It also would permit BLS to target only the units meeting the specific set of characteristics desired allowing BLS to delve into specific areas of economic interest without burdening establishments which do not meet the specific targeted features. The QBS is designed to encourage a fast response and minimize respondent burden. In this manner, BLS can provide information that is needed quickly and is not collected elsewhere. Through the second operations test, the BLS will continue to evaluate the following goals: To develop and evaluate a QBS system, to understand the extent to which ARS respondents have access to different types of information in order to provide parameters for future QBS, and to estimate response rates. In addition, the second test will afford further analysis of more refined sampling methodology and efforts to improve response rates, and will allow the development of a detailed cost model for use in potential future production.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

I. Background

    Authorized insurance carriers are required to report the issuance

Compensation Act and its extensions, the Defense Base Act, Outer 
Continental Shelf Lands Act and Non-Appropriated Fund Instrumentalities

Harbor Workers' Compensation binds the carrier to full liability for 
the named employer's obligations under the Act or its extensions. 20 
CFR 703.118. This information collection is currently approved for use 
through May 31, 2019.

II. Review Focus

    The Department of Labor is particularly interested in comments 
which:
     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
