Third, we want to implement several iterative ACS Internet tests based on issues that arose from two ACS Internet tests conducted in 2011. Both of these tests studied the impact of different notifications of an Internet option in the survey invitations. Production ACS will begin collecting data using the Internet in January 2013. One problem detected in the 2011 tests was the impact to item nonresponse for questions in the later parts of the survey due to Internet breakoffs. The Internet tests in 2013–2015 will look at potential ways to restructure messaging and change the Internet design to help reduce break-offs and encourage response in a timely manner. Testing will also include a reexamination of the potential for using the Internet to collect data in Puerto Rico, since results from the 2011 test did not show any distinct advantage. Testing plans are largely undefined at this point, but we will submit more detailed information once plans are solidified. Other considerations for testing include a second Content Reinterview Survey to build upon the results from the first Content Reinterview Survey that is currently in the field due to the introduction of the web mode and content changes. We are also considering testing designed to improve data collection operations in Group Quarters, such as the introduction of a web option and developing a separate questionnaire for institutionalized populations. There are no specific test plans for these projects at this point. Other testing is being considered, but the specific details of these tests are not known at this time. However, these tests cover similar testing topics of content and methods to address emergent issues or needs. The tests may be conducted on both residential households or group quarters. The Census Bureau is still in the early stages for planning and implementing the proposed tests. Subsequently the materials to be used in the tests have not been developed. For changes to the tests described in this justification, the Census Bureau will submit a nonsubstantive change request documenting the change. The ACS must collect data on a continual basis and aggregate one, three, or five years worth of data to release data for all states, Congressional districts, counties, cities, and small towns down to the census tract and block group level. Essentially the ACS collects data every day of the year, either by mail, Internet (beginning in January 2013), telephone interviews or VerDate Mar<15>2010 15:22 Aug 30, 2012 Jkt 226001 personal-visit interviews. There are many federal programs that distribute funds based on population and income data from the Census Bureau, including data from the ACS. Federal agencies use ACS data to determine appropriate funding for state and local governments through block grants. State and local governments use ACS data for program planning, administration and evaluation. Thus, the reliability and the quality of the data must remain high in order for the users to rely on the data for funding decisions. So that the Census Bureau can provide critical information to governments and the private sector, the ACS collects comprehensive demographic, social, economic, and housing statistics covering every community in the nation. The ACS provides a continuous stream of updated information for states and local areas on an annual basis, and has revolutionized the ways the country uses data to understand communities and plan for the future. ACS Methods Panel testing, such as the Questionnaire Design Test, Internet Tests, and the 2015 Content Test, provide a mechanism to investigate ways to reduce or at least maintain data collection costs and improve the quality of the data.

Certain Lined Paper Products From India and the People's Republic 
of China: Continuation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Orders

AGENCY: Import Administration, International Trade Administration, 
Department of Commerce.

SUMMARY: As a result of the determinations by the Department of 
Commerce (the Department) that revocation of the antidumping duty (AD) 
orders on certain lined paper products (lined paper) from India and the 
People's Republic of China (PRC) would likely lead to continuation or 
recurrence of dumping, that revocation of the countervailing duty (CVD) 
order on lined paper from India would likely lead to continuation or 
recurrence of a countervailable subsidy, and the determinations by the 
International Trade Commission (the ITC) that revocation of these AD 
and CVD orders would likely lead to a continuation or recurrence of 
material injury to an industry in the United States, the Department is 
publishing this notice of the continuation of these AD orders and CVD 
order.

DATES: Effective Date: August 31, 2012.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On August 1, 2011, the Department initiated and the ITC instituted 
sunset reviews of the AD and CVD orders on lined paper from India, and 
the AD order on lined paper from the PRC pursuant to sections 751(c) 
and 752 of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act).\1\ As a result 
of its reviews, the Department found that revocation of the AD orders 
would likely lead to

continuation or recurrence of dumping and that revocation of the CVD 
order would likely lead to continuation or recurrence of a 
countervailable subsidy, and notified the ITC of the margins of dumping 
and the countervailable subsidy rates likely to prevail were the orders 
revoked.\2\

to section 751(c) of the Act, that revocation of the AD and CVD orders 
on lined paper from India and the PRC would be likely to lead to 
continuation or recurrence of material injury within a reasonably 
foreseeable time.\3\

(August 2012). With regard to the AD and CVD orders on lined paper 
from Indonesia, the ITC determined that the revocation of those 
orders would not be likely to lead to the continuation or recurrence 
of material injury to an industry in the United States.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Scope of the Orders

    The products covered by these AD and CVD orders include certain 
lined paper products, typically school supplies,\4\ composed of or 
including paper that incorporates straight horizontal and/or vertical 
lines on ten or more paper sheets,\5\ including but not limited to such 
products as single- and multi-subject notebooks, composition books, 
wireless notebooks, looseleaf or glued filler paper, graph paper, and 
laboratory notebooks, and with the smaller dimension of the paper

and folded pages in a notebook are measured by the size of the page as 
it appears in the notebook page, not the size of the unfolded paper). 
However, for measurement purposes, pages with tapered or rounded edges 
shall be measured at their longest and widest points. Subject lined 
paper products may be loose, packaged or bound using any binding method 
(other than case bound through the inclusion of binders board, a spine 
strip, and cover wrap). Subject merchandise may or may not contain any 
combination of a front cover, a rear cover, and/or backing of any

section 751(d)(2) of the Act, the Department hereby orders the 
continuation of the AD and CVD orders on lined paper from India and the 
AD order on lined paper from the PRC.

deposits at the rates in effect at the time of entry for all imports of 
subject merchandise. The effective date of the continuation of these 
orders is the date of publication in the Federal Register of this 
notice of continuation. Pursuant to section 751(c)(2) of the Act, the 
Department intends to initiate the next five-year review of these 
finding/orders not later than 30 days prior to the fifth anniversary of 
the effective date of the continuations.
