SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Background

    The purpose of this survey is to develop and maintain a timely list 
of retail, wholesale, and service establishments where urban consumers 
shop for specified items. This information is used as the sampling 
universe for selecting establishments at which prices of specific items 
are collected and monitored for use in calculating the Consumer Price 
Index (CPI). The survey has been ongoing since 1980 and also provides 
expenditure data that allows items that are priced in the CPI to be 
properly weighted.

II. Current Action

    Office of Management and Budget clearance is being sought for the 
Telephone Point of Purchase Survey (TPOPS).
    Since 1997, the survey has been administered quarterly via a 
computer-assisted-telephone-interview. This survey is flexible and 
creates the possibility of introducing new products into the CPI in a 
timely manner. The data collected in this survey are necessary for the 
continuing construction of a current outlet universe from which 
locations are selected for the price collection needed for calculating 
the CPI. Furthermore, the TPOPS provides the weights used in selecting 
the items that are priced at these establishments. This sample design 
produces an overall CPI market basket that is more reflective of the 
prices faced and the establishments visited by urban consumers.
    For this clearance, the BLS and the Census Bureau have reduced the 
sample from 86 primary sampling units (PSUs) to 75. While the new 
sample continues to be introduced, there will be overlap of old and new 
samples in some areas in which the TPOPS data are collected. In 
addition, each new PSU will have an increased sample to be able to 
field a full outlet sample to collect prices for the CPI.

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,

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.
     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.
