SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION I. Abstract The Census Bureau plans to conduct a Precanvass Operation in preparation for the 2012 Commodity Flow Survey to improve the efficiency and accuracy of the sample frame. The Commodity Flow Survey itself will be the subject of a later notice planned for publication in early 2011. The Commodity Flow Survey, a component of the Economic Census, is the only comprehensive source of multimodal, system-wide data on the volume and pattern of goods movement in the United States. The Commodity Flow Survey is conducted in partnership with the Bureau of Transportation Statistics, Research and Innovative Technology Administration, U.S. Department of Transportation. In conducting the Precanvass, the Census Bureau will mail a one-page questionnaire to manufacturing, mining, and wholesale establishments, enterprise support establishments, electronic shopping, mail-order houses, and publisher establishments, selected from its Business Register. The Precanvass will determine if these establishments are engaged in shipping activities, and if so obtain an estimate of the annual value of those shipments, along with updating address and contact information for the 2012 Commodity Flow Survey. Those establishments that do not engage in shipping activity will be eliminated from the sample frame. Identification and elimination of the non-shippers will significantly improve the efficiency of the sample for the 2012 Commodity Flow Survey. Also, those establishments excluded from the sample frame will be saved the added burden of receiving a 2012 Commodity Flow Survey. II. Method of Collection The Census Bureau will mail the Precanvass questionnaire to (a) enterprise support establishments in the Census Bureau’s Business Register, and (b) the largest establishments in the industries listed in Section I that are likely to be included in the 2012 Commodity Flow Survey. The estimated size of the Precanvass mailing is 100,000 establishments. The Census Bureau will use a mailout, mail-back or electronic reporting methodology, with telephone follow-up for selected nonresponse cases. General information on shipping activity and value of shipments will be PO 00000 Frm 00002 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 9990 collected via check box style questions. Contact information also will be collected and used to improve the mailing and follow-up activities for the 2012 Commodity Flow Survey. III. Data OMB Control Number: 0607–0932. Form Number: CFS–0001.
