Title of Collection: Postsecondary Education Quick Information System (PEQIS) 19: Services and Support Programs for Military Service Members and Veterans 2012-2013.
OMB Control Number: 1850-0733.
Type of Review: New collection.
Respondents/Affected Public: Private Sector.
Total Estimated Number of Annual Responses: 4240.
Total Estimated Number of Annual Burden Hours: 953.
Abstract: The Postsecondary Education Quick Information System Start Printed Page 21602(PEQIS) collects issue-oriented data quickly and with minimum response burden outside of NCES' large recurring surveys. The system was designed to collect and report data on key education issues at the postsecondary level, and to meet the data needs of Department of Education analysts, planners, and decision-makers when information cannot be collected quickly through NCES's large recurring surveys. The purpose of this PEQIS # 19 survey is to collect national data on support programs and services for veterans and active-duty service members at postsecondary institutions. The survey will provide the first nationally representative data about the prevalence of various types of services and support programs for military service members and veterans, with a First Look report on the results to be released in 2014. This request is for a full scale PEQIS # 19 data collection.
