The quest of Philippine Statistics Authority- Albay Provincial Office for 2017 is,  indeed, a breakthrough. It was a testament that it takes more than effort and perseverance to achieve success. It takes dedicated people who are willing to invest themselves in yielding worthy triumphs to deliver solid, responsive, and world- class service.  
 In 2017, PSA Albay humbly earned its utmost feat, the successful pursuit of earning the ISO 9001:2015 Certification, which came from the teamwork and heavy labor of Philippine Statistics Authority; thus, of the PSA Albay team. Also, we were awarded as the 14th Place in the Provincial Category and 2nd Place in Partnership and Linkages Provincial Category in the 2017 Field Awards.  Moreover, looking back to more achievements and accomplishments of PSA Albay, we gladly provide you our 2017 Annual Report - a genuine documentation on how we dedicatedly fulfilled our mission in bringing statistical and civil Registration service and awareness through statistical operations, information dissemination, partnership and linkages, and civil registration and human resource activities. 
With these, it is of my sincere and warm regards to thank everyone for giving their best shot in accomplishing every appointed task, through adversities we, PSA Albay team, remain resilient and steadfast. To our stakeholders, especially to the Association of Civil Registrars of Albay (ACRAI), Inc., I am truly pleased of the constant support and cooperation you give in bringing our service closer to the people. To the Top Management and to our dearest Regional Director, Engr. Cynthia L. Perdiz, I would like to extend my deepest gratitude for the endless support and guidance you give to our undertakings throughout 2017. Above all, to our Creator who made all things possible. 
 As we venture 2018 carrying an ISO 9001:2015 Certification, I am optimist that PSA Albay is geared-up to bring Statistical Operations and Civil Registration services into another level.

The Province

Albay is a province of the Philippines located in the Bicol Region in southeastern Luzon Island. The name Bikol first came to be known as the name of the biggest and longest river in the region. The river comes from the outflow of lakes and springs from the provinces of Albay, Camarines Sur and Camarines Norte and form a large stream that exits in the San Miguel Bay, off the shores of Camarines Sur.

The people of the region are called Bikolanos and the language is called Bikol. The citizens of Albay are called Albayanos. Albay is a province composed of 15 towns and 3 cities. The capital of the province is Legazpi City. It was named after Miguel Lopez de Legazpi, the Spanish conquestador who came to the Philippines in 1565 and started the massive colonization. The country became the colony of Spain for the next 300 years.

As a result, the Albayanos became devout Catholics. The symbol most associated with Albay is Mayon Volcano, a near perfectly-shaped active volcano, 2,462 metres (8,077 ft) high, which could be seen throughout its 13 towns and 3 cities as well as in the surrounding provinces of Sorsogon, Masbate and Catanduanes.

Albay has a total land area of 2,554.06 square kilometres (986.13 square miles). Aside from Mayon Volcano, it has two other major peaks: Mount Masaraga and Mount Malinao. The western coast of the province is mountainous but not as prominent as the eastern range with the highest elevation at around 490 metres (1,610 ft). Among these mountains are Mount Catburawan in Ligao and Mount Pantao in Oas & Libon.
