This ICR seeks to extend PRA authority to conduct the American Time Use Survey (ATUS), the first Federally administered continuous national survey on time use in the U.S. The ATUS measures, for example, time spent with children, working, sleeping, or doing leisure activities. In the U.S., several existing Federal surveys collect income and wage data for individuals and families, and analysts often use such measures of material prosperity as proxies for quality of life. Time-use data substantially augment these quality-oflife measures. The data also can be used in conjunction with wage data to evaluate the contribution of non-market work to national economies.

While there are no proposed material changes to the ATUS, this ICR is considered to be a revision because of how an agency must account for burden changes under the PRA. Specifically, this ICR includes discretionary burden decreases to offset corresponding discretionary burden increases that will be reflected under other Control Numbers. More specifically, the DOL will now seek OMB approval to conduct 5-minute ATUS modules separately from the full ATUS ICR. This information collection is subject to the PRA. A Federal agency generally cannot conduct or sponsor a collection of information, and the public is generally not required to respond to an information collection, unless it is approved by the OMB under the PRA and displays a currently valid OMB Control Number. In addition, notwithstanding any other provisions of law, no person shall generally be subject to penalty for failing to comply with a collection of information that does not display a valid Control Number. See 5 CFR 1320.5(a) and 1320.6. The DOL obtains OMB approval for this information collection under Control Number 1220–0175. The current approval for this collection is scheduled to expire on December 31, 2013; however, it should be noted that existing information collection requirements submitted to the OMB receive a month-to-month extension while they undergo review. New requirements would only take effect upon OMB approval. For additional substantive information about this ICR, see the related notice published in the Federal Register on July 19, 2013 (78 FR 43227). Interested parties are encouraged to send comments to the OMB, Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs at the address shown in the ADDRESSES section within 30 days of publication of this notice in the Federal Register. In order to help ensure appropriate consideration, comments should mention OMB Control Number 1220– 0175. The OMB 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; E:\FR\FM\13NON1.SGM 13NON1 Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 219 / Wednesday, November 13, 2013 / Notices • Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and • 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 submission of responses.

administered continuous national survey on time use in the U.S. The 
ATUS measures, for example, time spent with children, working, 
sleeping, or doing leisure activities. In the U.S., several existing 
Federal surveys collect income and wage data for individuals and

as proxies for quality of life. Time-use data substantially augment 
these quality-of-life measures. The data also can be used in 
conjunction with wage data to evaluate the contribution of non-market 
work to national economies. This enables comparisons of production 
between nations that have different mixes of market and non-market 
activities. While there are no proposed material changes to the ATUS, 
this ICR is considered to be a revision because of how an agency must 
account for burden changes under the PRA. Specifically, this ICR 
includes discretionary burden decreases to offset corresponding 
discretionary burden increases that will be reflected under other
