SURIGAO CITY, Surigao del Norte, May 16 - The Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA) here conducts a Tablet-Aided Geotagging of Building Structures from May 15, 2017 to September 30, 2017 across the province of Surigao del Norte.

The activity aims to come up with accurate and reliable digitized maps for use in the post-census evaluation, validation of sampling frame for household-based and industry- based surveys, and as basis for delineation of growth areas in preparation for the 2020 Census of Population and Housing.

Map Data Collectors or MDCs wearing official Geotagging IDs of the PSA will visit barangays of Surigao del Norte to identify and collect data on building structures.

In this activity, there will be a two-minute interview with the household to ask basic information, as well as picture taking of the building.

The public is assured that all information collected in this activity shall be kept confidential as provided under the Republic Act No. 10625.

The PSA calls for public to support the geotagging activity by accommodating its MDCs who will visit the barangays as they collect information on buildings.
