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.

ACTION: Notice of Determination. AGENCY: SUMMARY: In accordance with Title 13, United States Code (U.S.C.), sections 182, 224, and 225, the Bureau of the Census (Census Bureau) has determined that limited financial data (revenue, expenses, and the like) for selected service industries are needed to provide a sound statistical basis for the formation of policy by various governmental agencies. 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 2007 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.

PO 00000 Frm 00005 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 The Census Bureau conducts surveys necessary to furnish current data on subjects covered by the major censuses authorized by Title 13, U.S.C. 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. For 2007, the economic census year, the SAS will, as it has in the past, operate as a separate sample of selected service industries. 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 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 2007 SAS for the purpose of collecting these data. 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. In accordance with the PRA, Title 44 U.S.C., Chapter 35, the OMB approved the SAS under OMB Control Number 0607–0422. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Dated: November 26, 2007.

and the Census Bureau. The NSF publishes the results in its publication 
series. All data items are collected on a mandatory basis under the
