SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Abstract

    The Census Bureau is requesting an extension of the generic 
clearance to conduct customer satisfaction research which may be in the 
form of mailed or electronic questionnaires and/or focus groups, 
telephone interviews, or personal interviews.
    The Census Bureau has ranked a customer-focused environment as one 
of its most important strategic planning objectives. The Census Bureau 
routinely needs to collect and analyze customer feedback about its 
products and services to better align them to its customers' needs and 
preferences. Several programs, products, and distribution channels have 
been designed/redesigned based on feedback from its various customer 
satisfaction research efforts.
    Each research design is reviewed for content, utility, and user-
friendliness by a variety of appropriate staff (including research 
design and subject-matter specialists). The concept and design are 
tested by internal staff and a select sample of respondents to confirm 
its appropriateness, user-friendliness, and to estimate burden 
(including hours and cost) of the proposed collection of information. 
Collection techniques are discussed and included in the research 
concept design discussion to define the most time-, cost-efficient and 
accurate collection media.
    The clearance operates in the following manner: a block of hours is 
reserved at the beginning of each year, and the particular activities 
that will be conducted under the clearance are not specified in 
advance. The Census Bureau provides information to the Office of 
Management and Budget (OMB) about the specific activities on a flow 
basis throughout the year. OMB is notified of each activity in a letter 
that gives specific details about the activity, rather than by means of 
individual clearance packages. At the end of each year, a report is 
submitted to OMB that summarizes the number of hours used as well as 
the nature and results of the activities completed under the clearance.
    Some modifications of the clearance from previous years are 
planned. The number of burden hours will increase to 7,500 due to the 
anticipation of additional activities due to the 2010 Census.
