(See ADDRESSES section.) SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Background An important aspect of the mission of the BLS is to disseminate to the public the maximum amount of information possible. Not all data are publicly available because of the importance of maintaining the confidentiality of BLS data. However, the BLS has opportunities available on a limited basis for eligible researchers to access confidential data for purposes of conducting valid statistical analyses that further the mission of the BLS as permitted in the Confidential Information Protection and Statistical Efficiency Act (CIPSEA). The BLS makes confidential data available to eligible researchers through three major programs: 1. The Census of Fatal Occupational Injuries (CFOI), as part of the BLS occupational safety and health statistics program, compiles a count of all fatal work injuries occurring in the U.S. in each calendar year. Multiple sources are used in order to provide as complete and accurate information concerning workplace fatalities as possible. A research file containing CFOI data is made available offsite to eligible researchers. 2. The National Longitudinal Surveys of Youth (NLSY) is designed to document the transition from school to work and into adulthood. The NLSY collects extensive information about youths’ labor market behavior and PO 00000 Frm 00078 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 educational experiences over time. The NLSY includes three different cohorts: The National Longitudinal Survey of Youth 1979 (NLSY79), the NLSY79 Young Adult Survey, and the National Longitudinal Survey of Youth 1997 (NLSY97). NLSY data beyond the public use data are made available in greater detail through an offsite program to eligible researchers. 3. The BLS makes available data from several employment, compensation, prices, and working conditions surveys to eligible researchers for onsite use. Eligible visiting researchers can access these data in researcher rooms at the BLS national office in Washington, DC or at a Federal Statistical Research Data Center (FSRDC). II. Current Action Office of Management and Budget clearance is being sought for the BLS Data Sharing Program. In order to provide access to confidential data, the BLS must determine that the researcher’s project will be exclusively statistical in nature and that the researcher is eligible based on guidelines set out in CIPSEA, the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) implementation guidance on CIPSEA, and BLS policy. This information collection provides the vehicle through which the BLS will obtain the necessary details to ensure all researchers and projects comply with appropriate laws and policies. 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.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Background

    An important aspect of the mission of the BLS is to disseminate to 
the public the maximum amount of information possible. Not all data are 
publicly available because of the importance of maintaining the 
confidentiality of BLS data. However, the BLS has opportunities 
available on a limited basis for eligible researchers to access 
confidential data for purposes of conducting valid statistical analyses 
that further the mission of the BLS as permitted in the Confidential 
Information Protection and Statistical Efficiency Act (CIPSEA).
    The BLS makes confidential data available to eligible researchers 
through three major programs:
    1. The Census of Fatal Occupational Injuries (CFOI), as part of the 
BLS occupational safety and health statistics program, compiles a count 
of all fatal work injuries occurring in the U.S. in each calendar year. 
Multiple sources are used in order to provide as complete and accurate 
information concerning workplace fatalities as possible. A research 
file containing CFOI data is made available offsite to eligible 
researchers.
    2. The National Longitudinal Surveys of Youth (NLSY) is designed to 
document the transition from school to work and into adulthood. The 
NLSY collects extensive information about youths' labor market behavior 
and educational experiences over time. The NLSY includes three 
different cohorts: The National Longitudinal Survey of Youth 1979 
(NLSY79), the NLSY79 Young Adult Survey, and the National Longitudinal 
Survey of Youth 1997 (NLSY97). NLSY data beyond the public use data are 
made available in greater detail through an offsite program to eligible 
researchers.
    3. The BLS makes available data from several employment, 
compensation, prices, and working conditions surveys to eligible 
researchers for onsite use. Eligible visiting researchers can access 
these data in researcher rooms at the BLS national office in 
Washington, DC or at a Federal Statistical Research Data Center 
(FSRDC).

II. Current Action

    Office of Management and Budget clearance is being sought for the 
BLS Data Sharing Program. In order to provide access to confidential 
data, the BLS must determine that the researcher's project will be 
exclusively statistical in nature and that the researcher is eligible 
based on guidelines set out in CIPSEA, the Office of Management and 
Budget (OMB) implementation guidance on CIPSEA, and BLS policy. This 
information collection provides the vehicle through which the BLS will 
obtain the necessary details to ensure all researchers and projects 
comply with appropriate laws and policies.

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.
