Needs and Uses: The U.S. Census Bureau requests authorization from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) to conduct a topical module during the Wave 11 interview for the 2008 Panel of the Survey of Income and Program Participation (SIPP). The core SIPP and reinterview instruments were cleared under Authorization No. 0607– 0944. 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 and 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 survey is molded around a central ‘‘core’’ of labor force and income questions that remain fixed throughout the life of a panel. The core is supplemented with questions designed to answer specific needs, such as estimating eligibility for government programs, examining pension and health care coverage, and analyzing individual net worth. These supplemental questions are included with the core and are referred to as ‘‘topical modules.’’ The topical module planned for the 2008 Panel Wave 11 is Retirement and Pension Plan Coverage. This topical module was previously conducted in the SIPP 2004 Panel Wave 7 and the SIPP 2008 Panel Wave 3 instruments. Wave 11 interviews will be conducted from January 1, 2012 through April 30, 2012. No topical modules are planned for Waves 12 through 17 of the 2008 Panel. We plan to continue fielding the core and reinterview instruments through E:\FR\FM\29JYN1.SGM 29JYN1
