Proposed Project: National Survey of Single Parent Caregivers—OMB No. 0990-NEW-OWH; HHS, Office on Women's Health.

Abstract: The National Survey of Single Parent Caregivers will measure the size, characteristics, and unmet needs of single parents providing care for an adult family member or friend. Single parent caregivers provide support services and financial assistance for two generations without the aid of a married partner. Survey results will be used to develop national estimates of the costs borne by single parent caregivers, their psychosocial burden, stress, and diminished social and leisure opportunities, and suggest policy options that mitigate the burden on single parent caregivers. The survey will be administered once under a one-year request, and will contact individuals using computer-assisted telephone interviewing (CATI) methods.Start Printed Page 55067
