PSA-10 urges support for agri, fisheries census

CAGAYAN DE ORO CITY (PIA)--The Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA)-10 called on government agencies and instrumentalities, local government units, and agriculture stakeholders to support the conduct of the 2022 Census on Agriculture and Fisheries (CAF).

PSA-10 Officer-in-Charge Janith Aves said the CAF is a large-scale government undertaking geared towards the collection and compilation of basic information on the agricultural and fishery sectors of the country.

Primarily, the census seeks to determine the structural characteristics of agriculture and fishery sectors in the country. It also aims to provide basic data on agriculture, aquaculture, and fishing characteristics for use in the government's national and local development planning.

Activities that will be covered by the 2022 CAF are growing crops, livestock and poultry, aquaculture, and fisheries from January 1, 2022 to December 31, 2022.

Aves said the data collected from the census will constitute the bases from which policymakers and planners formulate their plans and programs for the country's socioeconomic development.

The 2022 CAF, she added, is the seventh in a series of decennial agricultural census and the sixth in the series of decennial census of fisheries in the country since 1903. 

The nationwide census will commence on September 4, 2023, to coincide with the observance of National Agriculture and Fisheries Census Month. (APB/PIA-10)
