Needs and Uses: At the request of the U.S. Congress, the Census Bureau plans to request clearance for the collection of data concerning the Annual Social and Economic Supplement (ASEC) to be conducted in conjunction with the March Current Population Survey (CPS). This data collection will be completely separate and independent from the ASEC conducted in February, March, and April.

This data collection will mirror that which was collected in survey year 2013, prior to the recent redesign of income and health insurance questions in 2014. The resulting data will serve to provide a baseline for comparison to data collected in February, March, and April from the 2015 ASEC, which will consist of the redesigned questions.

Affected Public: Individuals or Households.

Frequency: Annually.

Respondent's Obligation: Voluntary.

Legal Authority: Title 13, United States Code, Section 182; and Title 29, United States Code, Sections 1-9.
