PSO's Message

This year is a testament of PSA Camarines Sur’s unwavering commitment to deliver relevant and reliable statistics and efficient civil registration services; steadfast dedication to give its humble share in nation building; and tireless resilience in the face of constant challenges and overwhelming workload.  I am deeply honoured and privileged to lead the province’s lean yet competent and outstanding personnel to this year of great accomplishments, with the support of PSA’s regional and national offices.

Camarines Sur ranks 11th most populous among the 81 provinces in the country with a population of 1,952,544 as of August 1, 2015, and growing at 1.32 percent annually.  It covers five congressional districts with 1,063 barangays spread in 35 municipalities and two cities.  In 2016, an additional of 77,156 civil registry records were received and processed in the province.  Close to 45 percent of Bicol Region’s household-based and establishment-based statistical activities and workload is lodged in the province.  Sixty percent of agricultural statistics in the region is also generated from the province.  On top of these, Camarines Sur is also home to the Naga City CRS Outlet which serves, on the average, 1,600 requesting clients during peak season.  All these activities make our work interestingly challenging.

Charged to do these enormous tasks are 12 regular personnel augmented by four job order staff, three service contractors, and sufficient number of hired statistical researchers during survey operations.  The CRS Naga City Outlet operates with 12 service contractors.  While originally Camarines Sur is allocated with 27 plantilla positions enough to cover the entire province, the reorganization, retirements, and deaths depleted the available personnel of the province.  With the implementation of RA 10625 and the fusion of all statistical activities of the government, the pressure for PSA Camarines Sur’s currently available personnel to deliver is even more emphasized.

I am very proud of the teamwork and cooperation of everyone, and for all these accomplishments, I give my most heartfelt gratitude and all credits to the men and women of PSA Camarines Sur.  CLEMENTE S. MANAOG - Provincial Statistics Officer
