Title: Weather and Society Survey and Using Quick Response Surveys to Build a Public Perception and Response Database. OMB Control Number: 0648–XXXX. Form Number(s): None. Type of Request: Regular (New information collection). Number of Respondents: 37,650. Average Hours per Response: Longitudinal surveys: .20 minutes; QRS: 10 minutes. Total Annual Burden Hours: 7,140. Needs and Uses: In alignment with the Weather Forecasting and Innovation Act of 2017 (Pub. L. 115–25), two data collections are proposed under this request. There are no other collections for which these can be merged. The first proposed information collection request is sponsored by DOC/ NOAA/National Weather Service (NWS)/Office of Science and Technology Integration (OSTI). Currently, NOAA lacks data and data collection instruments that articulate and explicate how individuals receive, interpret, and respond to NOAA information, forecasts, and warnings for severe, winter, and tropical weather hazards. Furthermore, NOAA lacks this type of data longitudinally (i.e., collected over time). Without this type of longitudinal data, NOAA, and the NWS specifically, cannot determine if it has met its mission of saving lives and property, propose societal impact performance metrics, nor demonstrate if progress or improvements have been made, as outlined in the Weather Research and Forecasting Innovation Act of 2017. This effort aims to advance the Tornado Warning Improvement and Extension Program (TWIEP)’s goal to ‘‘reduce the loss of life and economic losses from tornadoes through the development and extension of accurate, effective, and timely tornado forecasts, predictions, and warnings, including the prediction of tornadoes beyond one hour in advance (Pub. L. 115–25)’’. This work addresses NOAA’s 5-year Research and Development Vision Areas (2020– 2026) Section 1.4 (FACETs). The Weather and Society Survey also advances the findings of the National Academy of Science 2012 report, ‘‘Assessment of the NWS Modernization Program’’, in reference to NWS’ ‘‘chain of events associated with a tornado warning’’ (p52). This effort also advances the NWS Strategic Plan (2019– 2022) ‘‘Transformative Impact-Based Decision Support Services (IDSS) and Research to Operations and Operations to Research (R2O/O2R).
