Non-substantive change resulting from the finalized FoodAPS-2 Field Test and FoodLogger respondent training videos
This memo provides URLs for the six required and two supplemental Second National Household Food Acquisition and Purchase Survey (FoodAPS-2) Field Test training videos. As noted in the Office of Management and Budget’s (OMB) Notice of Action (NOA) dated 4/30/2022 for the Information Collection Request (ICR) for the FoodAPS-2 Field Test (ref number: 202202-0536-002), providing final versions of the training videos for review by OMB is required prior to the implementation of the FoodAPS-2 Field Test.
As detailed in Supporting Statement Part A of the ICR (ref number: 202202-0536-002), the Field Test interviewers will use these videos to train the primary respondent (PR) and any other household members who are present at the time of training, following the Initial Household Interview (Attachment G), on how to use the FoodLogger smartphone application to record information about all acquisitions of food and drink during the survey period.
The content of the required training videos follows a series of Respondent Training Scripts (Attachments V1—V6), which were included in the original submission. The videos will be shown to the primary respondent and other household members present via the interviewer’s laptop or similar electronic portable device. This training curriculum on FoodAPS-2 survey concepts and the FoodLogger covers the Food Log (Attachment R1), Profile (Attachment J), and Income (Attachment L) Questionnaires. The training on the FoodLogger also includes supplemental videos (Attachment V7 and V8), which are not required trainings, but are intended to provide additional instruction to respondents on how to enter grocery and restaurant meal acquisitions in their Food Logs. Scripts for these supplemental videos were also included in the original submission.
The videos will be hosted on the URLs provided below throughout the implementation of the Field Test and will remain publicly available until the expiration date of this ICR, 4/30/2023.
