SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Background

    An important aspect of the mission of the BLS is to disseminate to 
the public the maximum amount of information possible. Not all data are 
publicly available because of the importance of maintaining the 
confidentiality of BLS data. However, the BLS has opportunities 
available on a limited basis for eligible researchers to access 
confidential data for purposes of conducting valid statistical analyses 
that further the mission of the BLS as permitted in the Confidential 
Information Protection and Statistical Efficiency Act of 2002 (CIPSEA). 
The BLS makes confidential data available to eligible researchers 
through three major programs:
    1. The Census of Fatal Occupational Injuries (CFOI), as part of the 
BLS occupational safety and health statistics program, compiles a count 
of all fatal work injuries occurring in the U.S. in each calendar year. 
Multiple sources are used in order to provide as complete and accurate 
information concerning workplace fatalities as possible. A research 
file containing CFOI data is made available offsite to eligible 
researchers.
    2. The National Longitudinal Surveys of Youth (NLSY) is designed to 
document the transition from school to work and into adulthood. The 
NLSY collects extensive information about youths' labor market behavior 
and educational experiences over time. The NLSY includes three 
different cohorts: The National Longitudinal Survey of Youth 1979 
(NLSY79), the NLSY79

[[Page 29368]]

Young Adult Survey, and the National Longitudinal Survey of Youth 1997 
(NLSY97). NLSY data beyond the public use data are made available in 
greater detail through an offsite program to eligible researchers.
    3. Additionally, the BLS makes available data from several 
employment, compensation, prices, and working conditions surveys to 
eligible researchers for onsite use. Eligible researchers can access 
these data in researcher rooms at the BLS national office in 
Washington, DC

II. Current Action

    Office of Management and Budget clearance is being sought for the 
BLS Data Sharing Program. In order to provide access to confidential 
data, the BLS must determine that the researcher's project will be 
exclusively statistical in nature and that the researcher is eligible 
based on guidelines set out in CIPSEA, the Office of Management and 
Budget (OMB) implementation guidance on CIPSEA, and BLS policy. This 
information collection provides the vehicle through which the BLS will 
obtain the necessary details to ensure all researchers and projects 
comply with appropriate laws and policies.

III. Desired Focus of Comments

    The Bureau of Labor Statistics is particularly interested in 
comments that:
     Evaluate whether the proposed collection of information is 
necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, 
including whether the information will have practical utility.
     Evaluate the accuracy of the agency's estimate of the 
burden of the proposed collection of information, including the 
validity of the methodology and assumptions used.
     Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the 
information to be collected.
     Minimize the burden of the collection of information on 
those who are to respond, including through the use of appropriate 
automated, electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection 
techniques or other forms of information technology, e.g., permitting 
electronic submissions of responses.
