ACTION: Notice of determination. AGENCY: SUMMARY: The Bureau of the Census (Census Bureau) is conducting the Annual Retail Trade Survey (ARTS). The Census Bureau has determined a need to collect data covering annual sales, e-commerce sales, percent of ecommerce sales to customers located outside the United States, year-end inventories, total operating expenses, purchases, accounts receivables and, for PO 00000 Frm 00006 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 select industries, merchandise line sales and percent of sales by class of customer. The Census Bureau will furnish report forms to organizations included in the survey.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Mr. John Miller, Service Sector Statistics Division, at (301) 763–2747. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The ARTS is a continuation of similar retail trade surveys conducted each year since 1951 (except 1954). This survey provides, on a comparable classification basis, annual sales, e-commerce sales, purchases, and year-end inventories for 2006. These data are not publicly available from non-governmental or other governmental sources on a timely basis. The Census Bureau will require a selected sample of firms operating retail establishments in the United States (with sales size determining the probability of selection) to report in the 2006 ARTS. We will furnish report forms to the firms covered by this survey and will require their submissions within 30 days after receipt. The sample will provide, with measurable reliability, statistics on the subjects specified above. The Census Bureau is authorized to take surveys that are necessary to furnish current data on the subjects covered by the major censuses authorized by Title 13, United States Code (U.S.C.), Sections 182, 224, and 225. This survey will provide continuing and timely national statistical data on retail trade for the period between economic censuses. For 2006, the survey will, as it has in the past, operate as a separate sample of retail companies. The data collected in this survey will be similar to that collected in the past and within the general scope and nature of those inquiries covered in the economic census. These data will provide a sound statistical basis for the formation of policy by various government agencies. Notwithstanding any other provision of law, no person is required to respond to, nor shall a person be subject to a penalty for failure to comply with, a collection of information subject to the requirements of the Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA) unless that collection of information displays a current valid Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Control Number.

These data also apply to a variety of public and business needs. To obtain the desired data, the Census Bureau announces the administration of the 2006 Service Annual Survey (SAS). ADDRESSES: The Census Bureau will furnish report forms to respondents included in the survey, and additional copies are available upon written request to the Director, Census Bureau, Washington, DC 20233–0101.

The SAS provides continuing and timely national statistical data each year. Data collected in this survey are within the general scope, type, and character of those inquiries covered in the economic census. The Census Bureau needs reports only from a limited sample of service sector firms in the United States. The SAS now covers all or some of the following nine sectors: Transportation and Warehousing; Information; Finance, and Insurance; Real Estate and Rental and Leasing; Professional, Scientific, and VerDate Aug<31>2005 14:44 Nov 06, 2006 Jkt 211001 Technical Services; Administrative and Support and Waste Management and Remediation Services; Health Care and Social Assistance; Arts, Entertainment, and Recreation; and Other Services. The probability of a firm’s selection is based on its revenue size (estimated from payroll); that is, firms with a larger payroll will have a greater probability of being selected than those with smaller ones. We are mailing report forms to the firms covered by this survey and require their submission within 30 days after receipt. These data are not publicly available from non-government or other government sources. Based upon the foregoing, the Census Bureau is conducting the 2006 SAS for the purpose of collecting these data.
