This site displays a prototype of a “Web 2.0” version of the daily Federal Register. It is not an official legal edition of the Federal Register, and does not replace the official print version or the official electronic version on GPO’s govinfo.gov.
The documents posted on this site are XML renditions of published Federal Register documents. Each document posted on the site includes a link to the corresponding official PDF file on govinfo.gov. This prototype edition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov will remain an unofficial informational resource until the Administrative Committee of the Federal Register (ACFR) issues a regulation granting it official legal status. For complete information about, and access to, our official publications and services, go to About the Federal Register on NARA's archives.gov.
The OFR/GPO partnership is committed to presenting accurate and reliable regulatory information on FederalRegister.gov with the objective of establishing the XML-based Federal Register as an ACFR-sanctioned publication in the future. While every effort has been made to ensure that the material on FederalRegister.gov is accurately displayed, consistent with the official SGML-based PDF version on govinfo.gov, those relying on it for legal research should verify their results against an official edition of the Federal Register. Until the ACFR grants it official status, the XML rendition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov does not provide legal notice to the public or judicial notice to the courts.
The Department of Commerce will submit to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for clearance the following proposal for collection of information under the provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act (44 U.S.C. chapter 35).
Agency: U.S. Census Bureau.
Title: Annual Social and Economic Supplement to the Current Population Survey.
Form Number(s): CPS-580 (ASEC), CPS-580 (ASEC)SP, CPS-676, CPS-676(SP).
OMB Control Number: 0607-0354.
Type of Request: Revision of a currently approved collection.
Burden Hours: 32,500.
Number of Respondents: 78,000.
Average Hours per Response: 25 minutes.
Needs and Uses: The purpose of this request for review is to obtain clearance for the Annual Social and Economic Supplement (ASEC), which we will conduct in conjunction with the February, March, and April Current Population Survey (CPS). The U.S. Census Bureau has conducted this supplement annually for over 60 years. The Census Bureau, the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), and the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) sponsor this supplement.
The proposed supplement contains the same items that were in the 2009 ASEC instrument, with the exceptions described here:
(1) Additional questions are added concerning presence of mortgage, medical expenditures, child support paid, and child care paid.
(2) Questions on welfare reform (SWR1—SWR18) are no longer included.
On June 17, 2009, Congressman McDermott introduced the Measuring American Poverty Act of 2009. Under this legislation, the Census Bureau will be asked to produce estimates under a modernized poverty measure that includes several threshold and resource components that are not included in the ASEC. The new items in the ASEC for 2010 help to implement this modernized poverty measure.
Affected Public: Individuals or households.
Respondent's Obligation: Voluntary.
Legal Authority: Title 13, United States Code, section 182, and Title 29, United States Code, sections 1-9.
OMB Desk Officer: Brian Harris-Kojetin, (202) 395-7314.
