ADDRESSES: Direct all written comments to Jennifer Jessup, Departmental Paperwork Clearance Officer, Department of Commerce, Room 6616, 14th and Constitution Avenue NW., Washington, DC 20230 (or via the Internet at jjessup@doc.gov). FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Requests for additional information or copies of the information collection instrument(s) and instructions should be directed to Joy P. Pierson, Economic Planning and Coordination Division, U.S. Census Bureau, Room 8K319, Washington, DC 20233–6100 (or by email at Joy.P.Pierson@census.gov). SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Abstract The Census Bureau conducts the annual Company Organization Survey (COS) to update and maintain a central, multipurpose Business Register (BR) database. In particular, the COS supplies critical information on the composition, organizational structure, and operating characteristics of multilocation companies. The BR serves two fundamental purposes: PO 00000 Frm 00018 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 22097 —First and most important, it provides sampling populations and enumeration lists for the Census Bureau’s economic surveys and censuses, and it serves as an integral part of the statistical foundation underlying those programs. Essential for this purpose is the BR’s ability to identify all known United States business establishments and their parent companies. Further, the BR must accurately record basic business attributes needed to control sampling and enumeration. These attributes include industrial and geographic classifications, and name and address information. —Second, it provides establishment data that serve as the basis for the annual County Business Patterns (CBP) statistical series. The CBP publications present data on a number of establishments, first quarter payroll, annual payroll, and midMarch employment summarized by industry and employment size class for the United States, the District of Columbia, island areas, counties, and country-equivalents. No other annual or more frequent series of industry statistics provides comparable detail, particularly for small geographic areas. II. Method of Collection The 2014–2016 COS collection strategy will focus on launching electronic reporting as the primary collection option. As the Census Bureau moves to increase electronic response and process less paper, we plan to replace some form mailings with letters encouraging electronic response. The 2014–2016 COS will request companylevel information from a selection of multi-establishment enterprises, which comprise roughly 42,000 parent companies and more than 1.4 million establishments. Additionally, the panel will include approximately 5,000 large single-location companies that may have added locations during the year. Electronic reporting will be available to all 2014–2016 COS respondents. Companies will receive and return responses by secure Internet transmission. Companies that cannot use the Internet may request a CD–ROM containing their electronic data or may request a paper questionnaire. COS content is identical for all of the reporting modes. The instrument will include inquiries on ownership or control by domestic or foreign parent, ownership of foreign affiliates, and leased employment. Further, the instrument will list an inventory of establishments belonging to the company and its subsidiaries, and E:\FR\FM\21APN1.SGM 21APN1
