1 Only those program enrollees agreeing to participate in the evaluation receive a Baseline interview.
2 This estimate is an added burden proportion which is an adjustment reflecting the extent to which programs typically already collect the data
items. The formula for calculating the proportion of added burden is: total number of items in the standard instrument, minus the number of core
items currently included, divided by the total number of items in the standard instrument. For the TCE Initiative’s interviews the estimates were
calculated as follows: For the Baseline interview the burden estimate = 165 times 0.64 (the proportion of added burden) = 106. For the 6-Month
interview the burden estimate = 135 times 0.73 (the proportion of added burden) = 99. For the 12-Month interview the burden estimate = 105
times 0.72 (the proportion of added burden) = 76.
3 The number of responses per respondent for the Events Tracking depends on the design of the jail diversion program and can range from a
single screening for eligibility to four separate screenings; here 2 responses represents the average number of responses per respondent based
on the experience of the previous grantees.
4 For the Person Tracking program the burden estimate was calculated as follows: 30 times 0.65 (the proportion of added burden) = 20 (see
Footnote 2 above for more information about the burden proportion).
5 Record management forms (Service Use and Arrest) are only completed for those evaluation participants who receive both a Baseline inter-
view and at least one follow-up (6- and/or 12-month) interview.
