Agency: Department of Commerce, Bureau of the Census, Census Bureau
The Bureau of the Census (Census Bureau) is conducting the 2007 Annual Surveys in the Manufacturing Area. The 2007 Annual Surveys consist of the Current Industrial Reports surveys and the Survey of Industrial Research and Development. We have determined that annual data collected from these surveys are needed to aid the efficient performance of essential governmental functions and have significant application to the needs of the public and industry. The data derived from these surveys, most of which have been conducted for many years, are not publicly available from non-governmental or other governmental sources. As in prior years, these surveys will operate as separate collections of national statistical data on manufacturing. Because 2007 is an economic census year, the 2007 Annual Survey of Manufactures is being conducted as part of the economic census and is not covered in this notice of determination. The following two annual surveys in the manufacturing area will not be conducted in 2007: Survey of Plant Capacity Utilization, and the Survey of Pollution Abatement Costs and Expenditures.
