PSA to launch the 2022 Census on Agriculture and Fisheries

SAN FERNANDO CITY, La Union (PIA) – The Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA) will launch the 2022 Census on Agriculture and Fisheries (CAF) this September.
 
CAF is undertaken every 10 years by virtue of Executive Order No. 352 s. 1996 to collect and compile basic information on the agricultural and fishery sectors in the country.
 
According to Teresa Olarte, supervising statistical specialist of the PSA-Regional Statistical Services Office 1, CAF will not only generate basic information but will also provide the sampling frame for other surveys and the reference for development planning.
 
The census will begin on September 4 until October 23.
 
In Region 1, there are 1,300 enumerators trained for the conduct of CAF.
 
All the households in Pangasinan with agricultural and fisheries operators will be enumerated.
 
However, sample households will be surveyed in the provinces of Ilocos Norte, Ilocos Sur, and La Union.
 
“Sa tatlong probinsya, although lahat ng munisipyo at siyudad ay mapapasyalan, pero hindi lahat ng barangay nito ay mapupuntahan ng ating mga statistical researchers,” Olarte said.
 
Olarte is soliciting support for target stakeholders to participate in the conduct of the 2022 CAF.
 
Meanwhile, the Regional Statistical Committee passed Resolution No. 3 s. 2023 to enjoin all the regional line agencies, local government units, and the private sector to support and provide assistance for the conduct of the 2022 CAF.
 
Said resolution will be endorsed to the Regional Development Council Ilocos for approval and implementation. (JCR/AMB/CGRC, PIA Region 1)
