A list of the issues which parties have raised, and to which we have responded in the Issues and Decision Memorandum, is attached to this notice as an Appendix. The Issues and Decision Memorandum is a public document and is on file electronically via Enforcement and Compliance’s Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Centralized Electronic Service System (‘‘ACCESS’’).11 ACCESS is available to registered users at http:// access.trade.gov and is available to all parties in the Central Records Unit, room 7046 of the main Department of Commerce building.

The signed and electronic version of the Issues and Decision Memorandum are identical in content. Final Results of Changed Circumstances Review For the Preliminary Results, the Department found that Kokuyo was the successor-in-interest to Riddhi based on evidence on the record. For these final results, the Department continues to find that the business transfer from Riddhi to Kokuyo resulted in no significant changes to management, production facilities, supplier relationships, and customers with respect to the production and sale of the subject merchandise. Thus, we determine that Kokuyo operates as essentially the same business entity as Riddhi with respect to the subject merchandise. Accordingly, the Department determines that Kokuyo is the successor-in-interest to Riddhi for the purpose of determining antidumping duty liability. tkelley on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Instructions to U.S. Customs and Border Protection As a result of this determination, we find that Kokuyo should receive the cash deposit rate previously assigned to Riddhi in the most recently completed review of the antidumping duty order on certain lined paper products from 11 On November 24, 2014, Enforcement and Compliance changed the name of Enforcement and Compliance’s AD and CVD Centralized Electronic Service System (‘‘IA ACCESS’’) to AD and CVD Centralized Electronic Service System (‘‘ACCESS’’).

Burden Hours: 16,000. Needs and Uses: The American Community Survey collects detailed socioeconomic data from about 3.5 million households in the United States and 36,000 in Puerto Rico each year. The ACS also collects detailed socioeconomic data from about 195,000 residents living in Group Quarter (GQ) facilities. An ongoing data collection effort with an annual sample of this magnitude requires that the ACS continue research, testing and evaluations aimed at improving data quality, achieving survey cost efficiencies, and improving ACS questionnaire content and related data collection materials. The ACS Methods Panel is a research program that is designed to address and respond to issues and survey needs. One of those issues relates to respondent concerns about the tone of the mandatory message on the ACS mail materials. The outside of the envelopes that contain the instructions to respond online and the paper ACS questionnaire display the bold message, ‘‘YOUR RESPONSE IS REQUIRED BY LAW.’’ The prominent references to the mandatory participation in the ACS are concerning to many respondents. The Census Bureau developed the current presentation of the mandatory nature of participation based on previous research that identified a significant positive impact of these messages in encouraging high self-response rates and reducing the need for follow-up by phone or personal visits by Census Bureau interviewers. In order to be responsive to respondent concern with the prominence of the mandatory message on the envelopes, we are conducting the Envelope Mandatory Messaging Test. This test will measure the impact of removing the phrase ‘‘YOUR RESPONSE IS REQUIRED BY LAW’’ from the envelopes (Attachment C) used to mail the initial package (second mailing) as well as the replacement package (fourth mailing).

We will continue to examine other possible revisions to the presentation of the mandatory nature of participation in the ACS, and will make future recommendations for additional testing. We have divided the monthly production sample of 295,000 addresses in 24 nationally representative groups of approximately 12,000 addresses each. For this test, planned for the May 2015 ACS panel, we will use two randomly assigned groups for the experimental treatment group. The total sample size for the experimental treatment group is approximately 24,000 addresses. The remaining cases in the May 2015 panel will comprise the control and receive all standard ACS mailings (envelopes with the mandatory language still included). As we are using production cases for the test, the test will run through the complete three-month data collection period. Our primary evaluation measure for this test is the self-response rate. Comparing the self-response rates between the two treatments allows us to detect at least a 1.0 percentage point difference with 80% power and a=0.1; this calculation assumes a 50% selfresponse rate. Additional metrics of interest include total response rate, cost analysis and the impact on ACS estimates.

Submission for OMB Review; Comment Request

    The Department of Commerce will submit to the Office of Management 
and Budget (OMB) for clearance the following proposal for collection of 
information under the provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act (44 
U.S.C. chapter 35).
    Agency: U.S. Census Bureau.
    Title: American Community Survey (ACS) Methods Panel Envelope 
Mandatory Messaging Test.
    OMB Control Number: 0607-0936.
    Form Number(s): ACS-1, ACS-1 (Spanish), ACS CATI, ACS CAPI, ACS 
Internet.
    Type of Request: Emergency review.
    Number of Respondents: 24,000.
    Average Hours Per Response: 40 minutes.
    Burden Hours: 16,000.
    Needs and Uses:
    The American Community Survey collects detailed socioeconomic data 
from about 3.5 million households in the United States and 36,000 in 
Puerto Rico each year. The ACS also collects detailed socioeconomic 
data from about 195,000 residents living in Group Quarter (GQ) 
facilities. An ongoing data collection effort with an annual sample of 
this magnitude requires that the ACS continue research, testing and 
evaluations aimed at improving data quality, achieving survey cost 
efficiencies, and improving ACS questionnaire content and related data 
collection materials. The ACS Methods Panel is a research program that 
is designed to address and respond to issues and survey needs. One of 
those issues relates to respondent concerns about the tone of the 
mandatory message on the ACS mail materials.
    The outside of the envelopes that contain the instructions to 
respond online and the paper ACS questionnaire display the bold 
message, ``YOUR RESPONSE IS REQUIRED BY LAW.'' The prominent references 
to the mandatory participation in the ACS are concerning to many 
respondents. The Census Bureau developed the current presentation of 
the mandatory nature of participation based on previous research that 
identified a significant positive impact of these messages in 
encouraging high self-response rates and reducing the need for follow-
up by phone or personal visits by Census Bureau interviewers. In order 
to be responsive to respondent concern with the prominence of the 
mandatory message on the envelopes, we are conducting the Envelope 
Mandatory Messaging Test.
    This test will measure the impact of removing the phrase ``YOUR 
RESPONSE IS REQUIRED BY LAW'' from the envelopes (Attachment C) used to 
mail the initial package (second mailing) as well as the replacement 
package (fourth mailing). This phrase

does not appear on other envelopes. We will continue to examine other 
possible revisions to the presentation of the mandatory nature of 
participation in the ACS, and will make future recommendations for 
additional testing.
    We have divided the monthly production sample of 295,000 addresses 
in 24 nationally representative groups of approximately 12,000 
addresses each. For this test, planned for the May 2015 ACS panel, we 
will use two randomly assigned groups for the experimental treatment 
group. The total sample size for the experimental treatment group is

panel will comprise the control and receive all standard ACS mailings 
(envelopes with the mandatory language still included). As we are using 
production cases for the test, the test will run through the complete 
three-month data collection period.
    Our primary evaluation measure for this test is the self-response 
rate. Comparing the self-response rates between the two treatments 
allows us to detect at least a 1.0 percentage point difference with 80% 
power and [alpha]=0.1; this calculation assumes a 50% self-response 
rate. Additional metrics of interest include total response rate, cost 
analysis and the impact on ACS estimates.
    Affected Public: Individuals or households,
    Frequency: One-time test as part of the monthly American Community 
Survey,
    Respondent's Obligation: Mandatory.

collection should be sent within 16 days of publication of this notice
