SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION
: Under the
Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (PRA)
(44 U.S.C. 3501–3520), Federal agencies
must obtain approval from the Office of
Management and Budget (OMB) for each
collection of information they conduct
or sponsor. In addition, the PRA also
requires Federal agencies to provide a
60-day notice in the Federal Register
concerning each proposed collection of
information, including each new
proposed collection, each proposed
extension of existing collection of
information, and each reinstatement of
previously approved information
collection before submitting the
collection to the OMB for approval. To
comply with this requirement, we are
publishing this notice of a proposed
data collection as described below.
The OMB is particularly interested in
comments that will help:
1. Evaluate whether the proposed
collection of information is necessary
for the proper performance of the
functions of the agency, including
whether the information will have
practical utility;
2. Evaluate the accuracy of the
agency’s estimate of the burden of the
proposed collection of information,
including the validity of the
methodology and assumptions used;
3. Enhance the quality, utility, and
clarity of the information to be
collected;
4. Minimize the burden of the
collection of information on those who
are to respond, including through the
use of appropriate automated,
electronic, mechanical, or other
technological collection techniques or
other forms of information technology,
e.g., permitting electronic submissions
of responses; and
5. Assess information collection costs.
Proposed Project
National Health Interview Survey
(NHIS) (OMB Control No. 0920–0214,
Exp. 12/31/2023)—Revision — National
Center for Health Statistics (NCHS),
Centers for Disease Control and
Prevention (CDC).
Background and Brief Description
Section 306 of the Public Health
Service (PHS) Act (42 U.S.C.), as
amended, authorizes that the Secretary
of Health and Human Services (HHS),
acting through NCHS, shall collect
statistics on the extent and nature of
illness and disability of the population
of the United States. The annual
National Health Interview Survey
(NHIS) is a major source of general
statistics on the health of the U.S.
population and has been in the field
continuously since 1957. This voluntary
and confidential household-based
survey collects demographic and health-
related information from a nationally
representative sample of households
and noninstitutionalized, civilian
persons throughout the country. NHIS
data have long been used by
government, academic, and private
researchers to evaluate both general
health and specific issues, such as
smoking, diabetes, health care coverage,
and access to health care. The survey is
also a leading source of data for the
Congressionally-mandated ‘‘Health US’’
and related publications, as well as the
single most important source of
statistics to track progress toward HHS
health objectives.
The NHIS sample adult and sample
child questionnaires include annual
core content that is scheduled to be
fielded in the survey every year, rotating
content that is fielded periodically,
emerging content to address new topics
of growing interest, and sponsored
content that is fielded when external
funding is available. Rotating sample
adult and sample child core content on
service utilization that was on the NHIS
in 2023 will rotate off in 2024. Content
on chronic pain and preventive services
will also rotate off the sample adult
core, and content on stressful life events
will rotate off the sample child core.
The 2024 sample adult rotating core will
include items on health-related
behaviors including smoking history
and cessation, alcohol use, fatigue,
physical activity, walking, doctor’s
advice to exercise, and sleep—content
previously fielded on the 2022 NHIS. It
will also include content on allergies
and other health conditions and
psychological distress, content that was
previously fielded in 2021. The 2024
sample child rotating core will include
questions on health-related behaviors
including physical activity,
neighborhood characteristics, sleep,
screen time, and height and weight
which were previously fielded in 2022.
Sponsored content on vision and
hearing will be removed from both the
sample adult and sample child
questionnaires. Sponsored content on
arthritis will be removed from the
sample adult questionnaire. Sponsored
content on social support and stressful
life events will be removed from the
sample child questionnaire. Sponsored
content on cancer control and
immunizations will remain, but the
specific questions will change.
Sponsored cancer control content on
breast, prostate, and colorectal cancer
screening, family history of cancers, and
genetic testing for cancer risk will be
removed from the sample adult
questionnaire. Sponsored cancer control
content in the 2024 NHIS sample adult
questionnaire will focus on cigarette
smoking history, lung cancer screening,
environment for walking, and sun
safety, using similar questions that were
used in the 2020 NHIS. Sponsored
content for the 2024 NHIS sample adult
and sample child questionnaire will
also include questions about taste and
smell that are similar to content
included in the 2021 NHIS. Sponsored
content on social support and loneliness
will also be added to the 2024 NHIS
sample adult questionnaire.
Like in past years, and in accordance
with the 1995 initiative to increase the
integration of surveys within the DHHS,
respondents to the 2021 NHIS will serve
as the sampling frame for the Medical
Expenditure Panel Survey conducted by
the Agency for Healthcare Research and
Quality. A subsample of NHIS
respondents and/or members of
commercial survey panels may be
identified to participate in short, web-
based methodological and cognitive
testing activities to evaluate the
questionnaire and/or inform the
development of new rotating and
sponsored content using web and/or
mail survey tools. In addition,
subsamples of NHIS respondents may
be recontacted by web, phone, or mail
to ask follow-up questions on topics that
are already included in the NHIS. The
NHIS-Teen is a follow-back survey of
adolescents that was fielded from 2021
to 2023 and may be fielded again
between 2024 and 2026 if funding is
available. The NHIS also includes
content that is used to benchmark
estimates and calibrate survey weights
from probability-based online
commercial survey panels as part of the
NCHS Rapid Surveys System.
CDC requests OMB approval for an
estimated 39,608 annual burden hours
to collect from 2024–2026. There is no
cost to the respondents other than their
time to participate.

Proposed Project
Noise Exposures and Hearing Loss in
the Oil and Gas Extraction Industry—
New—National Institute for
Occupational Safety and Health
(NIOSH), Centers for Disease Control
and Prevention (CDC).
Background and Brief Description
Oil and gas extraction (OGE) workers
play an important role in supporting the
United States economy and help fulfill
the energy needs of Americans and
American businesses. OGE workers
have significant risks for a variety of
exposures at oil and gas well sites.
There has been no significant
occupational noise exposure research in
the United States onshore upstream
OGE sector. This proposed project will
characterize relationships between noise
exposure, chemical exposures, hearing
loss, and hearing loss prevention
practices within the onshore OGE
industry. Primary data will be collected
using three approaches. First,
researchers will collect direct
measurements of noise and ototoxic
chemicals on job sites, including
personal exposure assessments of OGE
workers. Second, researchers will use a
questionnaire to collect information on
noise and chemical exposures, hearing
loss, and associated factors among OGE
workers. Third, audiometry tests
performed by NIOSH will be offered to
industry partners to further understand
extent of hearing loss amongst OGE
workers.
CDC requests OMB approval for an
estimated 106 annual burden hours.
There is no cost to respondents other
than their time to participate.
