Agency: U.S. Census Bureau. Title: Survey of Construction— Questionnaire for Building Permit Official. Form Number(s): SOC–QBPO. Agency Approval Number: 0607– 0125. Type of Request: Extension of a currently approved collection. Burden: 225 hours. Number of Respondents: 900. Average Hours per Response: 15 minutes. Needs and Uses: The U.S. Census Bureau requests an extension of the currently approved collection for the Questionnaire for Building Permit Official (SOC–QBPO) form. The information collected on the SOC– QBPO is necessary to carry out the sampling for the Survey of Housing Starts, Sales and Completions (OMB number 0607–0110), also known as the Survey of Construction (SOC). Government agencies and private companies use statistics from SOC to monitor and evaluate the large and dynamic housing construction industry. The Census Bureau field representatives (FRs) use the SOC– QBPO to obtain information on the operating procedures of a permit office. This enables them to locate, classify, list, and sample building permits for residential construction. These permits are used as the basis for the sample selected for SOC. The Census Bureau also uses the information to verify and update the geographic coverage of permit offices. Failure to collect this information would make it difficult, if not impossible, to classify accurately and sample building permits for the SOC. The SOC produces data for two principal economic indicators. They are: New Residential Construction (housing starts and housing completions) and New Residential Sales. Affected Public: Business or other forprofit. Frequency: Annually. Respondent’s Obligation: Voluntary. Legal Authority: Title 13 U.S.C., section 182.

    Average Hours per Response: 15 minutes.
    Needs and Uses: The U.S. Census Bureau requests an extension of the

of Construction (SOC). Government agencies and private companies use 
statistics from SOC to monitor and evaluate the large and dynamic

    Failure to collect this information would make it difficult, if not 
impossible, to classify accurately and sample building permits for the 
SOC. The SOC produces data for two principal economic indicators. They 
are: New Residential Construction (housing starts and housing 
completions) and New Residential Sales.
    Affected Public: Business or other for-profit.
    Frequency: Annually.
    Respondent's Obligation: Voluntary.
