Chief Statistical Specialist's Message

Hard work, commitment, and the enthusiasm to serve made all the 2020 activities possible to accomplish amidst the pandemic and natural calamities. This is indeed a challenging year for the men and women of PSA Catanduanes that with bravery, and perseverance, the conduct of 2020 Census of Population and Housing and other equally important surveys that needs face to face interaction in all phases of the activities were carried out. Civil Registration Services continues operating on an eight (8) hours per day for five (5) days a week and the services offered were extended to the level of the Local Civil Registry Offices by allowing them to accept request transactions for PSA issued documents just to address and consider the high cost of transportation and limited access to public transportation.

This year, we were able to sponsor the 1st Provincial Statistics Committee Meeting in the first quarter of 2020 and have it reorganized for a valid reason.

We owe all of the accomplishments in 2020, with zero casualties, to Almighty God for the full protection provided to us. Likewise, we acknowledged the big help of our partners: the LGU's, DepEd, Media, Religious groups, with special mention to the active Municipal Civil Registrars and LCRO Staff.

Our heartfelt thanks goes to our goods and services providers for the prompt delivery of quality goods and services used in the operation.

At this juncture, I would like to congratulate my PSA Catanduanes Family for a job well done and for not giving up despite the damages and challenges brought by Super Typhoon Rolly. The all-out support of the management kept us inspired and determined to keep going.

Let us continue to adapt to the new normal way of doing things by Strengthening Digital Information and Improving Quality of Statistical Products and Services. Together, we hold on to our Vision and Mission as we deliver our Mandate with Integrity, Adaptability, and Transparency.

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.
