Tacloban City (October 1) -- Some 50 agencies from the government sector, local government units, the academe, non-government organizations, and other stakeholders joined today the kick-off activities of the 20th National Statistics Month celebration in Eastern Visayas which started with a motorcade from Tacloban City to Palo, Leyte carrying this year's theme, "Enhancing Security Sector Statistics for Good Governance, Peace and Sustainable Development."

Director Buenaventura C. Go-Soco, Jr. of the National Economic and Development Authority, chairman of the Regional Statistical Coordination Committee underscores the importance of security sector statistics during the opening program hosted by the Office of Civil Defense, held at the Robinsons Mall, Tacloban City.

Standardization and availability of security sector statistics is important for better governance and attaining peace and sustainable development, Go-Soco said.

Go-Soco informed also that generation of improved and relevant security sector statistics is vital as it would serve as basis for better plans, programs and policies that would lead to the attainment of a stable and secure environment conducive to human development.

The Philippine National Police made a data presentation on crime statistics in the region from January August, 2009 while the Parole and Probation Administration Department of Justice shared their agency's profile, programs and thrusts.

Other NSM activities lined up for the month include photo exhibit, symposia, orientation seminars, trainings, essay writing contest, slogan and poster making contest, statistical contests/quiz, film showing, information and education campaign activities such as TV and radio guestings, kapihan, and hanging of NSM streamers.

The month of October of every year is celebrated as the National Statistics Month pursuant to Presidential Proclamation No. 647 aimed to promote, enhance and instill awareness and appreciation of the importance and value of statistics to the different sectors of society and to elicit the cooperation and support of the general public in upgrading the quality and standards of statistics in the country.
