PIA Press Release

NSO Iligan steps up 2010 POPCEN advocacy

by Lorry V. Gabule

Iligan City (15 March) -- "Kabilang Ako" is this year?s sloganPopulation and Housing (CPH).

"We need the support of the media in providing people information on how important an individual be counted in this nationwide undertaking," said Provincial Statistics Officer Ruben Gamale of the National Statistics Office (NSO) in Iligan City / Lanao del Norte provincial office, during a recent press briefing.

Gamale explained that the 2010 CPH will be conducted to provide government planners, policy makers, and administrators with data on which to base their social and economic development plans and programs.

Census taking will begin on May 17, 2010 and will last for about 23 days.

It will be the 13th census of population and the 6th census of housing that will be conducted in the country since the first census was undertaken in 1903.

NSO conducts population census every 10 years beginning in 1980, without prejudice to the undertaking of special censuses on agriculture, industry, commerce, housing and other sectors as may be approved by the National Economic and Development Authority (NEDA).

Gamale emphasized that on May 1, 2010 (12:01 a.m.) is the census reference date for the 2010 CPH. This means that all population counts to be recorded shall pertain to this date and time.

The public school teachers shall be utilized as the Census Enumerators (ENs). They will gather the data through house-to-house visits and personal interview of the household head or any responsible member of the household.

Gamale further said, "CPH is the entire process of collecting, compiling, evaluating, analyzing, publishing and disseminating data about the population and the living quarters in a country."

It entails the listing and recording of the characteristics of each individual and each living quarter as of a specific time and within a specified territory.

Thus, we appeal to the media to actively participate in the dissemination of the 2010 CPH, which is designed to take an inventory of the total population and housing units in the Philippines and to collect information about their characteristics, Gamale concluded. (PIA LDN) [top]
