Benton, Census Bureau, Room HQ–6H045, Washington, DC 20233–8400, (301) 763–4618. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION I. Abstract The U.S. Census Bureau requests authorization from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) to extend the expiration date for the 2004 Panel of the Survey of Income and Program Participation (SIPP) to February 28, 2008. This will provide the time necessary to conduct the Wave 10, 11, and 12 interviews for the 2004 Panel of the SIPP. The interviews will include the core SIPP, which has already been approved by OMB under Authorization No. 0607–0905. Due to budget constraints, there are no topical modules for the Wave 10, 11, and 12 interviews. The Census Bureau conducts the SIPP which is a household-based survey designed as a continuous series of national panels. New panels are introduced every few years with each panel usually having durations of one to five years. Respondents are interviewed at 4-month intervals or ‘‘waves’’ over the life of the panel. The survey is molded around a central ‘‘core’’ of labor force and income questions that remain fixed throughout the life of the panel. The SIPP represents a source of information for a wide variety of topics and allows information for separate topics to be integrated to form a single, unified database so that the interaction between tax, transfer, and other government and private policies can be examined. Government domestic-policy formulators depend heavily upon the SIPP information concerning the distribution of income received directly as money or indirectly as in-kind benefits and the effect of tax and transfer programs on this distribution. They also need improved and expanded data on the income and general economic and financial situation of the U.S. population. The SIPP has provided these kinds of data on a continuing basis since 1983 permitting levels of economic well-being and changes in these levels to be measured over time. The 2004 Panel is currently scheduled for 4 years and will include 12 waves of interviewing, which began in February 2004. Approximately 62,000 households were selected for the 2004 PO 00000 Frm 00002 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 67327 Panel, of which, 46,500 were interviewed, yielding approximately 97,650 interviews. Due to budget constraints we are limiting the sample for the 2004 Wave 10, 11, and 12 interviews to 21,292 households per wave. We estimate that each of these households will contain 2.1 people 15 years of age or older, yielding 44,713 interviews in each Wave. Interviews take 20 minutes on average. The total annual burden for 2004 Panel SIPP interviews will be 44,266 hours through January 2008. Wave 10, 11, and 12 interviews will be conducted from February 2007 through January 2008. A 10-minute reinterview of 1,064 people is scheduled to be conducted during Waves 10, 11, and 12 to ensure the accuracy of responses. Reinterviews will require an additional 533 burden hours through February 2008. II. Method of Collection The SIPP is designed as a continuing series of national panels of interviewed households that are introduced every few years with each panel having durations of 1 to 5 years. All household members 15 years old or over are interviewed using regular proxyrespondent rules. During the 2004 Panel, respondents are interviewed a total of 12 times (12 waves) at 4-month intervals making the SIPP a longitudinal survey. Sample people (all household members present at the time of the first interview) who move within the country and reasonably close to a SIPP primary sampling unit will be followed and interviewed at their new address. Individuals 15 years old or over who enter the household after Wave 1 will be interviewed; however, if these individuals move, they are not followed unless they happen to move along with a Wave 1 sample individual. III. Data OMB Number: 0607–0905. Form Number: SIPP/CAPI Automated Instrument. Type of Review: Regular. Affected Public: Individuals or Households. Estimated Number of Respondents: 134,139 people during Waves 10, 11, and 12. Estimated Time Per Response: 20 minutes per person on average. Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 44,799. Estimated Total Annual Cost: The only cost to respondents is their time. Respondent’s Obligation: Voluntary. Legal Authority: Title 13, United States Code, Section 182. E:\FR\FM\21NON1.SGM 21NON1
