SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Title of Collection: Making Ends Meet Survey. OMB Control Number: 3170–0066. Type of Review: Request for approval of a generic information collection under an existing generic information collection plan. Affected Public: Individuals or households. Estimated Number of Respondents: 2,000. Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 1,600. Abstract: Under the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act Public Law 111–203, the Bureau is charged with researching, analyzing, and reporting on topics relating to the Bureau’s mission, including consumer behavior, consumer awareness, and developments in markets for consumer financial products and services. To improve its understanding of how consumers engage with financial markets, the Bureau has successfully used the Consumer Credit Panel (CCP), a proprietary sample dataset from one of the national credit reporting agencies, as a frame to survey people about their experiences in consumer credit markets. The Bureau seeks to obtain approval for a new survey named ‘‘Making Ends Meet’’ that will solicit information on the consumer’s experience related to household financial shocks and how households respond to those shocks, including the use of credit products that do and do not appear in the CCP. This project will support the Bureau’s ‘‘household balance sheets’’ research agenda, which seeks to monitor developments in consumers’ financial VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:21 Feb 01, 2019 Jkt 247001 situations, related changes in their use of financial products, and the effects that these decisions have on their balance sheets. All research under this collection will be related to the household balance sheet agenda, and, thus, will be for general, formative, and informational research on consumer financial markets and consumers’ use of financial products and will not directly provide the basis for specific policymaking at the Bureau. Request for Comments: The Bureau is publishing this notice and soliciting comments directed to the Office of management and Budget on: (a) Whether the collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the Bureau, including whether the information will have practical utility; (b) The accuracy of the Bureau’s estimate of the burden of the collection of information, including the validity of the methods and the assumptions used; (c) Ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (d) Ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on respondents, including through the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology. Comments submitted in response to this notice will be reviewed by OMB as part of its review of this request. All comments will become a matter of public record. Dated: January 29, 2019. Darrin A.
