X2PROD with NOTICES 35760 Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 127 / Wednesday, July 7, 2021 / Notices 2014, 2016, and 2018. The 2020 administration of the survey was postponed due to the COVID–19 pandemic. The 2022 survey would be the ninth iteration of the SAGR survey. The first focus group assessment was conducted in 2007, with subsequent focus groups in 2009, 2011, 2013, 2015, 2017, 2019, and 2021. Information from the SAGR surveys will be used by 4 DoD policy offices, the Military Departments, the MSAS, and Congress for program evaluation and, specifically, to assess and improve policies, programs, practices, and training related to gender relations at the MSAs. OPA will provide reports to DoD policy offices, each Military Department, the MSAs, the Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS), and Congress. Affected Public: Individuals or households. Annual Burden Hours: 5,000 hours. Number of Respondents: 10,000. Responses per Respondent: 1. Annual Responses: 10,000. Average Burden per Response: 30 minutes. Frequency: Biennially. The target population of the 2022 SAGR will consist of all students at the Military Service Academies (MSAs): U.S. Military Academy (USMA), U.S. Naval Academy (USNA), and U.S. Air Force Academy (USAFA), including the Preparatory Schools. Excluded are Service Academy Students who are (1) non-citizens and (2) are visiting from another MSA. Students under 18 years of age are also excluded. Working with the MSAs, we estimate the approximate numbers of cadets and midshipmen to be 14,200. The survey will be administered to all cadets/midshipmen (i.e., a census). Based on the 2018 SAGR survey that had a 73% response rate, we estimate a 70% response rate. To achieve sufficient statistical analytical power, we will include a census of the population of interest in the study to achieve sufficient coverage. Each Academy notifies students about the survey with an electronic message explaining the overall survey process and providing them instructions on how to select a session for administration of the survey. OPA staff is on location during the survey week to brief students and administer the survey in person using a paper survey. Sessions are typically scheduled from 0700 through 1500 and follow the Academy’s class periods. Attendance is checked when a student arrives for their session (attendance is only for purposes of following up and not for identifying survey responses by individuals). Academy officials follow up with VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:44 Jul 06, 2021 Jkt 253001 students who do not appear at their designated session and reschedule accordingly. OPA staff provides an overview briefing on the purpose for the survey. Students are advised they may leave at any time after the briefing if they choose not to complete the survey. Data will be weighted, using an industry standard process, to reflect each Academy’s population as of the time of the survey. Weighting produces survey estimates of population totals, proportions, and means (as well as other statistics) that are representative of their respective populations. OPA creates variance strata so precision measures can be associated with each estimate. We produce precision measures for reporting categories using 95% confidence intervals with the goal of achieving a precision of 5% or less (e.g. 80% (+/¥5%) of cadets/midshipmen are satisfied with their training).
