Notice of Intent To Seek Approval To Collect Information
In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (Pub. L. 104-13) and Office of Management and Budget (OMB) regulations at 5 CFR part 1320 (60 FR 44978, August 29, 1995), this Notice invites the general public and other interested parties to comment on a proposed information collection by the Economic Research Service. This information collection will provide data needed to conduct research to develop questionnaires and related instruments capable of collecting reliable and valid information on topics including: food-related knowledge, attitudes, and behavior; food assistance program participation; and customer satisfaction. To do so, ERS plans to conduct data collections that involve formative research, including such methods as cognitive interviews (individual and/or small group), and pre-testing of survey items (mailed, in-person, telephone, or Web- based pretests).
