Overview of Information Collection Title of Information Collection: 2017 American Housing Survey. OMB Control Number: 2528–0017. Description of the need for the information and proposed use: The purpose of the American Housing Survey (AHS) is to supply the public with detailed and timely information about housing quality, housing costs, and neighborhood assets, in support of effective housing policy, programs, and markets. Title 12, United States Code, Sections 1701Z–1, 1701Z–2(g), and 1710Z–10a mandates the collection of this information. Like the previous surveys, the 2017 AHS will collect ‘‘core’’ data on subjects, such as the amount and types of changes in the housing inventory, the physical condition of the housing inventory, the characteristics of the occupants, housing costs for owners and renters, the persons eligible for and beneficiaries of assisted housing, remodeling and repair frequency, reasons for moving, the number and characteristics of vacancies, and characteristics of resident’s neighborhood. In addition to the ‘‘core’’ data, HUD plans to collect ‘‘topical’’ data on disaster and emergency preparedness, how people commute to work and commuting costs, the causes and effects of evictions, and recent delinquent payments and notices for mortgage, rent, or utility bills. The AHS national longitudinal sample consists of approximately 90,800 housing units, and includes oversample from the 15 largest metropolitan areas, approximately 5,200 HUD-assisted housing units, and approximately 6,000 ‘‘bridge sample’’ housing units. The bridge sample will allow for estimation of longitudinal changes between 2013, 2015, when the AHS introduced a new sample, and 2017. The bridge sample will also facilitate analyses of the impact of survey design changes on VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:46 Feb 27, 2017 Jkt 241001 2017 AHS estimates. In addition to the national longitudinal sample, HUD plans to conduct 10 metropolitan area samples, each with approximately 3,000 housing units (for a total of approximately 30,000 metropolitan area housing units). To help reduce respondent burden on households in the longitudinal sample, the 2017 AHS will make use of dependent interviewing techniques, which will decrease the number of questions asked. Policy analysts, program managers, budget analysts, and Congressional staff use AHS data to advise executive and legislative branches about housing conditions and the suitability of public policy initiatives. Academic researchers and private organizations also use AHS data in efforts of specific interest and concern to their respective communities. HUD needs the AHS data for two important uses. 1. With the data, policy analysts can monitor the interaction among housing needs, demand and supply, as well as changes in housing conditions and costs, to aid in the development of housing policies and the design of housing programs appropriate for different target groups, such as first-time home buyers and the elderly. 2. With the data, HUD can evaluate, monitor, and design HUD programs to improve efficiency and effectiveness. Members of affected public: Households. Estimated number of respondents: 129,297. Estimated time per response: 1.16. Frequency of response: One time every two years. Estimated total annual burden Hours: 62,524. Estimated total annual cost: The only cost to respondents is their time. The total estimated cost is $63,600,000. Respondent’s obligation: Voluntary. Legal Authority: Title 13 U.S.C.

Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. Chapter 35, as amended).

A. Overview of Information Collection

    Title of Information Collection: 2017 American Housing Survey.
    OMB Control Number: 2528-0017.
    Description of the need for the information and proposed use: The 
purpose of the American Housing Survey (AHS) is to supply the public 
with detailed and timely information about housing quality, housing 
costs, and neighborhood assets, in support of effective housing policy, 
programs, and markets. Title 12, United States Code, Sections 1701Z-1, 
1701Z-2(g), and 1710Z-10a mandates the collection of this information.
    Like the previous surveys, the 2017 AHS will collect ``core'' data 
on subjects, such as the amount and types of changes in the housing 
inventory, the physical condition of the housing inventory, the 
characteristics of the occupants, housing costs for owners and renters, 
the persons eligible for and beneficiaries of assisted housing, 
remodeling and repair frequency, reasons for moving, the number and 
characteristics of vacancies, and characteristics of resident's 
neighborhood.
    In addition to the ``core'' data, HUD plans to collect ``topical'' 
data on disaster and emergency preparedness, how people commute to work 
and commuting costs, the causes and effects of evictions, and recent 
delinquent payments and notices for mortgage, rent, or utility bills.
    The AHS national longitudinal sample consists of approximately 
90,800 housing units, and includes oversample from the 15 largest 
metropolitan areas, approximately 5,200 HUD-assisted housing units, and 
approximately 6,000 ``bridge sample'' housing units. The bridge sample 
will allow for estimation of longitudinal changes between 2013, 2015, 
when the AHS introduced a new sample, and 2017. The bridge sample will 
also facilitate analyses of the impact of survey design changes on 2017 
AHS estimates. In addition to the national longitudinal sample, HUD 
plans to conduct 10 metropolitan area samples, each with approximately 
3,000 housing units (for a total of approximately 30,000 metropolitan 
area housing units).
    To help reduce respondent burden on households in the longitudinal 
sample, the 2017 AHS will make use of dependent interviewing 
techniques, which will decrease the number of questions asked.
    Policy analysts, program managers, budget analysts, and 
Congressional staff use AHS data to advise executive and legislative 
branches about housing conditions and the suitability of public policy 
initiatives. Academic researchers and private organizations also use 
AHS data in efforts of specific interest and concern to their 
respective communities.
    HUD needs the AHS data for two important uses.
    1. With the data, policy analysts can monitor the interaction among 
housing needs, demand and supply, as well as changes in housing 
conditions and costs, to aid in the development of housing policies and 
the design of housing programs appropriate for different target groups, 
such as first-time home buyers and the elderly.
    2. With the data, HUD can evaluate, monitor, and design HUD 
programs to improve efficiency and effectiveness.
    Members of affected public: Households.
    Estimated number of respondents: 129,297.
    Estimated time per response: 1.16.
    Frequency of response: One time every two years.
    Estimated total annual burden Hours: 62,524.
    Estimated total annual cost: The only cost to respondents is their 
time. The total estimated cost is $63,600,000.
    Respondent's obligation: Voluntary.
    Legal Authority: Title 13 U.S.C. Section 9(a), and Title 12, 
U.S.C., Section 1701z-1 et seq.
