Proposed Project: Collection of Publication Assessment Information—New—National Center for Injury Prevention and Control (NCIPC), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

This project will collect information from Internet users after they order or download a publication from the website of the Department of Health and Human Services/Centers for Disease Control and Prevention/National Center for Injury Prevention and Control. NCIPC produces a variety of publications about injury prevention for a range of audiences, from public health professionals to the general public. Publications include reports to Congress, fact books, brochures, research articles, tool kits, and books. Most of these publications are available to the general public, and the chief distribution method is through the NCIPC website,​ncipc. On the website, people can order print copies or view electronic copies of the publications.

It is critical for NCIPC to obtain feedback from users of their publications so it can better understand who uses them and how. This will help guide the development of future publications, revisions of current ones, as well as distribution of publications. As part of the effort to gain understanding about the audiences of NCIPC publications, we will collect information through a web-based form. NCIPC website users will have the opportunity to fill out the form after Start Printed Page 47580ordering, downloading, or reading online publications through the website. The form contains questions about the demographic background of the users, how they found the website, how they plan to use the publication, their need for publications in other languages, the degree to which the publication offerings were useful to them, and space for their general comments. The results of the forms will be compiled and studied so NCIPC can better consider the needs of people who use the publications in future publication development, revisions, and distribution plans. There are no costs to respondents.
