Title: State Title IV-D Agency Caseworkers On-line Survey

OMB No.: New Collection

Description: The Office of Child Support Enforcement (OCSE) plans to reach out to as many State child support enforcement caseworkers as possible to invite them to participate in a brief on-line survey. The responses will be used to determine if OCSE needs to modify the content and the means of communicating information and training materials used to process child support enforcement cases. All information will be treated confidentially and will not be identified by State or email address of respondents. Depending on the overall response rate to the outreach efforts through the title IV-D agencies, the actual number of respondents could be much lower than the nationwide estimate of 60,000 caseworkers used for the burden estimates.
