B. STATISTICAL METHODS


Data collection methods and procedures will vary; however, the primary purpose of these collections will be for internal management purposes; there are no plans to publish or otherwise release this information.


  1. Universe and Respondent Selection


The activities under this clearance may involve samples of self-selected customers, as well as convenience samples, and quota samples, with respondents selected either to cover a broad range of customers or to include specific characteristics related to certain products or services. Results might be used to make statements representative of the universe of study, to produce statistical descriptions (careful, repeatable measurements), or to generalize the data beyond the scope of the sample. The specific sample planned for each individual collection and the method for soliciting participation will be described fully in each collection request.


The samples associated with this collection may be subjected to the same scrutiny as scientifically drawn samples where estimates are published or otherwise released to the public.



  1. Procedures for Collecting Information


Data collection methods and procedures will vary and the specifics of these will be provided with each collection request. The Agency expects to use a variety of methodologies for these collections. For example, the Agency or its contractors may use commercial survey-specific software to automate its collection and analysis of feedback. In addition to physical copies, information collection instruments may be electronically disseminated and/or posted on target pages of the Agency’s web site.

-Telephone scripts,

- Personal interviews,

-Requests for information and

- Focus groups with professional guidance and moderation may also be used.



  1. Methods to Maximize Response


Information collected under this generic clearance might yield generalizable quantitative findings; it might provide useful customer input, and it might yield data about customer opinions that can be generalized.


  1. Testing of Procedures

Pretesting may be done with internal staff, a limited number of external colleagues, and/or customers who are familiar with the programs and products. If the number of pretest respondents exceeds nine members of the public, the Agency will submit the pretest instruments for review under this generic clearance.



  1. Contacts for Statistical Aspects and Data Collection


Each program will obtain information from statisticians in the development, design, conduct, and analysis of customer/partner service surveys, when appropriate. This statistical expertise will be available from agency statisticians or from contractors and the Agency will include the names and contact information of persons consulted in the specific information collection requests submitted under this generic clearance.
