DATES: To ensure consideration, written comments must be submitted on or before July 22, 2014. 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 Erica Filipek, U.S. Census Bureau, MCD, CENHQ Room 7K057, 4600 Silver Hill Road, Washington, DC 20233, telephone (301)763–5161 (or via the Internet at Erica.Mary.Filipek@ census.gov). SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: SUMMARY: I. Abstract The U.S. Census Bureau plans to request a three-year extension of the current Office of Management and Budget (OMB) clearance of the Survey of Housing Starts, Sales and Completions, also known as the Survey PO 00000 Frm 00001 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 of Construction (SOC). The SOC collects monthly data on new residential construction from a sample of owners or builders. The Census Bureau uses the Computer-Assisted Personal Interviewing (CAPI) electronic questionnaires SOC–QI/SF.1 and SOC– QI/MF.1 to collect data on start and completion dates of construction, physical characteristics of the structure (floor area, number of bathrooms, type of heating system, etc), and if applicable, date of sale, sales price, and type of financing. The SOC provides widely used measures of construction activity, including the economic indicators Housing Starts and Housing Completions, which are from the New Residential Construction series, and New Residential Sales. The current clearance for this survey is scheduled to expire on October 31, 2014. No changes are planned to the questionnaire. We sample about 1,700 new buildings each month (20,400 per year). We inquire about the progress of each building multiple times until it is completed (and a sales contract is signed, if it is a single-family house that is built for sale). For single-family buildings, we conduct an average of 8.17 interviews and for multifamily buildings, we conduct an average of 7.0 interviews. The total number of interviews conducted each year for single-family buildings is about 107,844 and for multifamily buildings is about 50,400. Each interview takes 5 minutes on average. Therefore, the total annual burden is 13,187 hours. II. Method of Collection The Census Bureau uses its field representatives to collect the data. The field representatives conduct interviews to obtain data. III. Data OMB Control Number: 0607–0110. Form Number(s): SOC–QI/SF.1 and SOC–QI/MF.1. Type of Review: Regular submission. Affected Public: Individuals or households, business or other for-profit organizations. Estimated Number of Respondents: 20,400. Estimated Time per Response: 5 minutes. Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 13,187. E:\FR\FM\23MYN1.SGM 23MYN1
