PSA to conduct labor force survey poverty indicators survey in Caraga
PIA - Monday 19th June, 2017
BUTUAN CITY, June 19 -- The Philippine Statistics Authority - Regional Statistical Services Office XIII (PSA-Caraga) will conduct the July 2017 Labor Force Survey (LFS) and 2017 Annual Poverty Indicators Survey (APIS) from July 8 to 31, 2017.
The LFS is a nationwide survey of households conducted regularly to gather data on the demographic and socio-economic characteristics of the population. It is primarily geared towards the estimation of the levels of employment and unemployment in the country. It is conducted every first month of the quarter in the selected areas in the Philippines.
On the other hand, 2017 APIS is the tenth in a series of annual poverty indicators surveys conducted nationwide by PSA. It gathers data that can be used to generate non-income-based poverty indicators for monitoring the poverty situation in the country and for the formulation of policies and programs to improve the living conditions of the poor.
On a nationwide level, the July 2017 LFS covers about 45,000 sample households, while the 2017 APIS will cover only around 11,000 sample households. This sample size will allow the generation of reliable estimates of indicators of employment at the regional level. In Caraga Region, our Statistical Researchers will be visiting around 2,128 sample households for LFS (of which 532 sample households will also be covered for APIS).
The PSA Field Staff and selected trained Statistical Researchers in Caraga will do a comprehensive door-to-door interview using tablets (Computer Aided Personal Interviewing or the use of tablets instead of paper and pencil during interview was first implemented on January 2017 LFS round) to the sample households during enumeration period. The information collected shall be kept strictly confidential and shall not be used for purposes of taxation, investigation or regulation as provided under Article 55 of Republic Act 10625.
