Background The Bureau of Labor Statistics’ Behavioral Science Research Laboratory (BSRL) conducts theoretical, applied, and evaluative research aimed at improving the quality of data collected and published by the Bureau. Since its creation in 1988, the BSRL has advanced the study of survey methods research, approaching issues of nonsampling error within a framework that draws heavily on the theories and methods of the cognitive, statistical, and social sciences. The BSRL research focuses primarily on the assessment of survey instrument design and survey administration, as well as on issues related to interviewer training, the interaction between interviewer and respondent in the interview process, and the usability of data-collection instruments by both interviewers and respondents. Improvements in these areas result in better accuracy and response rates of BLS surveys, frequently reduce costs in training and survey administration, and further ensure the effectiveness of the Bureau’s overall mission. II. Current Action Office of Management and Budget clearance is being sought for ‘‘Cognitive and Psychological Research.’’ The purpose of this request for clearance by the BSRL is to conduct cognitive and psychological research designed to enhance the quality of the Bureau’s data collection procedures and overall data management. The BLS is committed to producing the most accurate and complete data within the highest quality assurance guidelines. The BSRL was created to aid in this effort and over the past 20 years it has demonstrated the effectiveness and value of its approach. Over the next few years, demand for BSRL consultation is expected to remain high as approaches are explored and tested for dealing with increasing E:\FR\FM\12SEN1.SGM 12SEN1
