Submission For OMB Review; Comment Request

    DOC has submitted to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for 
clearance the following proposal for collection of information under 
the provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act (44 U.S.C. chapter 35).
    Agency: Bureau of the Census.
    Title: Census 2000 Dress Rehearsal--Integrated Coverage Measurement 
Activities (Independent Listing).
    Form Number(s): DX-1302.
    Agency Approval Number: None.
    Type of Request: New collection.
    Burden: 1,075 hours.
    Number of Respondents: 31,000.
    Avg. Hours Per Response: 2 minutes.
    Needs and Uses: The Bureau of the Census developed the Integrated 
Coverage Measurement (ICM) approach for measuring coverage during the 
decennial census and has been testing this approach in test census 
situations since 1995. We plan to further test the ICM approach during 
the 2000 Dress Rehearsal. We will conduct an Independent Listing using 
Form DX-1302 as a first step to obtain a complete housing unit 
inventory of all addresses within the 2000 Dress Rehearsal sites just 
before the dress rehearsal commences. The Independent Listing will 
undergo a quality assurance operation to ensure that the work performed 
is of acceptable quality and to verify that the correct block was 
    The listings will be matched to the census list of addresses; the 
unmatched cases will be sent to the field for reconciliation during a 
Housing Unit Follow-up operation. The resultant address listing will be 
used in the next phase of the ICM, the ICM Person Interview. An 
additional personal interview (the Evaluation Interview) will be 
conducted to measure the quality of the ICM itself. These activities, 
and the associated forms, will be submitted separately for OMB review.
    Affected Public: Individuals or households.
    Frequency: One time.
    Respondent's Obligation: Mandatory.
    Legal Authority: Title 13 U.S.C., Sections 141, 193 and 221.
    OMB Desk Officer: Jerry Coffey, (202) 395-7314.
