    The purpose of this survey is to develop and maintain a timely list 
of retail, wholesale, and service establishments where urban consumers 
shop for specified items. This information is used as the sampling 
universe for selecting establishments at which prices of specific items 
are collected and monitored for use in calculating the Consumer Price 
Index (CPI). The survey has been ongoing since 1980 and also provides 
expenditure data that allows items that are priced in the CPI to be 
properly weighted.

II. Current Action

    Office of Management and Budget clearance is being sought for the

    Since 1997, the survey has been administered quarterly via a
