Originating in the early 1900’s as ‘‘four-square education,’’ the 4–H’s (head-heart-hands-health) seek to promote positive youth development, facilitate learning and engage youth in the work of their community to enhance the quality of life. Need and Use of the Information: The annual 4–H Enrollment Report is the principal means by which the 4–H movement can keep track of its progress, as well as emerging needs, potential problems and opportunities. All of the information necessary to run the 4–H program is collected from individuals clubs, and other units. The information collected is used to report, as requested by the Congress or the Administration, on rural versus urban outreach, enrollment by race, youth participation in leadership, community service, etc. It is also used to determine market share or percentage of the youth of each state by age and place of residence who are enrolled in the 4–H youth development program.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: ADDRESSES: I. Background The Department of Commerce (Department) collects, compiles, analyzes, and disseminates a treasure trove of data, including data on the Nation’s economy, population, and environment. This data is fundamental to the Department’s mission and is used for the protection of life and property, for scientific purposes, and to enhance economic growth. However, the Department’s capacity to disseminate the increasing amount of data held and to disseminate it in formats most useful to its customers is significantly constrained. In order to realize the potential value of the data the Department collects, stores, and disseminates, the Department must minimize barriers to accessing and using the data. Consistent with privacy and security considerations, the Department is firmly committed to unleashing its untapped data resources in ways that best support downstream information access, processing, analysis, and dissemination. The Commerce Data Advisory Council (CDAC) provides advice and recommendations, to include process and infrastructure improvements, to the Secretary on ways to make Commerce data easier to find, access, use, combine and disseminate. The aim of this advice shall be to maximize the value of PO 00000 Frm 00003 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Commerce data to all users including governments, businesses, communities, academia, and individuals. The Secretary will draw CDAC membership from the data industry academia, non-profits and state and local governments with a focus on recognized expertise in collection, compilation, analysis, and dissemination. As privacy concerns span the entire data lifecycle, expertise in privacy protection also will be represented on the Council. The Secretary will select members that represent the entire spectrum of Commerce data including demographic, economic, scientific, environmental, patent, and geospatial data. The Secretary will select members from the information technology, business, nonprofit, and academic communities, and state and local governments. Collectively, their knowledge will include all types of data Commerce distributes and the full lifecycle of data collection, compilation, analysis, and dissemination. II. Description of Duties The Council shall advise the Secretary on ways to make Commerce data easier to find, access, use, combine, and disseminate. Such advice may include recommended process and infrastructure improvements. The aim of this advice shall be to maximize the value of Commerce data to governments, businesses, communities, and individuals. In carrying out its duties, the Council may consider the following: —Data management practices that make it easier to track and disseminate integrated, interoperable data for diverse users; —Best practices that can be deployed across Commerce to achieve common, open standards related to taxonomy, vocabulary, application programming interfaces (APIs), metadata, and other key data characteristics; —Policy issues that arise from expanding access to data, including issues related to privacy, confidentiality, latency, and consistency; E:\FR\FM\21DEN1.SGM 21DEN1
