SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Abstract The Census Bureau plans to conduct the 2017 New York City Housing and Vacancy Survey (NYCHVS) under contract for the City of New York. The primary purpose of the survey is to measure the rental vacancy rate, which is the primary factor in determining the continuation of rent control regulations. Other survey information is used by city and state agencies for planning purposes and by the private sector for business decisions. New York is required by city law to have such a survey conducted every three years. Information to be collected includes: age, gender, race, Hispanic origin, and relationship of all household members; employment status, education level, and income for persons aged 15 and above. Owner/renter status (tenure) is asked for all occupied units. Utility costs, monthly rent, availability of kitchen and bathroom facilities, maintenance deficiencies, neighborhood suitability, and other specific questions about each unit such as number of rooms and bedrooms are also asked. The survey also poses a number of questions relating to handicapped accessibility. For vacant units, a shorter series of similar questions is asked. Finally, all vacant units and approximately five percent of occupied units will be reinterviewed for quality assurance purposes. The Census Bureau compiles the data in tabular format based on specifications of the survey sponsor, as well as nonidentifiable microdata. Both types of data are also made available to the general public through the Census Internet site. Note, however, that the sponsor, like the general public, does not receive any information that PO 00000 Frm 00008 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 9990 68499 identifies any sample respondent or household. II. Method of Collection We will attempt to collect all information via a personal interview using a questionnaire that is available in English and Spanish. However, upon the respondent’s request, a telephone interview may be conducted. III. Data OMB Control Number: 0607–0757. Form Numbers: H–100, H–108. Type of Review: Regular submission. Affected Public: primarily households and some rental offices/realtors (for vacancies). Estimated Number of Respondents: 17,000 occupied units, 1,500 vacant units, 2,400 reinterviews. Estimated Time Per Response: 30 minutes—occupied, 10 minutes— vacant, 10 minutes—reinterview. Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 9,200. Estimated Total Annual Cost: $0. Respondent’s Obligation: Voluntary. Legal Authority: Title 13 U.S.C.— Section 8b and Local Emergency Housing Rent Control Act, Laws of New York (Chapters 8603 and 657). IV. Request for Comments Comments are invited on: (a) whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information shall have practical utility; (b) the accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden (including hours and cost) of the proposed collection of information; (c) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (d) ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on respondents, including through the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology. Comments submitted in response to this notice will be summarized and/or included in the request for OMB approval of this information collection; they also will become a matter of public record. Dated: October 30, 2015. Glenna Mickelson, Management Analyst, Office of the Chief Information Officer. [FR Doc. 2015–28150 Filed 11–4–15; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 3510–07–P E:\FR\FM\05NON1.SGM 05NON1
