SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00078 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 This ICR seeks approval under the PRA for revisions to the Current Population Survey: Basic Labor Force information collection. The labor force data collected in the Current Population Survey (CPS) help to determine the employment situation of specific population groups as well as general trends in employment and unemployment. The survey is the only source of monthly data on total employment and unemployment. The Employment Situation report contains data from this survey, and it is designated a Principle Federal Economic Indicator; moreover, the survey also yields data on the basic status and characteristics of persons not in the labor force. CPS data are used monthly, in conjunction with data from other sources, to analyze the extent to which, and with what success, the various components of the American population are participating in the economic life of the nation. This information collection has been classified as a revision, because of the addition of three new certification questions and deletion of three littleused educational attainment questions. The Acts establishing Bureau of the Census and the BLS authorize this information collection. See 13 U.S.C. 9 and 29 U.S.C. 1, 2. 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 1220–0100. The current approval is scheduled to expire on April 30, 2017; however, the DOL notes that existing information collection requirements submitted to the OMB receive a month-to-month extension while they undergo review.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This ICR seeks approval under the PRA for

information collection. The labor force data collected in the Current 
Population Survey (CPS) help to determine the employment situation of 
specific population groups as well as general trends in employment and

employment and unemployment. The Employment Situation report contains

are used monthly, in conjunction with data from other sources, to 
analyze the extent to which, and with what success, the various 
components of the American population are participating in the economic 
life of the nation. This information collection has been classified as 
a revision, because of the addition of three new certification

    This information collection is subject to the PRA. A Federal agency
