Antiqueño is lone RP participant in "poverty measurements course" in Jakarta

San Jose, Antique (21 October) -- An Antiqueño was the only participant from our country to attend the 5th Regional Course on Poverty Measurements in Jakarta, Indonesia.

Mr. Jesus F Escote, Jr., Provincial Statistics Officer of the Province of Antique, represented the Philippines together with twenty-five (25) other participants representing 20 countries in Asia and the Pacific Region including Indonesia.

The training was held at the Education and Training Center Jakarta just recently.

The course was intended to strengthen the capability of the national statistical services to take part in the process of poverty identification, measurement, and monitoring. It also aims to help participants develop basic skills for carrying out poverty analysis on household survey data with the aid of computer software.

The topics discussed were; Understanding Poverty; Poverty Indicators; Poverty Lines, theory and practices; Measures of Poverty; Inequality Measurement, and Poverty Profiles.

Escote said there was an exchange of ideas and information among participating countries on the methodology in determining poverty estimates/ statistics, and also information in some practices of the countries in solving poverty in consonant with meeting the Millenium Development Goal's (MDGs).

The main Instructor of the course was Jose Ramon Albert, a faculty member of UN-SIAP. A team of BPS-Statistics Indonesia also participated in giving lectures on Indonesia Case Studies and STATA practices.

The training was jointly organized by the United Nations Statistical Institute for Asia and the Pacific (SIAP) and BPS - Statistics Indonesia of the Government of Indonesia (PIA) [top]
