Comment Request for Information Collection for the Impact Evaluation of the YouthBuild Program, Extension With Revisions
The Department of Labor (DOL or Department), as part of its continuing effort to reduce paperwork and respondent burden, conducts a preclearance consultation program to provide the public and Federal agencies with an opportunity to comment on proposed and/or continuing collections of information in accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 [44 U.S.C. 3506(c)(2)(A)] (PRA). The PRA helps ensure that respondents can provide requested data in the desired format with minimal reporting burden (time and financial resources), collection instruments are clearly understood and the impact of collection requirements on respondents can be properly assessed. Currently, ETA is soliciting comments concerning the information collection request (ICR) to collect data about the YouthBuild evaluation study participants' educational attainment, employment and earnings, involvement with the criminal justice system, and social and emotional development. This information collection request (ICR) is to obtain extended clearance for MDRC, under contract to ETA, to administer a follow-up survey 48 months after youth were randomly assigned by MDRC to the YouthBuild Evaluation's treatment or control group.
