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.
