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.

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.

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 20233–0101.

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 noncensus 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–99001 (for multi-establishment companies) and NC–99007 (for single-location companies) will be used to collect the desired data.
