PIA Press Release

NSO conducts survey on labor force, overseas Filipinos, domestic visitors

Cagayan de Oro City (28 October) -- The National Statistics Office (NSO) conducts three (3) simultaneous surveys this month of October nationwide.

The main target is the Labor Force Survey (LFS) which focuses on levels and trends of employment, unemployment, and underemployment of the country, as a whole, and for each of the administrative regions.

LFS is a nationwide survey of households done quarterly to gather data on the demographic and socio-economic characteristics of the population, aiming to provide a quantitative framework for the preparation of plans and formulation of policies affecting the labor market.

The stability and growth of a country's economy hinges on its ability to produce goods and services for both domestic and international use.

Labor represents an important factor of production, hence, the improvement of the quality of the labor force and efforts to make it more productive and responsive to growth are necessary for the development of the economy.

NSO enumerators are also tasked to include the Survey on Overseas Filipinos (SOF) and the 2009 Household Survey on Domestic Visitor (HSDV).

While SOF determines the number and kind of work of Filipino overseas employment, HSDV is designed to collect data on the travel characteristics and volume of domestic tourism n the country.

Data gathered on household information on domestic tourism are vital to the effective and efficient development and implementation of tourism plans and programs.

The surveys started on the first week of this month and will culminate on the October 31. (NSO-10) [top]
