NSO celebrates October as nat'l statistics month

by Rizalie A. Calibo

Siquijor (17 October) -- Statistics, both its practical and theoretical aspects takes center stage during the month of October as the whole country celebrates the National Statistics Month (NSM).

The month-long observance is celebrated by virtue of Presidential Proclamation No. 647 issued on September 20, 1990 by then President Corazon C. Aquino, declaring the month of October of every year as the National Statistics Month.

This year's celebration focuses on the theme "empowering Consumers Through Responsive Energy Statistics" and a Memorandum Circular was issued by the National Statistics Coordination Board (NSCB) enjoining all government agencies at the national and sub-national levels as well as the private sector to actively participate in and support in this month-long celebration.

The observance of this event aims to promote, enhance and instill nationwide awareness and appreciation on the importance and value of statistics to the different sector of the society. Moreover, it elicits cooperation and support from the general public in upgrading the quality and standards of statistics in the country.

To highlight the event, the regional and provincial NSO offices in Central Visayas have lined-up several activities for the celebration. The activities include the conduct of Statistics Quiz/Olympiad involving different schools/colleges, statistical radio trivia, lecture on statistics, book display and exhibits, mobile statistical and civil registration activities, orientation-seminars and lecture-forum on topics related to statistics.
