Antique towns hold CBMS data review

SAN JOSE, Antique -- The Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA) Antique Provincial Statistical Office conducted a series of Municipal Data Reviews of the Preliminary Tabulation results for the 2022 Community-Based Monitoring System (CBMS).

This was funded by the Local Government Units (LGU) of Sebaste, Culasi, Patnongon, San Remigio, and Tobias Fornier held on Aug. 24 to Sept.18, 2023.

Jeffrey G. Conlu, EnP and Senior Statistical Specialist, said that the Municipal Data Review is an essential activity of the CBMS to verify data inconsistencies and make pertinent validation at the household and barangay level.

From the data review, the LGUs must prepare the data turnover requirements needed prior to the conduct of the Data Turnover Ceremony (DTC) which include the designation of the Data Protection Officer (DPO), Data Privacy Manual or Privacy Policy, and Plans/Programs for managing and securing data, among others.

The activities were participated in by the members of the CBMS Coordinating Board including personnel from the Municipal Planning and Development Office, Social Welfare and Development Office, Local Civil Registry Office, Public Employment and Services Office,  Agriculture Office, Engineering Office, Health Office, Local Government Operations Office, Sangguniang Bayan Office, and staff from other relevant departments.

Attendees of the review emphasized the need for CBMS as a tool to enhance local-level data and establish data-driven planning and investment programming that targets appropriate programs and beneficiaries at their respective LGUs. (AGP/PSM/PIA Antique with reports from PSA)
