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 
Questionnaire for Building Permit Official (SOC-QBPO). The Census 
Bureau uses the Computer-Assisted Personal Interviewing (CAPI) 
electronic questionnaire SOC-QBPO to collect information from state and 
local building permit officials on: (1) The types of permits they 
issue, (2) the length of time a permit is valid, (3) how they store 
permits, and (4) the geographic coverage of the permit system. We need 
this information to carry out the sampling for the Survey of Housing 
Starts, Sales, and Completions (OMB number 0607-0110), also known as 
Survey of Construction (SOC). The SOC provides widely used measures of 
construction activity, including the economic indicators Housing 
Starts, Housing Completions, and New Housing Sales.
    The current OMB clearance is scheduled to expire on May 31, 2017. 
We will continue to use the current CAPI questionnaire with minor 
revisions to question verbiage and questionnaire flow. The overall 
length of the interview will not change. The sample size will slightly 
change due to an increase in the number of local governments that issue 
building permits.

information on the operating procedures of a permit office using the 
SOC-QBPO. The field representative visits the permit office, conducts 
the interview, and completes this electronic form.
