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, which the SIPP has provided on a continuing basis since 1983. The SIPP has measured levels of economic well-being and permitted 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. VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:48 Apr 29, 2011 Jkt 223001 Approximately 65,300 households were selected for the 2008 panel, of which 45,000 households were interviewed. We estimate that each household contains 2.1 people, age 15 years or older, yielding approximately 94,500 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 2012. The total annual burden for 2008 Panel SIPP interviews would be 141,750 hours in FY 2012. The topical module for the 2008 Panel Wave 11 collects information about Retirement and Pension Plan Coverage. Wave 11 interviews will be conducted from January 1, 2012 through April 30, 2012. 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 2012. 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 or 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.

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, which the SIPP has provided on a 
continuing basis since 1983. The SIPP has measured levels of economic 
well-being and permitted 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 45,000 households were interviewed. We estimate that each 
household contains 2.1 people, age 15 years or older, yielding 
approximately 94,500 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 2012. The total annual burden for 2008 
Panel SIPP interviews would be 141,750 hours in FY 2012.
    The topical module for the 2008 Panel Wave 11 collects information 
about Retirement and Pension Plan Coverage. Wave 11 interviews will be 
conducted from January 1, 2012 through April 30, 2012.
    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 2012.

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 
or 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.
