Download as PDF 58058 Federal Register / Vol. 85, No. 181 / Thursday, September 17, 2020 / Notices jbell on DSKJLSW7X2PROD with NOTICES Legal authorization and confidentiality: Section 2A of the Federal Reserve Act requires that the Board maintain long run growth of the monetary and credit aggregates commensurate with the economy’s long run potential to increase production, so as to promote effectively the goals of maximum employment, stable prices, and moderate long-term interest rates (12 U.S.C. 225a). The Board uses the information obtained from the FR 3077 to help fulfill these obligations. The FR 3077 is a voluntary information collection. Personally identifiable information collected on the SHED questionnaire, which would identify individual respondents, will be withheld under exemption 6 of the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA). Exemption 6 of the FOIA protects information from being disclosed that would result in an unwarranted invasion of personal privacy (5 U.S.C. 552(b)(6)). In the event cognitive interviews are conducted with select individuals to obtain qualitative feedback regarding an individual respondent’s thoughts or reflections on the questions posed in the SHED questionnaire, both the questions posed to the individual respondent and their responses would be protected by exemption 6 of the FOIA (5 U.S.C. 552(b)(6)). Current actions: On May 11, 2020, the Board published an initial notice in the Federal Register (85 FR 27742) requesting public comment for 60 days on the extension, with revision, of the FR 3077. The Board proposed to revise the SHED questionnaire by changing some of the core questionnaire questions to reduce the time respondents spend on specific questions by simplifying the language, as well as incorporating additional questions on emerging economic issues, and removing questions that do not require that new data be collected on an annual basis. The comment period for this notice expired on July 10, 2020. The Board received one comment. Detailed Discussion of Public Comments The one commenter expressed support for the data collection while urging the Board to include a general life satisfaction question in addition to financial satisfaction metrics. The Board agrees with the commenter’s suggestion that general life satisfaction questions are worthy of consideration for the survey; however, because space on the survey is limited and the survey primarily focuses on financial outcomes, the Board has opted not to incorporate the suggested question into VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:37 Sep 16, 2020 Jkt 250001 the proposed core question set. However, the survey instrument is structured to include additional topics beyond the core question set, which are included in the survey periodically. Recognizing the value of the commenter’s proposed question, the Board will include the suggested life satisfaction questions as potential adhoc questions to ask this year or in future years of the survey, pending space on the overall survey instrument. Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, September 14, 2020. Michele Taylor Fennell, Assistant Secretary of the Board.
