Start Preamble


Under the provisions of Section 3507(a)(1)(D) of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, the National Cancer Institute (NCI), the National Institutes of Health (NIH), has submitted to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) a request to review and approve the information collection listed below. This proposed information collection was previously published in the Federal Register on March 14, 2011 (76 FR 13647) and allowed 60-days for public comment. There were no public comments in response to the notice. The purpose of this notice is to allow an additional 30 days for public comment. The National Institutes of Health may not conduct or sponsor, and the respondent is not required to respond to, an information collection that has Start Printed Page 28053been extended, revised, or implemented on or after October 1, 1995, unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number.

Proposed Collection: Title: Interactive Diet and Activity Tracking in AARP (iDATA): Biomarker Based Validation Study. Type of Information Collection Request: New. Need and Use of Information Collection: The AARP-based study is one component of a multi-center biomarker validation study project involving two other large cohorts in the United States. The iDATA study involves large cohorts and provides the necessary sample size to evaluate the measurement error structure of the diet and physical activity assessment instruments and the heterogeneity of the measurement error structure across multiple and diverse study populations. The iDATA study will include 1,500 participants from the NIH-AARP Diet and Health Study and current AARP membership. The data collection instruments adhere to The Public Health Service Act, which provides authority to the Risk Factor Monitoring and Methods Branch in the Division of Cancer Control and Population Sciences and the Division of Cancer Epidemiology and Genetics. Both divisions work to reduce cancer in the U.S. population by establishing and supporting programs for the detection, diagnosis, prevention and treatment of cancer; and by collecting, identifying, analyzing and disseminating information on cancer research, diagnosis, prevention and treatment. Dietary and physical activity data will be gathered using the instruments as detailed below. In addition, biospecimen and clinic data will be also gathered. Frequency of Response: Monthly. Affected Public: Individuals. Type of Respondents: U.S. adults (persons aged 50-74). The annual reporting burden is provided for each study component as shown in the table below. There are no Capital Costs, Operating Costs, and/or Maintenance Costs to report.
