SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Background The ATUS is the Nation’s first federally administered, continuous survey on time use in the United States. It measures, for example, time spent with children, working, sleeping, or doing leisure activities. In the United States, several existing Federal surveys collect income and wage data for individuals and families, and analysts often use such measures of material prosperity as proxies for quality of life. Time-use data substantially augment these quality-of-life measures. The data also can be used in conjunction with wage data to evaluate the contribution of non-market work to national economies. This enables comparisons of production between nations that have different mixes of market and nonmarket activities. The ATUS develops nationally representative estimates of how people spend their time. Respondents also report who was with them during activities, where they were, how long each activity lasted, and if they were paid. All of this information has numerous practical applications for sociologists, economists, educators, government policymakers, businesspersons, health researchers, and others, answering questions such as: • Do the ways people use their time vary across demographic and labor force characteristics, such as age, sex, race, ethnicity, employment status, earnings, and education? • How much time do parents spend in the company of their children, either actively providing care or being with them while socializing, relaxing, or doing other things? How has this changed over time? • How are earnings related to leisure time—do those with higher earnings spend more or less time relaxing and socializing? • How much time do people spend working at their workplaces and in their homes? The ATUS data are collected on an ongoing basis nearly every day of the year, allowing analysts to identify changes in how people spend their time. II. Current Action Office of Management and Budget clearance is being sought for the American Time Use Survey. This survey collects information on how individuals in the United States use their time. Collection is done on a continuous basis with the sample drawn monthly. The survey sample is drawn from E:\FR\FM\29MYN1.SGM 29MYN1 24826 Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 103 / Wednesday, May 29, 2019 / Notices khammond on DSKBBV9HB2PROD with NOTICES households completing their 8th month of interviews for the Current Population Survey (CPS). Households are selected to ensure a nationally-representative demographic sample, and one individual from each household is selected to take part in one Computer Assisted Telephone Interview. Interviewers ask respondents to report all of their activities for one preassigned 24-hour day, the day prior to the interview. A short series of summary questions and CPS updates follows the core time diary collection. After each full year of collection, annual national estimates of time use for an average day, weekday, and weekend day are available. Because the ATUS sample is a subset of households completing interviews for the CPS, the same demographic information collected from that survey is available for ATUS respondents. Comparisons of activity patterns across characteristics such as sex, race, age, disability status, and education of the respondent, as well as the presence of children and the number of adults living in the respondent’s household, are possible.

Abstract: Sections 106 and 202 of the Federal Credit Union Act require federally insured credit unions to make financial reports to the NCUA. Section 741.6 prescribes the method in which federally insured credit unions must SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00085 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 submit this information to NCUA. NCUA Form 5300, Call Report, is used to file quarterly financial and statistical data and NCUA Form 4501A, Credit Union Profile, is used to obtain nonfinancial data relevant to regulation and supervision such as the names of senior management and volunteer officials, and are reported through NCUA’s online portal, Credit Unions Online. The financial and statistical information is essential to NCUA in carrying out its responsibility for supervising federal credit unions. The information also enables NCUA to monitor all federally insured credit unions with National Credit Union Share Insurance Fund (NCUSIF) insured share accounts. Affected Public: Private Sector: Notfor-profit institutions. Estimated Number of Respondents: 5,375. Estimated Number of Responses per Respondent: 4. Estimated Total Annual Responses: 21,500. Estimated Burden Hours per Response: 6. Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 129,000. Reason for Change: Form 4501A, NCUA Profile, is being revised to include two questions to evaluate industry-wide risk exposure related to single- and multi-employer defined benefit plans. This revision will not alter the estimated burden hours per response. The effort to provide a response is minimal and will not impact the total burden. The burden hours will reflect an adjustment to the number of respondents due to the decline in the number of federally insured credit unions. The number of federally insured credit unions completing the Call Report and Profile dropped from 5,530 to 5,375. The reduction of 3,720 burden hours reflects this adjustment.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

I. Background

    The ATUS is the Nation's first federally administered, continuous 
survey on time use in the United States. It measures, for example, time 
spent with children, working, sleeping, or doing leisure activities. In 
the United States, several existing Federal surveys collect income and 
wage data for individuals and families, and analysts often use such 
measures of material prosperity as proxies for quality of life. Time-
use data substantially augment these quality-of-life measures. The data 
also can be used in conjunction with wage data to evaluate the 
contribution of non-market work to national economies. This enables 
comparisons of production between nations that have different mixes of 
market and non-market activities.
    The ATUS develops nationally representative estimates of how people 
spend their time. Respondents also report who was with them during 
activities, where they were, how long each activity lasted, and if they 
were paid. All of this information has numerous practical applications 
for sociologists, economists, educators, government policymakers, 
businesspersons, health researchers, and others, answering questions 
such as:
     Do the ways people use their time vary across demographic 
and labor force characteristics, such as age, sex, race, ethnicity, 
employment status, earnings, and education?
     How much time do parents spend in the company of their 
children, either actively providing care or being with them while 
socializing, relaxing, or doing other things? How has this changed over 
time?
     How are earnings related to leisure time--do those with 
higher earnings spend more or less time relaxing and socializing?
     How much time do people spend working at their workplaces 
and in their homes?
    The ATUS data are collected on an ongoing basis nearly every day of 
the year, allowing analysts to identify changes in how people spend 
their time.

II. Current Action

    Office of Management and Budget clearance is being sought for the 
American Time Use Survey. This survey collects information on how 
individuals in the United States use their time. Collection is done on 
a continuous basis with the sample drawn monthly. The survey sample is 
drawn from

households completing their 8th month of interviews for the Current 
Population Survey (CPS). Households are selected to ensure a 
nationally-representative demographic sample, and one individual from 
each household is selected to take part in one Computer Assisted 
Telephone Interview. Interviewers ask respondents to report all of 
their activities for one pre-assigned 24-hour day, the day prior to the 
interview. A short series of summary questions and CPS updates follows 
the core time diary collection. After each full year of collection, 
annual national estimates of time use for an average day, weekday, and 
weekend day are available.
    Because the ATUS sample is a subset of households completing 
interviews for the CPS, the same demographic information collected from 
that survey is available for ATUS respondents. Comparisons of activity 
patterns across characteristics such as sex, race, age, disability 
status, and education of the respondent, as well as the presence of 
children and the number of adults living in the respondent's household, 
are possible.

III. Desired Focus of Comments

    The Bureau of Labor Statistics is particularly interested in 
comments that:
     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.
     Minimize the burden of the collection of information on 
those who are to respond, including through the use of appropriate 
automated, electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection 
techniques or other forms of information technology, e.g., permitting 
electronic submissions of responses.
