The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) and the United States Department of Health and Human Services’ Center for Disease Control and Prevention, National Center on Birth Defects and Developmental Disabilities (CDC–NCBDDD) sponsor supplemental content on the NSCH. Additionally, the upcoming cycle of the NSCH plans to include five returning age-based or state-based oversamples and one new region-based oversample. The age-based oversample would be funded by the United States Department of Health and Human Services’ Center for Disease Control and Prevention, National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (CDC– NCCDPHP).

The NSCH collects information on factors related to the well-being of children, including access to health care, in-home medical care, family interactions, parental health, school and after-school experiences, and neighborhood characteristics. The goal of the 2022 NSCH is to provide HRSA MCHB, the supplemental sponsoring agencies, states, regions, and other data users with the necessary data to support the production of national estimates yearly and state- or region-based estimates with pooled samples on the health and well-being of children, their families, and their communities as well as estimates of the prevalence and impact of children with special health care needs. NSCH is seeking clearance to make the following changes: • Increased sample size—The MCHB sponsored NSCH sample plus the separately sponsored age-, state-, or region-based oversamples will be approximately 360,000 addresses for the 2022 NSCH, compared with 300,000 in 2021. The increased sample will allow individual states and agencies to produce statistically sound child health estimates in a fewer number of pooled years than if the sample were to remain the same annually, thereby resulting in more timely age-, state- and regionbased health estimates of children. • Revised questionnaire content—The NSCH questionnaires with newly proposed and revised content from the sponsors at HRSA MCHB are currently undergoing two rounds of cognitive testing. This testing request was submitted under the generic clearance package and approved by OMB.1 Based on the results, a final set of proposed new and modified content will be included in the full OMB ICR for the 2022 NSCH. • Oversamples 2—In order to inform various priorities that are otherwise not supported by the NSCH, some stakeholders have shown interest in sponsoring an oversample of particular populations as part of the annual NSCH administration. Currently, there are five states, one region, and one federal partner contributing to an oversample as part of the 2022 NSCH.

One additional state (Tennessee) will be oversampled for the first time in 2022. CDC– NCCDPHP is supporting an oversample of households with young children. Additionally, MCHB is requesting oversamples within the states of California, New York, Pennsylvania, and Wyoming. Besides the proposed changes listed above, the 2022 NSCH will proceed with the current design outlined in the previous OMB ICR package, including the use of incentives. Response rates for the unconditional monetary incentive group continues to show a statistically significant difference over the control group that did not receive an unconditional monetary incentive. As part of the initial screener mailing, 90% will include $5 and 10% will not receive an incentive. The incentive assignment to each sampled address would still be random as was done in prior cycles and approved by OMB. Additionally, the use of a $5 or $10 incentive with the initial paper topical mailing will be used. We will continue to make modifications to data collection strategies based on modeled information about paper or internet response preference. Results from prior survey cycles will continue to be used to inform the decisions made regarding future cycles of the NSCH. From prior cycles of the NSCH, using American Association for Public Opinion Research definitions of response, we can expect for the 2022 NSCH an overall screener completion rate to be about 44.5% and an overall topical completion rate to be about 36.0%.

Abstract The U.S. Census Bureau plans to request a 3-year approval from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for a new survey, the Business Pulse Survey. During the Coronavirus pandemic, the Census Bureau launched new weekly and monthly programs to measure the pandemic’s impact on the economy. The Census Bureau was commended by policy makers, media, academia, and other stakeholders on its timeliness and rapid response to their data needs to understand the impact of the pandemic on the economy. The Census Bureau has a need to collect and publish economic baseline data on a frequent, ongoing basis. The Business Pulse Survey will be a new experimental survey with biweekly data collection and publication. This continuous near real time data publication will provide a baseline of the U.S. economy and will measure change as a result of current and future economic shocks. The ongoing nature of the Business Pulse Survey is in response to stakeholder feedback on the Small Business Pulse Survey (SBPS), which was that economic baseline or ‘norms’ data would have been helpful to have in comparison to the SBPS data on pandemic impact. The Business Pulse Survey will evolve and progress to its full desired scope over time, in stages or phases. The Census Bureau plans to learn from the incremental progress of the Business Pulse Survey and make improvements to the survey as it matures. Initially, the Business Pulse Survey will be an expansion of the Small Business Pulse Survey (OMB Number: 0607–1014). The SBPS was restricted to small businesses with 1–499 employees and included only a single island territory, Puerto Rico. The Business Pulse Survey’s initial sample criteria will include all single unit employer businesses in the U.S. and U.S. Island Areas. At full scope, the Business Pulse Survey will allow for data collection from businesses across most non-farm sectors of the U.S. economy, while producing statistics on employer and nonemployer businesses across all employer size classes, as well as geographically detailed data on the fifty U.S. states, Washington DC, and the U.S. Island Areas. The Business Pulse Survey will collect the following high-level topics: • Overall current business performance or business climate • Change in operating revenues/sales/ receipts • Change in employment • Change in hours of paid employees E:\FR\FM\09NON1.SGM 09NON1

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Abstract

    Sponsored primarily by the U.S. Department of Health and Human 
Services' Health Resources Services Administration's Maternal and Child 
Health Bureau (HRSA MCHB), the National Survey of Children's Health 
(NSCH) is designed to produce data on the physical and emotional health 
of children under 18 years of age who live in the United States. The 
United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) and the United States 
Department of Health and Human Services' Center for Disease Control and 
Prevention, National Center on Birth Defects and Developmental 
Disabilities (CDC-NCBDDD) sponsor supplemental content on the NSCH. 
Additionally, the upcoming cycle of the NSCH plans to include five 
returning age-based or state-based oversamples and one new region-based 
oversample. The age-based oversample would be funded by the United 
States Department of Health and Human Services' Center for Disease 
Control and Prevention, National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention 
and Health Promotion (CDC-NCCDPHP). The state- or region-based 
oversamples would be sponsored by Children's Health Care of Atlanta, 
the State of Colorado, the State of Nebraska, the Ohio Department of 
Health, the Oregon Center for Children and Youth

[[Page 62149]]

with Special Health Care Needs, and the State of Tennessee.
    The NSCH collects information on factors related to the well-being 
of children, including access to health care, in-home medical care, 
family interactions, parental health, school and after-school 
experiences, and neighborhood characteristics. The goal of the 2022 
NSCH is to provide HRSA MCHB, the supplemental sponsoring agencies, 
states, regions, and other data users with the necessary data to 
support the production of national estimates yearly and state- or 
region-based estimates with pooled samples on the health and well-being 
of children, their families, and their communities as well as estimates 
of the prevalence and impact of children with special health care 
needs.
    NSCH is seeking clearance to make the following changes:
     Increased sample size--The MCHB sponsored NSCH sample plus 
the separately sponsored age-, state-, or region-based oversamples will 
be approximately 360,000 addresses for the 2022 NSCH, compared with 
300,000 in 2021. The increased sample will allow individual states and 
agencies to produce statistically sound child health estimates in a 
fewer number of pooled years than if the sample were to remain the same 
annually, thereby resulting in more timely age-, state- and region-
based health estimates of children.
     Revised questionnaire content--The NSCH questionnaires 
with newly proposed and revised content from the sponsors at HRSA MCHB 
are currently undergoing two rounds of cognitive testing. This testing 
request was submitted under the generic clearance package and approved 
by OMB.\1\ Based on the results, a final set of proposed new and 
modified content will be included in the full OMB ICR for the 2022 
NSCH.

     Oversamples \2\--In order to inform various priorities 
that are otherwise not supported by the NSCH, some stakeholders have 
shown interest in sponsoring an oversample of particular populations as 
part of the annual NSCH administration. Currently, there are five 
states, one region, and one federal partner contributing to an 
oversample as part of the 2022 NSCH. Four states (Colorado, Nebraska, 
Ohio, and Oregon) and the Atlanta, GA Metro Area were initially 
oversampled in 2020 or 2021 and are continuing with the option as part 
of the 2022 NSCH. One additional state (Tennessee) will be oversampled 
for the first time in 2022. CDC-NCCDPHP is supporting an oversample of 
households with young children. Additionally, MCHB is requesting 
oversamples within the states of California, New York, Pennsylvania, 
and Wyoming.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Besides the proposed changes listed above, the 2022 NSCH will 
proceed with the current design outlined in the previous OMB ICR 
package, including the use of incentives. Response rates for the 
unconditional monetary incentive group continues to show a 
statistically significant difference over the control group that did 
not receive an unconditional monetary incentive. As part of the initial 
screener mailing, 90% will include $5 and 10% will not receive an 
incentive. The incentive assignment to each sampled address would still 
be random as was done in prior cycles and approved by OMB. 
Additionally, the use of a $5 or $10 incentive with the initial paper 
topical mailing will be used. We will continue to make modifications to 
data collection strategies based on modeled information about paper or 
internet response preference. Results from prior survey cycles will 
continue to be used to inform the decisions made regarding future 
cycles of the NSCH.
    From prior cycles of the NSCH, using American Association for 
Public Opinion Research definitions of response, we can expect for the 
2022 NSCH an overall screener completion rate to be about 44.5% and an 
overall topical completion rate to be about 36.0%. This is different 
from the overall response rate, which we expect to be about 40.3%.

II. Method of Collection

    The 2022 NSCH plan for the web push data collection design includes 
approximately 70% of the production addresses receiving an initial 
invite with instructions on how to complete an English or Spanish-
language screener questionnaire via the web. Households that decide to 
complete the web-based survey will be taken through the screener 
questionnaire to determine if they are eligible for one of three 
topical instruments. Households that list at least one child who is 0 
to 17 years old in the screener are directed into a topical 
questionnaire immediately after the last screener question. If a 
household in the web push treatment group decides to complete the paper 
screener, the household may have a chance to receive an additional 
topical questionnaire incentive. This group will receive two web survey 
invitation letters requesting their participation in the survey prior 
to receiving up to two additional paper screener questionnaires in the 
second and third follow-up mailings.
    The 2022 NSCH plan for the mixed-mode data collection design 
includes up to 30% of the production addresses receiving a paper 
screener questionnaire in either the initial or the first nonresponse 
follow-up and instructions on how to complete an English or Spanish 
language screener questionnaire via the web. Households that decide to 
complete the web-based survey will follow the same screener and topical 
selection path as the web push. Households that choose to complete the 
paper screener questionnaire rather than completing the survey on the 
internet and that have eligible children will be mailed a paper topical 
questionnaire upon receipt of their completed paper screener at the 
Census Bureau's National Processing Center. If a household in the 
mixed-mode group chooses to complete the paper screener instead of 
completing the web-based screener via the internet, then the household 
may receive an additional topical questionnaire incentive. This group 
will receive both a web survey invitation letter along with a mailed 
paper screener questionnaire with either the initial invitation or the 
first follow-up and each additional nonresponse follow-up mailing.
