ADDRESSES: Send comments to Nora Kincaid, BLS Clearance Officer, Division of Management Systems, Bureau of Labor Statistics, Room 4080, SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00074 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 2 Massachusetts Avenue, NE., Washington, DC 20212.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Nora Kincaid, BLS Clearance Officer, telephone number 202–691–7628 (this is not a toll free number). (See ADDRESSES section). SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Background The purpose of this survey is to develop and maintain a timely list of retail, wholesale, and service establishments where urban consumers shop for specified items. This information is used as the sampling universe for selecting establishments at which prices of specific items are collected and monitored for use in calculating the Consumer Price Index (CPI). The survey has been ongoing since 1980 and also provides expenditure data that allows items that are priced in the CPI to be properly weighted. II. Current Action Office of Management and Budget clearance is being sought for the Telephone Point of Purchase Survey (TPOPS). Since 1997, the survey has been administered quarterly via a computerassisted-telephone-interview. This survey is flexible and creates the possibility of introducing new products into the CPI in a timely manner. The data collected in this survey are necessary for the continuing construction of a current outlet universe from which locations are selected for the price collection needed for calculating the CPI. Furthermore, the TPOPS provides the weights used in selecting the items that are priced at these establishments. This sample design produces an overall CPI market basket that is more reflective of the prices faced and the establishments visited by urban consumers. For this clearance, the BLS will be implementing a cell phone frame to address a coverage issue associated with landline RDD surveys. The goal of including a cell phone frame is to contact respondents who reside in households with no landline service, but with cellular phone service. The implementation process will begin with a pre-test beginning in the first quarter of 2011 to assess cell phone frame interviewing and to determine the correct amount of sample to pull for each primary sampling unit or geographic area in the CPI.
