SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Abstract The Census Bureau plans to request a three-year extension of a currently approved collection of the Form C–411. The Census Bureau produces statistics used to monitor activity in the large and dynamic construction industry. These statistics help state and local governments and the Federal government, as well as private industry, to analyze this important sector of the economy. The Census Bureau uses the Form C– 411 or questions from the form to obtain information needed to update the universe of permit-issuing places from state and local building permit and zoning officials. Questions on the form pertain to the legal requirements for issuing building or zoning permits in E:\FR\FM\09NON1.SGM 09NON1 71306 Federal Register / Vol. 85, No. 217 / Monday, November 9, 2020 / Notices the local jurisdictions. Information is obtained on such items as geographic coverage and types of construction for which permits are issued. The universe of permit-issuing places is the sampling frame for the Building Permits Survey (BPS) and the Survey of Construction (SOC). These two sample surveys provide widely used measures of construction activity, including the monthly Principal Federal Economic Indicators Housing Units Authorized by Building Permits and Housing Starts. II. Method of Collection One of three variants of the Form C– 411 is sent to a jurisdiction when the Census Bureau has reason to believe that a new permit system has been established or an existing one has changed. This is based on information the Census Bureau obtains from a variety of sources including survey respondents, regional planning councils, and data from the Census Bureau’s Geography Division on newly incorporated jurisdictions. While the C– 411 is currently a mailed paper form, the Census Bureau is considering adding this collection to the standard online collection instrument (Centurion) in the future. There are three versions of the form: • C–411(V) for verification of coverage for jurisdictions with existing permit systems • C–411(M) for municipalities where a new permit system may have been established • C–411(C) for counties where new permit systems may have been established. Forms are mailed every five years to approximately 3,500 jurisdictions that the Census Bureau has reason to believe have new or changed permit-issuing places. The Census Bureau may follow up with individual jurisdictions between mailings via email or phone as necessary to maintain the permit issuing universe.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Abstract

    The Census Bureau plans to request a three-year extension of a 
currently approved collection of the Form C-411. The Census Bureau 
produces statistics used to monitor activity in the large and dynamic 
construction industry. These statistics help state and local 
governments and the Federal government, as well as private industry, to 
analyze this important sector of the economy.
    The Census Bureau uses the Form C-411 or questions from the form to 
obtain information needed to update the universe of permit-issuing 
places from state and local building permit and zoning officials. 
Questions on the form pertain to the legal requirements for issuing 
building or zoning permits in

the local jurisdictions. Information is obtained on such items as 
geographic coverage and types of construction for which permits are 
issued.
    The universe of permit-issuing places is the sampling frame for the 
Building Permits Survey (BPS) and the Survey of Construction (SOC). 
These two sample surveys provide widely used measures of construction 
activity, including the monthly Principal Federal Economic Indicators 
Housing Units Authorized by Building Permits and Housing Starts.

II. Method of Collection

    One of three variants of the Form C-411 is sent to a jurisdiction 
when the Census Bureau has reason to believe that a new permit system 
has been established or an existing one has changed. This is based on 
information the Census Bureau obtains from a variety of sources 
including survey respondents, regional planning councils, and data from 
the Census Bureau's Geography Division on newly incorporated 
jurisdictions. While the C-411 is currently a mailed paper form, the 
Census Bureau is considering adding this collection to the standard 
online collection instrument (Centurion) in the future.
    There are three versions of the form:

 C-411(V) for verification of coverage for jurisdictions with 
existing permit systems
 C-411(M) for municipalities where a new permit system may have 
been established
 C-411(C) for counties where new permit systems may have been 
established.

    Forms are mailed every five years to approximately 3,500 
jurisdictions that the Census Bureau has reason to believe have new or 
changed permit-issuing places. The Census Bureau may follow up with 
individual jurisdictions between mailings via email or phone as 
necessary to maintain the permit issuing universe. The Census Bureau 
follows up with approximately 150 jurisdictions annually between 
mailouts. The next 5-year mailout is scheduled for 2022.
