Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 243 / Monday, December 19, 2016 / Notices SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: sradovich on DSK3GMQ082PROD with NOTICES I. Abstract The Census Bureau plans to request clearance for the collection of data concerning the Housing Vacancy Survey (HVS). The current clearance expires August 31, 2017. Collection of the HVS in conjunction with the Current Population Survey began in 1956, and serves a broad array of data users. We conduct the HVS interviews with landlords or other knowledgeable people concerning vacant housing units identified in the monthly CPS sample and meeting certain criteria. The HVS provides the only quarterly statistics on rental vacancy rates and homeownership rates for the United States, the four census regions, the 50 states and the District of Columbia, and the 75 largest metropolitan areas (MAs). Private and public sector organizations use these rates extensively to gauge and analyze the housing market with regard to supply, cost, and affordability at various points in time. In addition, the rental vacancy rate is a component of the index of leading economic indicators published by the Department of Commerce. Policy analysts, program managers, budget analysts, and congressional staff use these data to advise the executive and legislative branches of government with respect to the number and characteristics of units available for occupancy and the suitability of housing initiatives. Several other government agencies use these data on a continuing basis in calculating consumer expenditures for housing as a component of the gross national product; to project mortgage demands; and to measure the adequacy of the supply of rental and homeowner units. In addition, investment firms use the HVS data to analyze market trends and for economic forecasting. II. Method of Collection Field representatives collect this HVS information by personal-visit interviews in conjunction with the regular monthly CPS interviewing. We collect HVS data concerning units that are vacant and intended for year-round occupancy as determined during the CPS interview. Approximately 9,000 units in the CPS sample meet these criteria each month. All interviews are conducted using computer-assisted interviewing. III. Data OMB Control Number: 0607–0179. Form Number: HVS–600 (Fact Sheet for the Housing Vacancy Survey). Type of Review: Regular submission. VerDate Sep<11>2014 20:55 Dec 16, 2016 Jkt 241001 Affected Public: Individuals who have knowledge of the vacant sample unit (e.g., landlord, rental agents, neighbors). Estimated Number of Respondents: 9,000 per month. Estimated Time per Response: 3 minutes. Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 5400 hours. Estimated Total Annual Cost: There is no cost to the respondents other than their time. Respondents Obligation: Voluntary. Legal Authority: Title 13, U.S.C., Section 182 and Title 29, U.S.C., Sections 1–9. 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.

In addition, we adjusted Jindal’s reported U.S. prices to account for changes in its export subsidies in the final results of the companion countervailing duty administrative review.4 Additionally, for companies not selected for individual review, we have assigned a zero rate in the final results of this review, in accordance with section 735(c)(5) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act).

The Department intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after the date of publication of the final results of review. Because we have calculated zero margins in the final results of this review for both mandatory respondents during this POR, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212 we will instruct CBP to liquidate the appropriate entries without regard to antidumping duties.

Disclosure

    We intend to disclose the calculations performed to parties in this 
proceeding within five days after the public announcement of the final

Assessment Rates

    Pursuant to section 751(a)(2(C) of the Act and 19 CFR 
351.212(b)(1), the Department determined, and U.S. Customs and Border 
Protection (CBP) shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate 
entries of subject merchandise, in accordance with the final results of 
this review. The Department intends to issue assessment instructions to 
CBP 15 days after the date of publication of the final results of 
review. Because we have calculated zero margins in the final results of 
this review for both mandatory respondents during this POR, in 
accordance with 19 CFR 351.212 we will instruct CBP to liquidate the 
appropriate entries without regard to antidumping duties.
    Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.106(c)(2), we will instruct CBP to liquidate 
without regard to antidumping duties any entries produced and/or

the company-specific rate published in the completed segment for the 
most recent period for that company; (3) if the exporter is not a firm 
covered in this review, a prior review, or the less-than-fair-value 
investigation, but the manufacturer is, the cash deposit rate will be 
the rate established in the completed segment for the most recent 
period for the manufacturer of the merchandise; and (4) if neither the 
exporter nor the manufacturer is a firm covered in this or any other 
completed segment of this proceeding, then the cash deposit rate will 
be the all others rate for this proceeding, 5.71 percent. These deposit 
requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until further 
notice.

responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f)(2) to file a certificate 
regarding the reimbursement of antidumping duties prior to liquidation 
of the relevant entries during this review period. Failure to comply 
with this requirement could result in the Secretary's presumption that 
reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent 
assessment of doubled antidumping duties.

administrative protective order (APO) of their responsibility 
concerning the destruction of proprietary information disclosed under
