Start Preamble


In compliance with the requirement of section 3506(c)(2)(A) of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, the National Cancer 0Institute (NCI), the National Institutes of Health (NIH) has submitted to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) a request for review and approval of the information collection listed below. This proposed information collection was previously published in the Federal Register on March 3, 2004 (vol. 51, number 226, pp. 42420-42422) and allowed 60 days for public comment. The National Institutes of Health may not conduct or sponsor, and the respondent is not required to respond to, any information collection that has been extended, revised, or implemented on or after October 1, 1995, unless it displays a currently valid OMB number.

Proposed Collection: Title: Pilot Study Evaluating the Cross-Cultural Equivalency of the Tobacco Use Supplement to the Current Population Survey (TUS-CPS). Type of Information Collection Request: New. Need and Use of Information Collection: The primary purpose of this study is to evaluate the cross-cultural equivalency of the TUS-CPS in English, Spanish, Chinese, Korean, and Vietnamese. Each version of the questionnaire will be administered to 50 native speakers. The Chinese version will be administered to both Mandarin and Cantonese speakers. Each interview will be behavior coded to ensure that respondents are interpreting the items correctly and any translation problems are identified item by item. Twenty percent of respondents will be retrospectively debriefed on the interview to determine how well the items are understood and examine whether any translation issues exist. The findings will provide valuable information concerning the clarity of the survey period to full-scale administration.

Frequency of Response: One-time study. Affected Public: Individuals. Type of Respondents: Adults who are native Chinese (Mandarin and Cantonese), Korean, Vietnamese, and Spanish speakers. The annual reporting burden is as follows:Start Printed Page 55825
