Needs and Uses: The U.S. Census Bureau is requesting an extension of a currently approved collection for forms: C–700, for Private Construction Projects; C–700(R), for Multifamily Residential Projects; C–700(SL), for State and Local Governments Projects; and C–700(F), for Federal Government Projects. These forms are used to conduct the Construction Progress Reporting Surveys (CPRS) which collect information on the dollar value of construction put in place on nonresidential building projects under construction by private companies or individuals, private multifamily residential buildings, and building projects under construction by federal and state and local governments. The Census Bureau uses the information collected on these forms to publish estimates of the monthly dollar value of construction put in place.

The private sector uses the statistics for market analysis and other research. There are currently no planned content changes to the CPRS questionnaires. However, beginning with the September 2018 statistical period, we mailed redesigned forms, which were previously printed on a single legal page, and are now in booklet form. Additionally, the contact information is now requested on the front page of the booklet rather than on the back page, and the numbering scheme reflects this rearrangement of questions. Affected Public: Businesses; Not-forprofit institutions; State, local or Tribal governments; Federal Government. Frequency: Monthly. Respondent’s Obligation: Voluntary. Legal Authority: Title 13 U.S.C., Sections 131 and 182. This information collection request may be viewed at www.reginfo.gov.
