The Consumer Price Index (CPI) is a measure of the average change over time in the prices paid by consumers for a market basket of consumer goods and services.

The CPI is then widely used as a measure of inflation, indicator of the effectiveness of government economic policy, deflator for other economic series, and as a means of adjusting dollar values. This information collection has been classified as a revision, because the BLS will introduce a new geographic area sample for the CPI in January 2018.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This ICR seeks approval under the PRA for 
revisions to the Consumer Price Index Commodities and Services Survey. 
The Consumer Price Index (CPI) is a measure of the average change over 
time in the prices paid by consumers for a market basket of consumer 
goods and services. Each month, BLS data collectors (economic 
assistants) visit or call thousands of retail stores, service 
establishments, rental units, and doctors' offices, all over the United 
States to obtain information on the prices of the thousands of items 
used to track and measure price changes in the CPI. The collection of 
price data from retail establishments is essential for the timely and 
accurate calculation of the commodities and services component of the 
CPI. The CPI is then widely used as a measure of inflation, indicator 
of the effectiveness of government economic policy, deflator for other 
economic series, and as a means of adjusting dollar values. This 
information collection has been classified as a revision, because the 
BLS will introduce a new geographic area sample for the CPI in January 
2018. The new sample consists of 75 urban areas, while the current 
sample consists of 87 urban areas. The BLS Authorizing Statute 
authorizes this information collection. See 29 U.S.C. 1, 2.
    This information collection is subject to the PRA. A Federal agency 
generally cannot conduct or sponsor a collection of information, and 
the public is generally not required to respond to an information 
collection, unless it is approved by the OMB under the PRA and displays 
a currently valid OMB Control Number. In addition, notwithstanding any 
other provisions of law, no person shall generally be subject to 
penalty for failing to comply with a collection of information that 
does not display a valid Control Number. See 5 CFR 1320.5(a) and 
1320.6. The DOL obtains OMB approval for this information collection 
under Control Number 1220-0039. The current approval is scheduled to 
expire on July 31, 2017; however, the DOL notes that existing 
information collection requirements submitted to the OMB receive a 
month-to-month extension while they undergo review. New requirements 
would only take effect upon OMB approval. For additional substantive 
information about this ICR, see the related notice published in the 
Federal Register on March 3, 2017 (82 FR 12471).
    Interested parties are encouraged to send comments to the OMB, 
Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs at the address shown in 
the ADDRESSES section within thirty (30) days of publication of this 
notice in the Federal Register. In order to help ensure appropriate 
consideration, comments should mention OMB Control Number 1220-0039. 
The OMB is particularly interested in comments that:
     Evaluate whether the proposed collection of information is 
necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, 
including whether the information will have practical utility;
     Evaluate the accuracy of the agency's estimate of the 
burden of the proposed collection of information, including the 
validity of the methodology and assumptions used;
     Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the 
information to be collected; and
     Minimize the burden of the collection of information on 
those who are to respond, including through the use of appropriate 
automated, electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection 
techniques or other forms of information technology, e.g., permitting 
electronic submission of responses.
