NSO conducts survey on domestic visitors

Negros Occidental (8 October) -- Three nationwide surveys are being conducted simultaneously by the National Statistics Office this month.

The 2009 Household Survey on Domestic Visitors (HSDV), the 3rd Quarter Labor Force Survey (LFS) and the 2009 Survey on Overseas Filipinos (SOF).

NSO personnel will interview a total sample of 1,396 households all over the province. About 700 households from the total sample households will be asked on HSDV. Household members aged 15 years and over will be asked about labor force and their employment characteristics. Details about household members who left for abroad for the last five years will also be asked. On the other hand, all members aged 15 years old and over of the 700 households will be asked about the travels they had made from April to September 2009.

Provincial Statistics Officer Fred Sollesta of the NSO is encouraging the sample respondents of the households that will be visited, to be cooperative and patient and give the necessary information to the questions asked by the NSO personnel. The credibility, accuracy and reliability of data and information being produced by the NSO are highly dependent on the responses given by the sample respondents.

The 2009 HSDV is being undertaken jointly with the Department of Tourism. This survey aims to collect data on the travel characteristics and volume of domestic tourism in the country. The data to be gathered from this survey would be vital to the effective and efficient development and implementation of tourism plans and programs.

Specifically, the survey aims to provide baseline data to measure the volume of domestic tourism, determine the profile and travel characteristics of domestic visitors, identify the travel patterns of the Filipino households and estimate the extent and economic contribution of domestic tourism in the country.

On the other hand, the 2009 SOF is a nationwide survey that seeks to gather information on Filipino citizens who left for abroad during the last five years that is for the period October 2004 to September 2009. The 2009 SOF is geared towards obtaining the national estimates on the number of overseas Filipinos including overseas workers and their socio-economic characteristics and to provide estimates on the amount of cash and in kind transfer received by the families and mode of remittances.

The Labor Force Survey is a regular undertaking by the NSO. It is being conducted quarterly to have estimates on the levels of employment and unemployment in the country. *(NSO/PIA/EAD) [top]
