Type of Request: Regular submission, Request for a Revision of a Currently Approved Collection.

Average Hours per Response: 5 minutes per screener response and 35– 36 minutes per topical response, which in total is approximately 40–41 minutes for households with eligible children. Burden Hours: 46,587. Needs and Uses: The National Survey of Children’s Health (NSCH) enables the Maternal and Child Health Bureau (MCHB) of the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) along with supplemental sponsoring agencies, states, and other data users to produce national and statebased estimates on the health and well- PO 00000 Frm 00015 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 11409 being of children, their families, and their communities as well as estimates of the prevalence and impact of children with special health care needs. Data will be collected using one of two modes. The first mode is a web instrument (Centurion) survey that contains the screener and topical instruments. The web instrument first will take the respondent through the screener questions. If the household screens into the study, the respondent will be taken directly into one of the three age-based topical sets of questions. The second mode is a mailout/mailback of a self-administered paper-and-pencil interviewing (PAPI) screener instrument followed by a separate mailout/mailback of a PAPI age-based topical instrument. The National Survey of Children’s Health (NSCH) is a large-scale (sample size is up to 360,000 addresses) national survey with approximately 200,000 addresses included in the base production survey and approximately 160,000 addresses included as part of eleven separate age-based, state-based, or region-based oversamples. The 2022 NSCH will include a topical incentive test. Prior cycles of the survey have included a $5 unconditional cash incentive with the initial mailing of the paper topical questionnaire. The incentive has proven to be a costeffective intervention for increasing survey response and reducing nonresponse bias. The 2022 NSCH will continue to test a $10 cash incentive, with a focus on lower responding households. As in prior cycles of the NSCH, there remain two key, non-experimental design elements. The first additional non-experimental design element is a $5 screener cash incentive mailed to 90% of sampled addresses; the remaining 10% (the control) will receive no incentive to monitor the effectiveness of the cash incentive. This incentive is designed to increase response and reduce nonresponse bias. The incentive amount was chosen based on the results of the 2021 NSCH as well as funding availability. The second additional nonexperimental design element is a data collection procedure based on the block group-level paper-only response probability used to identify households (30% of the sample) that would be more likely to respond by paper and send them a paper questionnaire in the initial mailing. Affected Public: Individuals or households. Frequency: The 2022 collection is the seventh administration of the NSCH. It is an annual survey, with a new sample drawn for each administration. Respondent’s Obligation: Voluntary. E:\FR\FM\01MRN1.SGM 01MRN1
