DATES: SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Abstract The Economic Census General Classification Report (NC–99023) collects information on new businesses for the purpose of assigning a proper North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) code. New businesses are assigned NAICS codes by the Social Security Administration (SSA); however, many of these businesses cannot be assigned detailed NAICS codes, because insufficient data are provided by respondents on the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) Form SS–4. This report, conducted separately in fiscal years 2012 and 2013, will mail approximately 100,000 businesses per year that are unclassified or have been partially classified. The NC–99023 form collects information on primary business activity in order to determine a complete and reliable NAICS code. Proper industry classification ensures PO 00000 Frm 00002 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 that establishments will be tabulated in the correct detailed industry for the 2012 Economic Census and other survey programs, ensuring high quality economic estimates. Failure to collect these data will have an adverse effect on the quality and usefulness of economic statistics provided by the Census Bureau. Additionally, by ensuring proper industry classification, this survey reduces processing costs and reporting burden for the 2012 Economic Census data collection. There are few changes since the last request was submitted for an OMB clearance request in 2007. Changes will be made to the wording and organization of existing economic activity descriptions. Additionally, respondents will have the option to respond electronically via the Internet. II. Method of Collection Information is collected by Internet, mail, and fax. III.
