SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Abstract

    The Census Bureau plans to request clearance for the form necessary 
to conduct the Quarterly Survey of Public Pensions. The quarterly 
survey was initiated by the Census Bureau in 1968 at the request of 
both the Council of Economic Advisers and the Federal Reserve Board.
    The Quarterly Survey of Public Pensions currently provides national 
summary data on the revenues, expenditures, and composition of assets 
of the largest pension systems of state and local governments. The 
Census Bureau plans to cease collection of revenue and expenditure data 
on a quarterly basis and focus the collection on asset holdings of the 
largest pension systems. Revenue and Expenditure data will continue to 
be provided on an annual basis through the related Annual Survey of 
Public Pensions.
    These data are used by the Federal Reserve Board to track the 
public sector portion of the Flow of Funds Accounts. Economists and 
public policy analysts use these data to assess general economic 
conditions and state and local government financial activities.
    Data are collected from a panel of defined benefit plans of the 100 
largest state and local government pension systems as determined by 
their total cash and security holdings reported in the 2012 Census of 
Governments. The defined benefit plans of these 100 largest pension 
systems comprise 87.2 percent of financial activity among such 
entities, based on the 2012 Census of Governments.

II. Method of Collection

    Survey data are collected through the Census Bureau's web 
collection system that enables public entities to respond to the 
questionnaire via the internet. The questionnaire is available online 
for respondents to print when they choose to mail or fax. Most 
respondents choose to report their data online. In addition to 
reporting current quarter data, respondents may provide initial data 
for the previous seven quarters or submit revisions to their data 
submitted in the previous seven quarters.
