SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: jspears on DSK121TN23PROD with NOTICES1 I. Abstract The Census Bureau plans to request clearance from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for the collection of data concerning the School Enrollment Supplement to be conducted in conjunction with the October Current Population Survey (CPS). The Census Bureau and the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) sponsor the basic annual school enrollment questions, which have been collected annually in the CPS for over 50 years. The current clearance expires August 31, 2022. This request is for a revision of the data collection. The Census Bureau plans to remove seven questions from the data collection that were added in October 2020, which were designed to understand how the COVID–19 pandemic was affecting how children received education given specific circumstances in the spring of 2020. This survey provides information on public/private elementary school, secondary school, and college enrollment, and on characteristics of private school students and their families, which is used for tracking historical trends, policy planning, and support. This survey is the only source of national data on the age distribution and family characteristics of college students and the only source of demographic data on preprimary school enrollment. As part of the federal government’s efforts to collect data and provide timely information to local governments for policymaking decisions, the survey provides national trends in enrollment and progress in school. VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:54 Feb 17, 2022 Jkt 256001 II.
