Chief Statistical Specialist's Message

2018 is yet another challenging year for PSA Catanduanes. Marked by an office transfer and a temporary change in leadership, the employees have yet to deal with the loads of statitical surveys and civil registration targets from a limited number of employees. Still, the provincial office proved its perseverance and dedication once more. Amidst all expectations, the transitions are nothing but smooth sailing from the time of transfer to the time of leadership change, from the time of hitting the target to the time of beating the deadline, from the start of the year up to the very end. These successes are nothing sort of a miracle. These successes are made possible  because of the good work ethics and good working relations amongst the men PSA women of the psa combined with the collaborative relations of the office with various stakeholders, partner agencies, survey respondents and the media.  
It is but proper to extend my sincere appreciation to PSA Central Office for preparing us to be servant leaders through the different trainings we have attended for the year; to PSA RSSO V for two things, one is for sharing with us the expertise of Senior Statistical Specialist Ms. Anna G. Bajamundi, being the Officer-In-Charge for the office while I was away on study leave and two is for all the technical and administerial support extended to us all year round in the name of unparalleled service; and lastly to my colleagues for always embracing change in a positive way, whose dedication and perseverance has been exemplary from year on hence. 

To our stakeholders, likewise, the same amount of gratitude is deeply expressed as they played an important role in making things achievable. Thus, our thanks to the Local Government Units, the Provincial Health Office in particular for sponsoring one of our trainings and forever being partner in in-and-out of office undertakings; the National Government Agencies as one of our data sources; our dear survey respondents; the media i.e. Catanduanes Tribune and Radyo Pilipinas in particular; and above all to GOD without whom none would ever come to being and pass. 

Moving forward, let us continue to deliver our Mandate and fulfill our Mission witht he theme "Working Smarter through Innovation". Guided by this theme, we hope to deliver the best to our clients as we work one in happiness and health and mind.

Congratulations and God Bless us all!!!


The Province

Lying east of Bicol mainland, Catanduanes is an island paradise in the pacific, covering a total land area of 1,511.5 sq km. Your visit to this island is more than just wxploring its unspoiled beaches or enjoying surfing at Puraran Beach located on the northside. Catanduanes offers much more. It is rich in history, belnding quality with the peaceful jutting mountains all over the island. Adventurers hike the twisting trails of Gigmoto and San Andres and enjoy the cool refreshing waterfalls.

The religious visit to the ancient church of Bato and hike to the stone chapel a kilometer away where the first mass was believed to have been celebrated byt the Spanish conquerors. Island life is not quite as it seems. The capital town of Virac is irresistible for an oceanfront entertainment and arousing videoke bars. A hotel offers a breathtaking view of the entire island as its penthouse restaurant. Resorts abound to accomodate leisure-sseking travelers, with a chain of picnic sheds and cottages over a well-manicured, surrounded with lush greeneries.

The province comprises Catanduanes Island (also called Virac Island), the Panay Island, Lete Island, Palumbanes group of islands (Porongpong, Tignob and Calabagio) and a few other minor surrounding islets and rocks.

Catanduanes was a former sub-province of Ambos Camarines in the early 1900s and later of Albay. It gained provincial autonomy when Congressman Francisco Perfecto filled House Bill No. 301 which separated the province from Albay. It was approved on September 26, 1945 and subsequently signed into law by President Sergio Osmeña on October 24, 1945. Remigio Socito, the last Lieutenant Governor, was appointed as the first Provincial Governor. When elections were held in 1947, Alfonso V. Usero became the first elected Governor.
