Chief Statistical Specialist's Message

The Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA) in its 6th year after it was created by virtue of the Philippine Statistics Act of 2013 or the Republic Act (RA) 10625 continues serving the public with this year’s theme, “Working SMARTER through Innovation.” The National Statistician ,Lisa Grace S. Bersales, in her message, said that we need Innovation for us to fulfil our Vision on being Solid, Responsive, and World Class; to Level up with our Quality Policy; to be Healthy PSA and Happy PSA; and to focus on High Impact Flagship activities. She added that to do this, we must consider People’s mind set; look at the Processes and the Services aligned to the Ease of Doing Business and Efficient Government Service Delivery (EODBEGSD); embrace Technologies; and build Leaders. As we do innovation, we must do things as Specific, Measurable, Agreed on, Realistic, Time Bound, and Recorded. It is in this perspective that the 2019 accomplishments of the PSA Catanduanes Provincial Statistics Office were smoothly implemented despite limited workforce.
In 2019, for our Statistical and Information Services, we successfully implemented the Householdbased, Industry-based, and Admin-based surveys. Major surveys include the Family Income and Expenditure Survey and the 2019 Functional Literacy, Education, and Mass Media Survey. The 2018 Census of Philippine Business and Industry (CPBI) being conducted every 6 years was implemented within the given time-frame. We did finish convening the 2020 Census of Population and Housing (CPH) Provincial and Municipal Census Coordination Board as preparatory activity for the 2020 CPH. This office continues to disseminate the data generated thru prints; radio program; social media; and through a gathering in a form of forum and lecture to students, elected officials, vulnerable groups, respondents, and other Data users.
On Civil Registration and Vital Statistics services, we adapt the project PSA Community Assistance on Registration and Education Services (PSA CARES). This is basically bringing the services closer to the people through the conduct of mobile registration and acceptance of request application for PSA issued documents. Included also in this project is encouraging Local Civil Registry Offices (LCROs) to digitize their records using the fast scan app. As we embrace technologies in data presentation, more infographics on Vital Statistics were produced as ready reference to data users, extracted from the Decentralized Vital Statistics System (DVSS).
To enhance partnership on statistics, as well as promote appreciation on the importance of having data and using it in planning and program implementation, we had the conduct of the 30th National Statistics Month celebration by having the 1st Data Cartooning contest offered to Grade 11 students, the Data User’s Forum and Launching of the 2020 CPH. The creation of the Provincial Statistics Committee became effective through an Executive Order by the Provincial Governor signed this year. These activities form part of our mandate on Statistical Planning and Coordination.
Another accomplishment is the massive information dissemination on the Philippine Identification Systems Act (RA 11055). Audio Video presentation on PhilID is being played at the frontline service area and in PSA organized and partnered lecture-forum activities.
All these were successfully done with the concerted efforts of the Men and Women of PSA Catanduanes, with the full support and cooperation of our partners namely: the Data Providers, Local Government Units, Media, National Government Agencies, NonGovernment Organizations, Service Providers, Data Users, our Family, and the Management. Above all, these would not be possible, without the Divine Intervention of our God the Almighty. Let us work smarter through innovation as we deliver our mandate with sincerity, dedication, and utmost responsibility in the coming years.
My heartfelt thanks to everyone!

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.
