The data from this collection provides vital information for strategic planning efforts, decisions regarding allocation of resources, and revisions of land and resource management plans for national forests. It provides managers with reliable estimates of the number of recreational visitors to a national forest, activities of those visitors (including outdoor physical activities), customer satisfaction, and visitor values. The knowledge gained from this effort helps identify recreational markets as well as the economic contributions visitors’ spending has on economic areas around forest lands. For the Forest Service, the collection is designed for a five-year cycle of coverage across all national forests. Conducting the collection less frequently puts information updates out of cycle with forest planning and other data preparation and reporting activities. At recreation sites or access points, agency personnel or contractors will conduct onsite interviews of visitors as they complete their visit. Interviewers will ask about the purpose and length of the visit, the trip origin, activities, annual visitation rates, trip-related spending patterns, use of recreation facilities, satisfaction with agency services and facilities, and the composition of the visiting party. Primary analysis of the information for the Forest Service and partnering agencies will be performed by Forest Service staff in the Washington Office and by scientists in one or more of the agency’s research stations. Estimate of Annual Burden: 9 minutes (average). Type of Respondents: Visitors to lands and waters managed by the US Forest Service. Estimated Annual Number of Respondents: 45,000. Estimated Annual Number of Responses per Respondent: One. Estimated Total Annual Burden on Respondents: 6,400 hours. Comment is invited on: (1) Whether this collection of information is necessary for the stated purposes and the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information will have practical or scientific utility; (2) the accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden of the collection of information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; (3) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (4) ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:01 Aug 19, 2020 Jkt 250001 respondents, including the use of automated, electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or other forms of information technology.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Abstract The U.S. Census Bureau plans to request a revision of the current Office of Management and Budget (OMB) clearance of the Quarterly Services Survey (QSS). The QSS covers employer firms with establishments located in the United States and classified in select service industries as defined by the North American Industry Classification System (NAICS). The QSS coverage currently includes all or parts of the following NAICS sectors: Utilities (excluding government owned); transportation and warehousing (except rail transportation and postal); information; finance and insurance VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:01 Aug 19, 2020 Jkt 250001 (except funds, trusts, and other financial vehicles); real estate and rental and leasing; professional, scientific, and technical services (except offices of notaries); administrative and support and waste management and remediation services; educational services (except elementary and secondary schools, junior colleges, and colleges, universities, and professional schools); health care and social assistance; arts, entertainment, and recreation; accommodation; and other services (except public administration). The primary estimates produced from the QSS are quarterly estimates of total operating revenue and the percentage of revenue by source. The survey also produces estimates of total operating expenses from tax-exempt firms in industries that have a large not-for-profit component. For hospitals, the survey produces estimates of the number of inpatient days and discharges, and for select industries in the arts, entertainment, and recreation sector, the survey produces estimates of admissions revenue. Firms are selected for the QSS using a stratified design with strata defined by industry, tax status, and estimated size based on annual revenue. The sample consists of approximately 19,500 firms and is a subsample of firms from the larger Service Annual Survey (OMB# 0607–0422). Each quarter the QSS sample is updated to reflect the addition of new businesses and the removal of firms that have gone out-of-business. The Bureau of Economic Analysis uses the survey results as input to its quarterly Gross Domestic Product (GDP) and GDP by industry estimates. The estimates provide the Federal Reserve Board and Council of Economic advisors with timely information to assess current economic performance. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services use the QSS estimates to develop hospital-spending estimates for the National Accounts. Other government and private stakeholders also benefit from a better understanding of important cyclical components of the U.S. service economy. Starting in 2021, we may ask for additional data on the electronic instrument on a temporary basis to address a new module of business expectations. This request will not be added to the paper forms. Respondents will be asked for forecasts with two different time horizons—a single point estimate one quarter ahead and a one year ahead estimate with five points and corresponding probabilities. For the 2021 Quarter 1 reporting period, QSS respondents would see questions PO 00000 Frm 00005 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 51407 similar, but possibly not identical, to the following drafted questions: • What is the approximate expected dollar value of revenue you would anticipate for this firm during the quarter ending June 30, 2021? • Looking ahead to the quarter ending March 31, 2022, what is the approximate dollar value of revenue you would anticipate for this firm during that quarter and what likelihood do you assign to that value? Leading indicators and forwardlooking measures such as forecasts and projections are highly valued for their ability to help decision-makers, businesses, and individuals plan and adjust policies if necessary. Responses to these questions will provide a better understanding of business uncertainty and insight on future business activity. Initially, this pilot collection will request data for four consecutive quarters with the possibility of continuing collection for an additional four quarters. II. Method of Collection We will collect this information by internet, mail, and telephone follow-up. A significant number of QSS respondents receive an initial email with their username and authentication code for submission by internet. The remaining respondents are either mailed only their username and authentication code for submission by internet or mailed a full form. Respondents that report via the internet in any given quarter now have the option to choose how they want to receive forms in the future, i.e. email or mailed form. It should be noted that we phased out the use of facsimiles. III. Data OMB Control Number: 0607–0907.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Abstract

    The U.S. Census Bureau plans to request a revision of the current 
Office of Management and Budget (OMB) clearance of the Quarterly 
Services Survey (QSS). The QSS covers employer firms with 
establishments located in the United States and classified in select 
service industries as defined by the North American Industry 
Classification System (NAICS). The QSS coverage currently includes all 
or parts of the following NAICS sectors: Utilities (excluding 
government owned); transportation and warehousing (except rail 
transportation and postal); information; finance and insurance (except 
funds, trusts, and other financial vehicles); real estate and rental 
and leasing; professional, scientific, and technical services (except 
offices of notaries); administrative and support and waste management 
and remediation services; educational services (except elementary and 
secondary schools, junior colleges, and colleges, universities, and 
professional schools); health care and social assistance; arts, 
entertainment, and recreation; accommodation; and other services 
(except public administration). The primary estimates produced from the 
QSS are quarterly estimates of total operating revenue and the 
percentage of revenue by source. The survey also produces estimates of 
total operating expenses from tax-exempt firms in industries that have 
a large not-for-profit component. For hospitals, the survey produces 
estimates of the number of inpatient days and discharges, and for 
select industries in the arts, entertainment, and recreation sector, 
the survey produces estimates of admissions revenue.
    Firms are selected for the QSS using a stratified design with 
strata defined by industry, tax status, and estimated size based on 
annual revenue. The sample consists of approximately 19,500 firms and 
is a subsample of firms from the larger Service Annual Survey (OMB# 
0607-0422). Each quarter the QSS sample is updated to reflect the 
addition of new businesses and the removal of firms that have gone out-
of-business.
    The Bureau of Economic Analysis uses the survey results as input to 
its quarterly Gross Domestic Product (GDP) and GDP by industry 
estimates. The estimates provide the Federal Reserve Board and Council 
of Economic advisors with timely information to assess current economic 
performance. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services use the QSS 
estimates to develop hospital-spending estimates for the National 
Accounts. Other government and private stakeholders also benefit from a 
better understanding of important cyclical components of the U.S. 
service economy.
    Starting in 2021, we may ask for additional data on the electronic 
instrument on a temporary basis to address a new module of business 
expectations. This request will not be added to the paper forms. 
Respondents will be asked for forecasts with two different time 
horizons--a single point estimate one quarter ahead and a one year 
ahead estimate with five points and corresponding probabilities. For 
the 2021 Quarter 1 reporting period, QSS respondents would see 
questions similar, but possibly not identical, to the following drafted 
questions:
     What is the approximate expected dollar value of revenue 
you would anticipate for this firm during the quarter ending June 30, 
2021?
     Looking ahead to the quarter ending March 31, 2022, what 
is the approximate dollar value of revenue you would anticipate for 
this firm during that quarter and what likelihood do you assign to that 
value?
    Leading indicators and forward-looking measures such as forecasts 
and projections are highly valued for their ability to help decision-
makers, businesses, and individuals plan and adjust policies if 
necessary. Responses to these questions will provide a better 
understanding of business uncertainty and insight on future business 
activity. Initially, this pilot collection will request data for four 
consecutive quarters with the possibility of continuing collection for 
an additional four quarters.

II. Method of Collection

    We will collect this information by internet, mail, and telephone 
follow-up. A significant number of QSS respondents receive an initial 
email with their username and authentication code for submission by 
internet. The remaining respondents are either mailed only their 
username and authentication code for submission by internet or mailed a 
full form. Respondents that report via the internet in any given 
quarter now have the option to choose how they want to receive forms in 
the future, i.e. email or mailed form. It should be noted that we 
phased out the use of facsimiles.
