SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Background

    The CPS Displaced Worker, Job Tenure, and Occupational Mobility 
Supplement is conducted biennially and was last collected in January 
2004.
    This supplement will gather information on workers who have lost or 
left their jobs because their plant or company closed or moved, there 
was insufficient work for them to do, or their position or shift was 
abolished. Data will be collected on the extent to which displaced 
workers received advance notice of job cutbacks or the closing of their 
plant or business. For those workers who have been reemployed, the 
supplement will gather data on the types of jobs they found and will 
compare current earnings with those from the lost job.
    The incidence and nature of occupational changes in the preceding 
year will be queried. The survey also probes for the length of time 
workers (including those who have not been displaced) have been with 
their current employer. Additional data to be collected include 
information on the receipt of unemployment compensation, the loss of 
health insurance coverage, and the length of time spent without a job.
    Because this supplement is part of the CPS, the same detailed 
demographic information collected in the CPS will be available on 
respondents to the supplement. Comparisons will be possible across 
characteristics such as sex, race, age, and educational attainment of 
the respondent.
    The information collected by this survey will be used to determine 
the size and nature of the population affected by job displacements and 
the needs and scope of programs serving adult displaced workers. It 
also will be used to assess employment stability by determining the 
length of time workers have been with their current employer and 
estimating the incidence of occupational change over the course of a 
year. Combining the questions on displacement, job tenure, and 
occupational mobility will enable analysts to obtain a more complete 
picture of employment stability.

II. Current Action

    Office of Management and Budget clearance is being sought for the 
CPS Displaced Worker, Job Tenure, and Occupational Mobility Supplement 
to the CPS.
    Type of Review: Reinstatement, without change, of a previously 
approved collection for which approval has expired.
    Agency: Bureau of Labor Statistics.
    Title: CPS Displaced Worker, Job Tenure, and Occupational Mobility 
Supplement.
    OMB Number: 1220-0104.
    Affected Public: Households.
    Total Respondents: 55,000.
    Frequency: Monthly.
    Total Responses: 55,000.
    Average Time Per Response: 8 minutes.
    Estimated Total Burden Hours: 7,333 hours.
    Total Burden Cost (capital/startup): $0.
    Total Burden Cost (operating/maintenance): $0.

III. Desired Focus of Comments

    The Bureau of Labor Statistics is particularly interested in 
comments that:
     Evaluate whether the proposed collection of information is 
necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, 
including whether the information will have practical utility;
     Evaluate the accuracy of the agency's estimate of the 
burden of the proposed collection of information, including the 
validity of the methodology and assumptions used;
     Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the 
information to be collected; and
     Minimize the burden of the collection of information on 
those who are to respond, including through the use of appropriate 
automated, electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection 
techniques or other forms of information technology, e.g., permitting 
electronic submissions of responses.
    Comments submitted in response to this notice will be summarized 
and/or included in the request for Office of Management and Budget 
approval of the information collection request; they also will become a 
matter of public record.
