SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

I. Abstract

    The U.S. Census Bureau is requesting clearance for the collection 
of data concerning the Fertility Supplement to be conducted in 
conjunction with the June 2006 CPS. The Census Bureau sponsors the 
supplement questions, which were previously collected in June 2004, and 
have been asked periodically since 1971.
    This survey provides information used mainly by government and 
private analysts to project future population growth, to analyze child 
spacing, and to aid policymakers in their decisions affected by changes 
in family size and composition. Past studies have discovered noticeable 
changes in the patterns of fertility rates and the timing of the first 
birth. Potential needs for government assistance, such as aid to 
families with dependent children, child care, and maternal health care 
for single parent households, can be estimated using CPS 
characteristics matched with fertility data.

II. Method of Collection

    The fertility information will be collected by both personal visit 
and telephone interviews in conjunction with the regular June CPS 
interviewing. All interviews are conducted using computer-assisted 
interviewing.

III. Data

    OMB Number: 0607-0610.
    Form Number: There are no forms. We conduct all interviewing on 
computers.
    Type of Review: Regular.
    Affected Public: Individuals or Households.
    Estimated Number of Respondents: 30,000.
    Estimated Time Per Response: 1 minute.
    Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 500.
    Estimated Total Annual Cost: There are no costs to the respondents 
other than their time to answer the CPS questions.
    Respondents' Obligation: Voluntary.

    Legal Authority: Title 13, U.S.C. 182; and Title 29, U.S.C., 1-
9.

IV. Request for Comments

    Comments are invited on: (a) Whether the proposed collection of 
information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of 
the agency, including whether the information shall have practical 
utility; (b) the accuracy of the agency's estimate of the burden 
(including hours and cost) of the proposed collection of information; 
(c) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the 
information to be collected; and (d) ways to minimize the burden of the 
collection of information on respondents, including through the use of 
automated collection techniques or other forms of information 
technology.
    Comments submitted in response to this notice will be summarized 
and/or included in the request for the Office of Management and Budget
