MAMBAJAO, Camiguin (PIA)--Camiguin Provincial Statistical Office (PSO) convened each municipality in the province in preparation for the upcoming 2022 Census of Agriculture and Fisheries (2022 CAF). The convening is critical in ensuring the cooperation of all government and private entities in each municipality for a smooth and unhindered flow of census operations locally. Following the resolution issued by the Philippine Statistics Authority, all local government units (LGUs) in the province spearheaded the convening within their jurisdiction. Members of the board were briefed on the methodology and objectives of the census. Further, PSO Camiguin emphasized the importance of the logistical, security, and other assistance needed during the pre-enumeration, enumeration, and post-enumeration activities of this undertaking. All local chief executives, national agencies, and other members of the board committed and assured PSO Camiguin that the LGUs and the concerned offices would fully support the census operation.
PSO Camiguin expressed its gratitude during the convening for the support the office had been receiving over the years and committed to striving further to deliver its mandate. PSA looks forward to a strengthened partnership with the LGU in meeting the increasing demand for reliable data for evidence-based policymaking at the lowest geographic level.
