                 The Department of Commerce will submit the following information
                collection request to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for
                review and clearance in accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of
                1995, on or after the date of publication of this notice. We invite the
                general public and other Federal agencies to comment on proposed, and
                continuing information collections, which helps us assess the impact of
                our information collection requirements and minimize the public's
                reporting burden. Public comments were previously requested via the
                Federal Register on March 16, 2021 during a 60-day comment period. This
                notice allows for an additional 30 days for public comments.
                 Agency: U.S. Census Bureau, Department of Commerce.
                 Title: Form BC-170, U.S. Census Employment Application and Form BC-
                171, Additional Applicant Information.
                 OMB Control Number: 0607-0139.

                 Type of Request: Regular submission, Request for Extension Without
                Change.
                 Number of Respondents: 30,000 annually for a total of 90,000 over
                the three year period.
                 Average Hours per Response: 20 minutes.
                 Burden Hours: 10,000 annually for a total of 30,000 over the three
                year period.
                 Needs and Uses: The BC-170 is an integral part of the application
                process for persons interested in applying for Census field positions.
                Administrative staff review the information provided on this form to
                determine eligibility for our field jobs. Hiring officials use the form
                to evaluate applicants in order to select the best possible candidates
                for these positions.
                 While the BC-171 is a voluntary form which collects information not
                used to make selection decisions, it serves to allow the Census Bureau
                to comply with Federal directives, described in Section 11 of this
                document, Justification for Sensitive Questions, and to evaluate its
                recruiting sources. The Education and Recruiting Sources information
                gathered on the BC-171 will assist the Census Bureau in determining if
                recruiting advertisements and tactics are working to produce qualified
                applicants and determine if persons at all education levels are
                attracted to the positions available.
                 Affected Public: Individuals interested in applying for Census
                field positions.
                 Frequency: Applicants will only be required to use these forms one
                time unless, after two years, they have not been selected for a
                position and wish to reapply.
                 Respondent's Obligation: Voluntary.
                 Legal Authority: This collection is authorized by Title 13, United
                States Code, Section 23 a and c.
                 This information collection request may be viewed at
                www.reginfo.gov. Follow the instructions to view the Department of
                Commerce collections currently under review by OMB.

                collection should be submitted within 30 days of the publication of
                this notice on the following website www.reginfo.gov/public/do/PRAMain.
