This survey is flexible and creates the possibility of introducing new products into the CPI in a timely manner. The data collected in this survey are necessary for the continuing construction of a current outlet universe from which locations are selected for the price collection needed for calculating the CPI. Furthermore, the TPOPS provides the weights used in selecting the items that are priced at these establishments. This sample design produces an overall CPI market basket that is more reflective of the prices faced and the establishments visited by urban consumers. Pursuant to the terms of the previous ICR, a cell phone frame was tested in the third quarter of 2011 and deployed in the second quarter of 2012. The cell phone frame was added to address a coverage issue associated with landline RDD surveys. According to the National Health Interview Survey (NHIS), the percentage of households without landline service is increasing as cell phone use becomes more widespread. Including a cell phone frame allows the survey to reach households with no landline service, but with cellular phone service. III.

(See ADDRESSES section.) SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Background The CPS Displaced Worker, Job Tenure, and Occupational Mobility supplement is conducted biennially and was last collected in January 2012. This supplement will gather information on workers who have lost or left their jobs because their plant or company closed or moved, there was insufficient work for them to do, or their position or shift was abolished. Data will be collected on the extent to which displaced workers received advance notice of job cutbacks or the closing of their plant or business. For those workers who have been reemployed, the supplement will gather data on the types of jobs they found and will compare current earnings with those from the lost job. The incidence and nature of occupational changes in the preceding year will be queried. The survey also probes for the length of time workers (including those who have not been displaced) have been with their current employer. Additional data to be collected include information on the receipt of unemployment compensation, the loss of health insurance coverage, and the length of time spent without a job. Because this supplement is part of the CPS, the same detailed demographic information collected in the CPS will be available on respondents to the supplement. Comparisons will be possible across characteristics such as sex, race and ethnicity, age, and educational attainment of the respondent. The information collected by this survey will be used to determine the size and nature of the population affected by job displacements and the needs and scope of programs serving adult displaced workers. It also will be used to assess employment stability by determining the length of time workers have been with their current employer and estimating the incidence of occupational change over the course of a year.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

I. Background

    The CPS Displaced Worker, Job Tenure, and Occupational Mobility 
supplement is conducted biennially and was last collected in January 
2012.
    This supplement will gather information on workers who have lost or 
left their jobs because their plant or company closed or moved, there 
was insufficient work for them to do, or their position or shift was 
abolished. Data will be collected on the extent to which displaced 
workers received advance notice of job cutbacks or the closing of their 
plant or business. For those workers who have been reemployed, the 
supplement will gather data on the types of jobs they found and will 
compare current earnings with those from the lost job. The incidence 
and nature of occupational changes in the preceding year will be 
queried. The survey also probes for the length of time workers 
(including those who have not been displaced) have been with their 
current employer. Additional data to be collected include information 
on the receipt of unemployment compensation, the loss of health 
insurance coverage, and the length of time spent without a job.
    Because this supplement is part of the CPS, the same detailed 
demographic information collected in the CPS will be available on 
respondents to the supplement. Comparisons will be possible across 
characteristics such as sex, race and ethnicity, age, and educational 
attainment of the respondent.
    The information collected by this survey will be used to determine 
the size and nature of the population affected by job displacements and 
the needs and scope of programs serving adult displaced workers. It 
also will be used to assess employment stability by determining the 
length of time workers have been with their current employer and 
estimating the incidence of occupational change over the course of a 
year. Combining the questions on

displacement, job tenure, and occupational mobility will enable 
analysts to obtain a more complete picture of employment stability.

II. Current Action

    Office of Management and Budget clearance is being sought for the 
CPS Displaced Worker, Job Tenure, and Occupational Mobility Supplement 
to the CPS. A reinstatement, without change, of this previously

provide the Nation with timely information about displaced workers, job 
tenure, and occupational mobility.

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;
