OLIVAREZ Supports Citywide Census By PSA


MAYOR Edwin L. Olivarez has called on all residents of ParaƱaque City to fully cooperate with the statistical researchers and enumerators from the Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA) who will conduct a census of population in the city beginning August 10 up to November 10 this year.

This developed as Olivarez said they are now in the process of training researchers which they hired specifically to do the house to house interviews as part of the city government’s initiatives to support the NSA’s 2015 Census of Population project.

The said national census aims to provide government executives, policy and decision makers and planners with accurate population data of all barangays in the country, which they can use in formulating policies and directions of their plans and programs.

It is designed to collect the complete enumeration of all households while providing information on some characteristics of population such as age, sex, educational attainment and marital status.

“We cannot overemphasize the importance of this census, since the results which they (PSA) will obtain from the campaign will be very helpful in providing us with facts which we would then use in crafting policies and programs that would best serve the interests of our people ” Mayor Olivarez said.

He added that the census would best help them in formulating policies concerning the delivery of basic services such as those about health, education, employment, housing, infrastructure, disaster relief and other socio-economic concerns.

“I therefore ask our people to give truthful and complete answers to statistical inquiries, so that the results would also be truthful and accurate” Mayor Olivarez stressed.
