SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Background

    The September 2006 CPS Volunteer Supplement will be conducted at 
the request of the Corporation for National and Community Service, and 
USA Freedom Corps. The Volunteer Supplement will provide information on 
the total number of individuals in the U.S. involved in unpaid 
volunteer activities, measures of the frequency or intensity with which 
individuals volunteer, types of organizations that facilitate 
volunteerism, and the activities in which volunteers participate. It 
will also provide information on civic engagement.
    Because the Volunteer Supplement is part of the CPS, the same 
detailed demographic information collected in

[[Page 9168]]

the CPS will be available on respondents to the Supplement. Comparisons 
of volunteer activities will be possible across characteristics such as 
sex, race, age, and educational attainment of the respondent. It is 
intended that the Supplement will be conducted annually, if resources 
permit, in order to gauge changes in volunteerism.

II. Current Action

    Office of Management and Budget clearance is being sought for the 
CPS Volunteer Supplement. The September 2006 instrument includes some 
revisions made since the September 2005 instrument. A follow-up 
question to the ones that determine volunteer status was added to probe 
for volunteering for religious organizations. A question was added to 
determine the main activity a volunteer performs for his main 
organization. Two questions were added to determine if individuals had 
attended public meetings or worked with neighbors to improve something, 
and how frequently these events occurred. The questions on volunteering 
abroad and those asked of people who no longer volunteer were dropped.
    Type of Review: Reinstatement, with change, of a previously 
approved collection for which approval has expired.
    Agency: Bureau of Labor Statistics.
    Title: CPS Volunteer Supplement.
    OMB Number: 1220-0176.
    Affected Public: Households.
    Total Respondents: 58,000.
    Frequency: Annually.
    Total Responses: 112,000
    Average Time Per Response: 4 minutes.
    Estimated Total Burden Hours: 7,467 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.
