Abstract The Census Bureau conducts the SIPP, which is a household-based survey designed as a continuous series of national panels. New panels are introduced every few years with each panel having durations of one to six years. Respondents are interviewed at 4month intervals or ‘‘waves’’ over the life of the panel. The survey is molded around a central ‘‘core’’ of labor force and income questions that remain fixed throughout the life of the panel. The core is supplemented with questions designed to address specific needs, such as obtaining information on household members’ participation in government programs as well as prior labor force patterns of household members. These supplemental questions are included with the core and are referred to as ‘‘topical modules.’’ The SIPP represents a source of information for a wide variety of topics and allows information for separate topics to be integrated to form a single, unified database so that the interaction between tax, transfer, and other government and private policies can be examined. Government domestic-policy formulators depend heavily upon the SIPP information concerning the distribution of income received directly as money or indirectly as in-kind benefits and the effect of tax and transfer programs on this distribution. They also need improved and expanded data on the income and general economic and financial situation of the U.S. population. The SIPP has provided these kinds of data on a continuing basis since 1983 permitting levels of economic well-being and changes in these levels to be measured over time. The 2008 panel is currently scheduled for approximately 6 years and will include 17 waves of interviewing beginning in September 2008. Approximately 65,300 households were selected for the 2008 panel, of which 42,032 households were interviewed. We estimate that each household contains 2.1 people, yielding 88,267 person-level interviews in Wave 1 and subsequent waves. Interviews take 30 minutes on average. Three waves will occur in the 2008 SIPP Panel during FY 2011. The total annual burden for 2008 Panel SIPP interviews would be 132,400 hours in FY 2011. The topical modules for the 2008 Panel Wave 10 collect information about: E:\FR\FM\23DEN1.SGM 23DEN1 Federal Register / Vol. 75, No. 246 / Thursday, December 23, 2010 / Notices • Assets and Liabilities. • Real Estate, Dependent Care, and Vehicles. • 6 Asset Sections (Interest Earning Accounts, Stocks and Mutual Funds, Mortgages, Value of Business, Rental Property, and Other Assets). • Medical Expenses and Utilization of Health Care (Adults and Children). • Work Related Expenses and Child Support Paid. • Child Well-Being. Wave 10 interviews will be conducted from September 1, 2011 through December 31, 2011. A 10-minute re-interview of 3,100 people is conducted at each wave to ensure the accuracy of responses. Reinterviews require an additional 1,553 burden hours in FY 2011. II. Method of Collection The SIPP is designed as a continuing series of national panels of interviewed households that are introduced every few years with each panel having durations of one to six years. All household members 15 years old or over are interviewed using regular proxyrespondent rules. During the 2008 panel, respondents are interviewed a total of 17 times (17 waves) at 4-month intervals making the SIPP a longitudinal survey. Sample people (all household members present at the time of the first interview) who move within the country and reasonably close to a SIPP primary sampling unit will be followed and interviewed at their new address. Individuals 15 years old or over who enter the household after Wave 1 will be interviewed; however, if these individuals move, they are not followed unless they happen to move along with a Wave 1 sample individual. mstockstill on DSKH9S0YB1PROD with NOTICES III.

On July 19, 2010, both Petitioner and TMI submitted rebuttal comments concerning valuation of factors of production. On July 14, 2010, the Department released additional data related to its reconsideration of its valuation of the labor wage rate in this review in light of a decision in Dorbest Ltd. v. United States, 604 F.3d 1363 (Fed. Cir. 2010), and afforded interested parties an opportunity to comment on the narrow issue of the new labor wage data.4 In addition, when it appeared that TMI did not understand that it had the opportunity to provide rebuttal information concerning the new wage data, the Department granted TMI another opportunity to comment and provide rebuttal factual comments.5 On 2 See Preliminary Results, at 75 FR at 34692. 3 Id. 4 See Memorandum to the File, ‘‘Wage Data,’’ dated of July 14, 2010. 5 See Memorandum to the File, ‘‘Treatment of Alleged New Information in U.S. Magnesium’s Case Brief,’’ dated of August 23, 2010.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

I. Abstract

    The Census Bureau conducts the SIPP, which is a household-based 
survey designed as a continuous series of national panels. New panels 
are introduced every few years with each panel having durations of one 
to six years. Respondents are interviewed at 4-month intervals or 
``waves'' over the life of the panel. The survey is molded around a 
central ``core'' of labor force and income questions that remain fixed 
throughout the life of the panel. The core is supplemented with 
questions designed to address specific needs, such as obtaining 
information on household members' participation in government programs 
as well as prior labor force patterns of household members. These 
supplemental questions are included with the core and are referred to 
as ``topical modules.''
    The SIPP represents a source of information for a wide variety of 
topics and allows information for separate topics to be integrated to 
form a single, unified database so that the interaction between tax, 
transfer, and other government and private policies can be examined. 
Government domestic-policy formulators depend heavily upon the SIPP 
information concerning the distribution of income received directly as 
money or indirectly as in-kind benefits and the effect of tax and 
transfer programs on this distribution. They also need improved and 
expanded data on the income and general economic and financial 
situation of the U.S. population. The SIPP has provided these kinds of 
data on a continuing basis since 1983 permitting levels of economic 
well-being and changes in these levels to be measured over time.
    The 2008 panel is currently scheduled for approximately 6 years and 
will include 17 waves of interviewing beginning in September 2008. 
Approximately 65,300 households were selected for the 2008 panel, of 
which 42,032 households were interviewed. We estimate that each 
household contains 2.1 people, yielding 88,267 person-level interviews 
in Wave 1 and subsequent waves. Interviews take 30 minutes on average. 
Three waves will occur in the 2008 SIPP Panel during FY 2011. The total 
annual burden for 2008 Panel SIPP interviews would be 132,400 hours in 
FY 2011.
    The topical modules for the 2008 Panel Wave 10 collect information 
about:

     Assets and Liabilities.
     Real Estate, Dependent Care, and Vehicles.
     6 Asset Sections (Interest Earning Accounts, Stocks and 
Mutual Funds, Mortgages, Value of Business, Rental Property, and Other 
Assets).
     Medical Expenses and Utilization of Health Care (Adults 
and Children).
     Work Related Expenses and Child Support Paid.
     Child Well-Being.

Wave 10 interviews will be conducted from September 1, 2011 through 
December 31, 2011.
    A 10-minute re-interview of 3,100 people is conducted at each wave 
to ensure the accuracy of responses. Reinterviews require an additional 
1,553 burden hours in FY 2011.

II. Method of Collection

    The SIPP is designed as a continuing series of national panels of 
interviewed households that are introduced every few years with each 
panel having durations of one to six years. All household members 15 
years old or over are interviewed using regular proxy-respondent rules. 
During the 2008 panel, respondents are interviewed a total of 17 times 
(17 waves) at 4-month intervals making the SIPP a longitudinal survey. 
Sample people (all household members present at the time of the first 
interview) who move within the country and reasonably close to a SIPP 
primary sampling unit will be followed and interviewed at their new 
address. Individuals 15 years old or over who enter the household after 
Wave 1 will be interviewed; however, if these individuals move, they 
are not followed unless they happen to move along with a Wave 1 sample 
individual.
