TAGBILARAN CITY, July 25 (PIA) -- Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA) Provincial Statistician Jessamyne Anne Alcazaren has invited the Philippine Information Agency in Bohol to help them come up with solutions to make these research materials accessible to the community.

The PSA has been as mandated, primarily responsible for all national censuses and surveys, sectoral statistics, the consolidation of selected administrative recording systems and compilations of national accounts.

An agency that functions as the central authority in government primary data collection, the office in Bohol deploys enumerators and researchers for the conduct of periodic censuses, according to the PSA website.

These include data on population, housing, agriculture, fisheries, business and industry.

They also collect and compiles data for analysis to come up with statistical information relating to economics, social, demographic and general condition of the people in communities.

But most of the data collected here only gets submitted to Manila and is seldom presented to the people.

These surveys also make the data on the various aspects of socio economic life including agriculture, industry, trade, finance, prices and marketing information.

PSA enumerators gather the base data for incomes and expenditures, education, health care, culture and social situations for government planners and the public in general.

With the PSA empowered to release these data through press digestible materials, it might not be long when these can better be used by people in making better and well informed decisions. (rahc/PIA-7/Bohol)
