Abstract The Census Bureau conducts the SIPP which is a household-based survey PO 00000 Frm 00002 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 designed as a continuous series of national panels. New panels are introduced every few years with each panel usually having durations of one to five years. Respondents are interviewed at 4-month intervals or ‘‘waves’’ over the life of the panel. The survey is molded around a central ‘‘core’’ of labor force and income questions that remain fixed throughout the life of the panel. The core is supplemented with questions designed to address specific needs, such as obtaining information on welfare reform and to identify individuals in SIPP sample households who were temporarily or permanently relocated due to Hurricane Katrina. These supplemental questions are included with the core and are referred to as a ‘‘topical module.’’ The SIPP represents a source of information for a wide variety of topics and allows information for separate topics to be integrated to form a single, unified database so that the interaction between tax, transfer, and other government and private policies can be examined. Government domestic-policy formulators depend heavily upon the SIPP information concerning the distribution of income received directly as money or indirectly as in-kind benefits and the effect of tax and transfer programs on this distribution. They also need improved and expanded data on the income and general economic and financial situation of the U.S. population. The SIPP has provided thesekinds of data on a continuing basis since 1983 permitting levels of economic well-being and changes in these levels to be measured over time. The 2004 Panel is currently scheduled for 5 years and will include 15 waves of interviewing, which began in February 2004. The 2004 Panel is scheduled for 5 years because of the reauthoring of the instrument and reengineering of the post data collection processing systems for the 2009 Panel. Approximately 62,000 households were selected for the 2004 Panel, of which, 46,500 were interviewed. We estimate that each household will contain 2.1 people 15 years of age or older, yielding 97,650 interviews in Wave 1 and subsequent waves. Interviews take 30 minutes on average. Three waves of interviewing will occur in the 2004 SIPP Panel during FY 2006. The total annual burden for 2004 Panel SIPP interviews will be 146,475 hours in FY 2006. The topical modules for the 2004 Panel Wave 8 collect information about: • Welfare Reform • Hurricane Katrina Questions Wave 8 interviews will be conducted from June 2006 through September 2006. E:\FR\FM\04NON1.SGM 04NON1 Federal Register / Vol. 70, No. 213 / Friday, November 4, 2005 / Notices A 10-minute reinterview of 3,100 people is conducted at each wave to ensure the accuracy of responses. Reinterviews will require an additional 1,553 burden hours in FY 2006. II. Method of Collection The SIPP is designed as a continuing series of national panels of interviewed households that are introduced every few years with each panel having durations of 1 to 5 years. All household members 15 years old or over are interviewed using regular proxyrespondent rules. During the 2004 Panel, respondents are interviewed a total of 15 times (15 waves) at 4-month intervals making the SIPP a longitudinal survey. Sample people (all household members present at the time of the first interview) who move within the country and reasonably close to a SIPP primary sampling unit will be followed and interviewed at their new address. Individuals 15 years old or over who enter the household after Wave 1 will be interviewed; however, if these individuals move, they are not followed unless they happen to move along with a Wave 1 sample individual.

Petitioners claimed interested party status under section 771(9)(C) of the Act as U.S. producers of a domestic like product. We received a complete substantive response from petitioners within the 30day deadline specified in 19 C.F.R. § 351.218(d)(3)(i). However, we did not receive responses from any respondent interested parties. As a result, pursuant to section 751(c)(3)(B) of the Act and 19 C.F.R. § 351.218(e)(1)(ii)(C)(2), the Department conducted expedited sunset reviews of the orders. Import Administration, International Trade Administration, Department of Commerce. SUMMARY: On July 1, 2005, the Department of Commerce (the Department) initiated sunset reviews of the antidumping duty orders on forged stainless steel flanges (flanges) from India and Taiwan, pursuant to section 751(c) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act). On the basis of the notice of intent to participate and an adequate substantive response filed on behalf of domestic interested parties and no responses from respondent interested parties, the Department conducted expedited sunset reviews. As a result of these sunset reviews, the Department finds that revocation of the antidumping duty orders on flanges from India and Taiwan would likely lead to continuation or recurrence of dumping at the levels listed below in the section entitled ‘‘Final Results of Reviews.’’ EFFECTIVE DATE: November 4, 2005.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Scope of the Orders The products covered by these orders are certain forged stainless steel flanges, both finished and not finished, generally manufactured to specification ASTM A–182, and made in alloys such as 304, 304L, 316, and 316L. The scope includes five general types of flanges. They are weld–neck, used for butt–weld line connections; threaded, used for threaded line connections; slip–on and lap joint, used with stub–ends/ butt– weld line connections; socket weld, used to fit pipe into a machined recession; and blind, used to seal off a line. The sizes of the flanges within the scope range generally from one to six inches; however, all sizes of the above– described merchandise are included in the scope. Specifically excluded from the scope of these orders are cast stainless steel flanges. Cast stainless steel flanges generally are manufactured to specification ASTM A–351. The flanges subject to these orders are currently classifiable under subheadings 7307.21.1000 and 7307.21.5000 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS). Although the HTSUS subheading is provided for convenience and customs purposes, the written description of the merchandise under review is dispositive of whether or not the merchandise is covered by the scope of the orders. These sunset reviews cover imports from all manufacturers and exporters of flanges from India and Taiwan except Viraj Forgings, Ltd., for which the order on flanges from India was revoked. Background On July 1, 2005, the Department initiated sunset reviews of the antidumping duty orders on flanges from India and Taiwan pursuant to section 751(c) of the Act. See Initiation of Five-year (‘‘Sunset’’) Reviews, 70 FR 38101 (July 1, 2005).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION

I. Abstract

    The Census Bureau conducts the SIPP which is a household-based 
survey designed as a continuous series of national panels. New panels 
are introduced every few years with each panel usually having durations 
of one to five years. Respondents are interviewed at 4-month intervals 
or ``waves'' over the life of the panel. The survey is molded around a 
central ``core'' of labor force and income questions that remain fixed 
throughout the life of the panel. The core is supplemented with 
questions designed to address specific needs, such as obtaining 
information on welfare reform and to identify individuals in SIPP 
sample households who were temporarily or permanently relocated due to 
Hurricane Katrina. These supplemental questions are included with the 
core and are referred to as a ``topical module.''
    The SIPP represents a source of information for a wide variety of 
topics and allows information for separate topics to be integrated to 
form a single, unified database so that the interaction between tax, 
transfer, and other government and private policies can be examined. 
Government domestic-policy formulators depend heavily upon the SIPP 
information concerning the distribution of income received directly as 
money or indirectly as in-kind benefits and the effect of tax and 
transfer programs on this distribution. They also need improved and 
expanded data on the income and general economic and financial 
situation of the U.S. population. The SIPP has provided thesekinds of 
data on a continuing basis since 1983 permitting levels of economic 
well-being and changes in these levels to be measured over time.
    The 2004 Panel is currently scheduled for 5 years and will include 
15 waves of interviewing, which began in February 2004. The 2004 Panel 
is scheduled for 5 years because of the re-authoring of the instrument 
and re-engineering of the post data collection processing systems for 
the 2009 Panel. Approximately 62,000 households were selected for the 
2004 Panel, of which, 46,500 were interviewed. We estimate that each 
household will contain 2.1 people 15 years of age or older, yielding 
97,650 interviews in Wave 1 and subsequent waves. Interviews take 30 
minutes on average. Three waves of interviewing will occur in the 2004 
SIPP Panel during FY 2006. The total annual burden for 2004 Panel SIPP 
interviews will be 146,475 hours in FY 2006.
    The topical modules for the 2004 Panel Wave 8 collect information 
about:
     Welfare Reform
     Hurricane Katrina Questions
    Wave 8 interviews will be conducted from June 2006 through 
September 2006.

[[Page 67137]]

    A 10-minute reinterview of 3,100 people is conducted at each wave 
to ensure the accuracy of responses. Reinterviews will require an 
additional 1,553 burden hours in FY 2006.

II. Method of Collection

    The SIPP is designed as a continuing series of national panels of 
interviewed households that are introduced every few years with each 
panel having durations of 1 to 5 years. All household members 15 years 
old or over are interviewed using regular proxy-respondent rules. 
During the 2004 Panel, respondents are interviewed a total of 15 times 
(15 waves) at 4-month intervals making the SIPP a longitudinal survey. 
Sample people (all household members present at the time of the first 
interview) who move within the country and reasonably close to a SIPP 
primary sampling unit will be followed and interviewed at their new 
address. Individuals 15 years old or over who enter the household after 
Wave 1 will be interviewed; however, if these individuals move, they 
are not followed unless they happen to move along with a Wave 1 sample 
individual.
