SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Title: Equine Survey. OMB Number: 0535–0227. Expiration Date: 03/31/2014. Type of Request: To revise and extend a currently approved information collection for a period of three years. Abstract: To improve information regarding the equine industry, several State Departments of Agriculture are expected to contract the National Agricultural Statistics Service to conduct an Equine Survey in their State within the next 3 years. Equine activities offer unusually varied opportunities for rural development. In addition to providing the livelihood for breeders, trainers, veterinarians, and many others, the horse remains important to recreation. The number of operations, number of animals, and economic information will quantify the importance of the equine industry to State economies. Income data provides a view of the benefits that the industry provides to the State economy and a ranking of its relative importance within both the agricultural sector and the State’s total economic sector. The expenditure information provides data regarding the multiplier effect of money from the equine industry, effects of wage rates paid to both permanent and part-time employees, and secondary businesses supported by the industry. Authority: These data will be collected under authority of 7 U.S.C. 2204(a). Individually identifiable data collected under this authority are governed by Section 1770 of the Food Security Act of 1985 as amended, 7 U.S.C. 2276, which requires USDA to afford strict confidentiality to nonaggregated data provided by respondents. This Notice is submitted in accordance with the Paperwork VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:58 Oct 29, 2013 Jkt 232001 Reduction Act of 1995 (Pub. L. 104–13) and Office of Management and Budget regulations at 5 CFR part 1320 (60 FR 44978, August 29, 1995). NASS also complies with OMB Implementation Guidance, ‘‘Implementation Guidance for Title V of the E-Government Act, Confidential Information Protection and Statistical Efficiency Act of 2002 (CIPSEA),’’ Federal Register, Vol. 72, No. 115, June 15, 2007, p. 33376. Estimate of Burden: Public reporting burden for this collection of information is estimated to be between 20 and 25 minutes per response. Respondents: Horse owners, breeders, trainers, boarders. Estimated Number of Respondents: 40,000. Estimated Total Annual Burden on Respondents: 15,000 hours. Comments: Comments are invited on: (a) 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; (b) 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; (c) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (d) ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are to respond, through the use of appropriate automated, electronic, mechanical, technological or other forms of information technology collection methods. All responses to this notice will become a matter of public record and be summarized in the request for OMB approval. Signed at Washington, DC, September 27, 2013. Joseph T.

AGENCY: The United States Department of Commerce’s Bureau of the Census (Census Bureau) publishes this notice to announce that the Director of the Census Bureau has determined the need to conduct the 2013 Annual Retail Trade Survey (ARTS). ARTS covers employer firms with establishments located in the United States and classified in the Retail Trade and/or Accommodation and Food Services sectors as defined by the 2007 North American Industry Classification System (NAICS). Through this survey, the Census Bureau will collect data covering annual sales, annual ecommerce sales, year-end inventories held inside and outside the United States, total operating expenses, purchases, accounts receivables, and, for selected industries, merchandise line sales. These data are collected to provide a sound statistical basis for the formation of policy by various government agencies. Results will be available for use for a variety of public and business needs such as economic and market analysis, company performance, and forecasting future demand. The Census Bureau conducts the ARTS to provide continuing and timely national statistical data on retail trade, and accommodation and food services activity annually. emcdonald on DSK67QTVN1PROD with NOTICES SUMMARY: VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:58 Oct 29, 2013 Jkt 232001 The Census Bureau will provide report forms to businesses included in the survey.

As part of this authorization, the Census Bureau conducts the ARTS to provide continuing and timely national statistical data on retail trade, and accommodation and food services activity for the period between economic censuses. ARTS is a continuation of similar retail trade surveys conducted each year since 1951 (except 1954). ARTS covers employer firms with establishments located in the United States and classified in the Retail Trade and/or Accommodation and Food Services sectors as defined by the 2007 North American Industry Classification System (NAICS). ARTS provides, on a comparable classification basis, annual sales, annual e-commerce sales, yearend inventories held inside and outside the United States, total operating expenses, purchases, accounts receivables, and, for selected industries, merchandise line sales for 2013. The Census Bureau has determined that the conduct of this survey is necessary because these data are not available publicly on a timely basis from any other sources. Firms are selected for the ARTS survey using a stratified random sample based on industry groupings and annual sales size. We will provide report forms to the firms covered by this survey in February 2014, and will require their responses within 50 days after receipt. Firms’ responses to the ARTS survey are required by law (Title 13 U.S.C. Sections 182, 224, and 225). The sample of firms selected will provide, with measurable reliability, statistics on annual sales, annual e-commerce sales, year-end inventories held inside and outside the United States, total operating expenses, purchases, accounts receivables, and, for selected industries, merchandise line sales for 2013. The data collected in this survey will be similar to that collected in the past and within the general scope and nature of those inquiries covered in the economic census.

The survey, which has been conducted annually since 1974, is designed 
to collect information on the number of employees, payroll, geographic 
location, current operational status, and kind of business for each 
establishment of companies with more than one location. We have 
determined that annual data collected from this survey are needed to 
aid the efficient performance of essential governmental functions, and 
that these data have significant application to the needs of the public 
and industry. The data derived from this survey are not available from 
any other source.

ADDRESSES: The Census Bureau will furnish report forms to organizations 
included in the survey, and additional copies are available upon 
written request to the Director, U.S. Census Bureau, Washington, DC

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Sections 182, 224, and 225 of Title 13, 
United States Code (U.S.C.), authorize the Census Bureau to undertake 
surveys necessary to furnish current data on the subjects covered by 
the major censuses. Years that end in 2 and 7 are considered ``census 
years.'' In non-census years, companies report only on basic company 
affiliation and operations of establishments not within the scope of 
the economic censuses. In these non-census years, all multi-
establishment companies with 250 or more employees report survey 
information. Also, groups of smaller companies that are divided into 
panels may be selected to report information for one of the non-census 
years. Smaller companies may be selected if an organizational change 
within the company is indicated, or if they have been selected through 
the probability sampling procedure. The next economic census will be 
conducted for the year 2017. The data collected in the Company 
Organization Survey will be within the general scope, type, and 
character of those that are covered in the economic censuses. Forms NC-

location companies) will be used to collect the desired data.
    Notwithstanding any other provision of law, no person is required 
to respond to, nor shall a person be subject to a penalty for failure
