Title: National Survey of Child and Adolescent Well-Being.
OMB No.: 0970-0202.
Description: This longitudinal survey provides national estimates on the characteristics related to children and fami8lies who enter the child welfare system. It has collected data from a cohort of 6,100 children who entered the child welfare system as a result of a CPS investigation between October 1999 and April 2001. Data were collected from the children themselves, their caregivers, their teachers, and their caseworkers at baseline, with follow-ups at 12 and 18 months post-baseline. The current request is to pursue a 36-month follow-up, essentially replicating the measure that were used at baseline and at the 18-month follow-up.
Respondents: Children who are clients of the child welfare system, their primary caregivers, caseworkers, and teachers.
Annual Burden Estimates:
|Instrument||Responses||Number of responses per respondent||Average burden hours per respondent||Total burden hours|
Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 20,948.
