SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On June 15, 1984, OMB delegated to the Board authority under the PRA to approve and assign OMB control numbers to collections of information conducted or sponsored by the Board. In exercising this delegated authority, the Board is directed to take every reasonable step to solicit comment. In determining whether to approve a collection of information, the Board will consider all comments received from the public and other agencies. A copy of the Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA) OMB submission, including the reporting form and instructions, supporting statement, and other documentation will be available at https://www.reginfo.gov/public/do/ PRAMain, if approved. These documents will also be made available on the Board’s public website at https:// www.federalreserve.gov/apps/ reportforms/review.aspx or may be requested from the agency clearance officer, whose name appears above. Request for Comment on Information Collection Proposal The Board invites public comment on the following information collection, which is being reviewed under authority delegated by the OMB under the PRA. Comments are invited on the following: a. Whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the Board’s functions, including whether the information has practical utility; b. The accuracy of the Board’s estimate of the burden of the proposed information collection, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; c. Ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; d. Ways to minimize the burden of information collection on respondents, including through the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology; and e. Estimates of capital or startup costs and costs of operation, maintenance, and purchase of services to provide information. At the end of the comment period, the comments and recommendations received will be analyzed to determine the extent to which the Board should modify the proposal. VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:21 Feb 02, 2021 Jkt 253001 Proposal Under OMB Delegated Authority To Extend for Three Years, Without Revision, the Following Information Collection Report title: Survey of Consumer Finances. Agency form number: FR 3059. OMB control number: 7100–0287. Frequency: Triennial. Respondents: U.S. families. Estimated number of respondents: Pretest, 150; Main survey, 7,000. Estimated average hours per response: Pretest, 100 minutes; Main survey, 100 minutes. Estimated annual burden hours: Pretest, 250 hours; Main survey, 11,667 hours. General description of report: This triennial survey is the only source of representative information on the structure of U.S. families’ finances. The survey would collect data on the assets, debts, income, work history, pension rights, use of financial services, and attitudes of a sample of U.S. families. Because the ownership of some assets is relatively concentrated in a small number of families, the survey would make a special effort to ensure proper representation of such assets by systematically oversampling wealthier families. Legal authorization and confidentiality: Section 2A of the Federal Reserve Act (FRA) requires that the Board and the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) 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.1 In addition, under section 12A of the FRA, the FOMC is required to implement regulations relating to the open market operations conducted by Federal Reserve Banks ‘‘with a view to accommodating commerce and business and with regard to their bearing upon the general credit situation of the country.’’ 2 The Board and the FOMC use the information obtained from the FR 3059 to help fulfill these obligations. The FR 3059 is a voluntary survey. Consultation outside the agency: The final survey questionnaire would be developed jointly by the Board and the contractor. The contractor would conduct the computer based interviews for this survey. The data to support the part of the survey sample selected by the Board would be provided by the 1 12 2 12 PO 00000 U.S.C. 225a. U.S.C. 263. Frm 00029 Fmt 4703 Statistics of Income Division (SOI) of the Internal Revenue Service under a contract that allows this use of the data as well as other more limited uses of the data for statistical adjustments to the final data and related purposes. As in past surveys, the sample selection and survey administration would be managed so that the Board would not be given any names of survey participants; SOI would not be given data to link survey responses with tax records; and the contractor would not be given income data derived from the tax returns. It is expected that the data collected would be published in summary form in the Federal Reserve Bulletin in 2023. A version of the microdata, which would be altered to protect the identity of individual respondents, would be made available to the public through the Board’s public website. None of the pretest data would be released to the public. The information collected on the FR 3059 that identifies the individual respondents may be exempt from disclosure under exemption 6 of the Freedom of Information Act, which protects information the disclosure of which would constitute a clearly unwarranted invasion of personal privacy.3 Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, January 28, 2021. Michele Taylor Fennell, Deputy Associate Secretary of the Board.
