The ASM furnishes up-to-date estimates of employment and payrolls, hours and wages of production workers, value added by manufacture, cost of materials, value of shipments by class of product, inventories, cost of employer’s fringe benefits, operating expenses, and expenditures for new and used plant and equipment. The survey provides data for most of these items at the twothrough six-digit NAICS levels. We also provide geographic data by state at a more aggregated industry level. The survey also provides valuable information to private companies, research organizations, and trade associations. Industry makes extensive use of the annual figures on product class shipments at the U.S. level in its market analysis, product planning, and investment planning. State development/planning agencies rely on the survey as a major source of comprehensive economic data for policymaking, planning, and administration. The Ownership or Control forms (NC– 99530) will be used to update the Business Register, the basic input to the sampling frame for many of our current surveys. This enables us to update establishments in the Census Bureau’s Business Register that are incorrectly identified as being single-establishment firms. Affected Public: Business or other for profit. Frequency: Annually. Respondent’s Obligation: Mandatory. Legal Authority: Title 13, United States Code, sections 131, 182, 224, and 225.

Chapter 35). Agency: National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). Title: National Coral Reef Monitoring Program Survey. OMB Control Number: 0648–0646. Form Number(s): None. Type of Request: Regular (extension of a currently approved information collection). Number of Respondents: Average Hours per Response: 25 minutes. Burden Hours: 1,303. Needs and Uses: This request is for extension of a currently approved information collection. The purpose of this information collection is to obtain information from individuals in the seven United States (U.S.) jurisdictions containing coral reefs. Specifically, NOAA is seeking information on the knowledge, attitudes and reef use patterns, as well as information on knowledge and attitudes related to specific reef protection activities. In addition, this survey will provide for the ongoing collection of social and economic data related to the communities affected by coral reef conservation programs. The Coral Reef Conservation Program (CRCP), developed under the authority of the Coral Reef Conservation Act of 2000, is responsible for programs intended to enhance the conservation of coral reefs. We intend to use the information collected through this instrument for research purposes as well as measuring and improving the results of our reef protection programs. Because many of our efforts to protect reefs rely on education and changing attitudes toward reef protection, the information collected will allow CRCP staff to ensure programs are designed appropriately at the start, future program evaluation efforts are as successful as possible, and outreach efforts are targeting the intended recipients with useful information. Affected Public: Individuals or households. Frequency: Each jurisdiction every 3– 4 years. PO 00000 Frm 00006 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 13519 Respondent’s Obligation: Voluntary.
