SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Title: Importation of Ovine Meat From Uruguay. OMB Number: 0579–0372. Type of Request: Extension of approval of an information collection. Abstract: Under the Animal Health Protection Act (7 U.S.C. 8301 et seq.), the Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) of the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) is authorized, among other things, to prohibit or restrict the importation and interstate movement of animals and animal products to prevent the introduction into and dissemination within the United States of animal diseases and pests. The regulations for the importation of animals and animal products are contained in 9 CFR parts 92 through 98. The regulations in part 94 provide the requirements for the importation of specified animals and animal products to prevent the introduction into the United States of various animal wreier-aviles on DSK5TPTVN1PROD with NOTICES DATES: VerDate Mar<15>2010 14:45 Dec 16, 2013 Jkt 232001 diseases, including rinderpest and footand-mouth disease (FMD). The regulations in § 94.22 place certain restrictions on the importation of beef and ovine meat from Uruguay into the United States. These restrictions allow the importation of ovine meat from Uruguay under certain conditions to prevent the introduction of FMD. These conditions involve an information collection activity that requires APHIS to collect certification for each shipment from an authorized veterinary official of the Government of Uruguay that the conditions in § 94.22 have been met. We are asking the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) to approve our use of this information collection activity for an additional 3 years. The purpose of this notice is to solicit comments from the public (as well as affected agencies) concerning our information collection. These comments will help us: (1) Evaluate whether the collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the Agency, including whether the information will have practical utility; (2) Evaluate the accuracy of our estimate of the burden of the collection of information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; (3) Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (4) Minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are to respond, through use, as appropriate, of automated, electronic, mechanical, and other collection technologies; e.g., permitting electronic submission of responses. Estimate of burden: The public reporting burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 1.6 hours per response. Respondents: Federal animal health officials of the Government of Uruguay. Estimated annual number of respondents: 5. Estimated annual number of responses per respondent: 1. Estimated annual number of responses: 5. Estimated total annual burden on respondents: 8 hours. (Due to averaging, the total annual burden hours may not equal the product of the annual number of responses multiplied by the reporting burden per response.) All responses to this notice will be summarized and included in the request for OMB approval. All comments will also become a matter of public record.

Agency: U.S. Census Bureau. Title: Annual Social and Economic Supplement to the Current Population Survey. VerDate Mar<15>2010 14:45 Dec 16, 2013 Jkt 232001 OMB Control Number: 0607–0354. Form Number(s): CPS–580 (ASEC), CPS–580 (ASEC)SP, CPS–676, CPS– 676(SP). Type of Request: Revision of a currently approved collection. Burden Hours: 32,500. Number of Respondents: 78,000. Average Hours per Response: 25 minutes. Needs and Uses: The U.S. Census Bureau has conducted the Annual Social and Economic Supplement (ASEC) annually as part of the Current Population Survey (CPS) for over 60 years. The Census Bureau and the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) sponsor this supplement. The Census Bureau will conduct the ASEC in conjunction with the February, March, and April CPS. The ASEC data collection instrument has undergone substantive revisions from the previous collection in 2013. A summary of the revisions include: • Tailoring the order of income questions to match those sources most likely received given certain known characteristics of the household: (1) householder aged 62 and older; (2) lowincome households; and (3) a default for all other household types. • Use of a dual-pass approach through the income types first, identifying all sources of income received. Then proceed to ask amounts for those sources the respondent indicated receiving. • Use of income ranges as a follow-up for ‘‘don’t know’’ or ‘‘refused’’ income amount questions. • Change to the disability income questions to eliminate confusion between disability income from Social Security and Supplemental Security Income. • Collecting back-payments for disability benefits. • Use of a new strategy to collect property income by asking separately about income from retirement assets and other assets. • Collecting the value of assets that generate income if the respondent is unsure of the income generated. • Asking about withdrawals and distributions from retirement accounts. • Total revision to Health Insurance Coverage questions, asking about coverage at the present time and then coverage since January 1 of the previous year. The questions continue to concentrate on the major types of health coverage, which are employer-based, privately-purchased, or governmentsponsored. The revisions surround the method by which the questions are asked. Information on work experience, personal income, noncash benefits, PO 00000 Frm 00010 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 health insurance coverage, and migration is collected. The work experience items in the ASEC provide a unique measure of the dynamic nature of the labor force as viewed over a oneyear period. These items produce statistics that show movements in and out of the labor force by measuring the number of periods of unemployment experienced by people, the number of different employers worked for during the year, the principal reasons for unemployment, and part-/full-time attachment to the labor force. We can make indirect measurements of discouraged workers and others with a casual attachment to the labor market. The income data from the ASEC are used by social planners, economists, government officials, and market researchers to gauge the economic wellbeing of the country as a whole, and selected population groups of interest. Government planners and researchers use these data to monitor and evaluate the effectiveness of various assistance programs. Market researchers use these data to identify and isolate potential customers. Social planners use these data to forecast economic conditions and to identify special groups that seem to be especially sensitive to economic fluctuations. Economists use ASEC data to determine the effects of various economic forces, such as inflation, recession, recovery, and so on, and their differential effects on various population groups. A prime statistic of interest is the classification of people in poverty and how this measurement has changed over time for various groups. Researchers evaluate ASEC income data not only to determine poverty levels but also to determine whether government programs are reaching eligible households. The ASEC also contains questions related to: (1) medical expenditures; (2) presence and cost of a mortgage on property; (3) child support payments; and (4) amount of child care assistance received. These questions enable analysts and policymakers to obtain better estimates of family and household income, and more precisely gauge poverty status. Affected Public: Individuals or households. Frequency: Annually. Respondent’s Obligation: Voluntary. Legal Authority: Title 13, United States Code, Section 182, and Title 29, United States Code, Sections 1–9. OMB Desk Officer: Brian HarrisKojetin, (202) 395–7314. Copies of the above information collection proposal can be obtained by calling or writing Jennifer Jessup, E:\FR\FM\17DEN1.SGM 17DEN1
