ACTION: Notice of determination. AGENCY: SUMMARY: The Bureau of the Census (Census Bureau) is conducting the 2007 Annual Surveys in the Manufacturing Area. The 2007 Annual Surveys consist of the Current Industrial Reports surveys and the Survey of Industrial Research and Development. We have determined that annual data collected from these surveys are needed to aid the efficient performance of essential governmental functions and have significant application to the needs of the public and industry. The data derived from these surveys, most of which have been conducted for many years, are not publicly available from non-governmental or other governmental sources. As in prior years, these surveys will operate as separate collections of national statistical data on manufacturing. Because 2007 is an economic census year, the 2007 Annual Survey of Manufactures is being conducted as part of the economic census and is not covered in this notice of determination. The following two annual surveys in the manufacturing area will not be conducted in 2007: Survey of Plant Capacity Utilization, and the Survey of Pollution Abatement Costs and Expenditures. ADDRESSES: The Census Bureau will furnish report forms to organizations included in each survey. Additional copies of the surveys are available upon written request to the Director, U.S. Census Bureau, Washington, DC 20233– 0101. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Thomas E. Zabelsky, Chief, Manufacturing and Construction Division, on (301) 763–4598. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Census Bureau is authorized to conduct mandatory surveys necessary to furnish current data on the subjects covered by the major censuses authorized by Title 13, United States Code, sections 61, 81, 131, 182, 193, 224, and 225. The data collected in the annual surveys in the manufacturing area will be similar to those collected in the past and within the general scope and nature of those inquiries covered in the economic census year; all the data collected in these surveys are mandatory under the PO 00000 Frm 00004 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 67699 authority of the sections of Title 13, U.S.C., mentioned above. In the interim years, most of these surveys are conducted under a mandatory basis as well. As in prior years, these surveys will operate as separate collections of national statistical data on manufacturing. Because 2007 is an economic census year, the 2007 Annual Survey of Manufactures is being conducted as part of the economic census and is not covered in this notice of determination. Two annual surveys in the manufacturing area will not be conducted in 2007. First, because the assessment of plant capacity utilization will be made on a quarterly basis for 2007, the Annual Survey of Plant Capacity Utilization will not be conducted this year. Second, the Annual Survey of Pollution Abatement Costs and Expenditures will not be conducted this year because the partnering agency for this survey has determined not to collect these data for 2007. Current Industrial Reports Most of the following commodity or product surveys provide data on shipments or production, stocks, unfilled orders, orders booked, consumption, and so forth. Reports will be required of all, or a sample of, establishments engaged in the production of the items covered by the following list of surveys: Survey Title MA311D Confectionery. MA314Q Carpets and Rugs. MA321T Lumber Production and Mill Stocks. MA325F Paint and Allied Products. MA325G Pharmaceutical Preparations, except Biologicals. MA327C Refractories. MA327E Consumer, Scientific, Technical, and Industrial Glassware. MA331B Steel Mill Products. MA332Q Antifriction Bearings. MA333A Farm Machinery and Lawn and Garden Equipment. MA333D Construction Machinery. MA333F Mining Machinery and Mineral Processing Equipment. MA333M Refrigeration, Airconditioning, and Warm Air Equipment.
