Background The Quarterly Census of Employment and Wages (QCEW) program is a Federal/State cooperative effort which compiles monthly employment data, quarterly wages data, and business identification information from employers subject to State Unemployment Insurance (UI) laws. These data are collected from State Quarterly Contribution Reports (QCRs) submitted to State Workforce Agencies (SWAs). The States send micro-level employment and wages data, supplemented with the names, addresses, and business identification information of these employers, to the BLS. The State data are used to create the BLS sampling frame, known as the longitudinal QCEW data. To ensure the continued accuracy of these data, the information supplied by employers must be periodically verified and updated. For this purpose, the ARS is used in conjunction with the UI tax reporting system in each State. The information collected by the ARS is used to review the existing industry code assigned to each establishment as well as the physical location of the business establishment. As a result, changes in the industrial and geographical compositions of our economy are captured in a timely manner and reflected in the BLS statistical programs. The ARS also asks employers to identify new locations in the State. If these employers meet QCEW program reporting criteria, then a Multiple E:\FR\FM\21JYN1.SGM 21JYN1

policies, coordinate resources, and update service delivery models, to 
facilitate increased competitive integrated employment options for 
people with the most significant disabilities.
    The purpose of this information collection is to gauge, via a Web-
based survey, the effectiveness of ODEP's EFSLMP efforts to promote the 
implementation of EF policies and practices for persons with 
disabilities and to determine how well remote training and online
