About PSA

The Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA) is the national statistical agency of the Philippines. Its main objective is to provide the government, the business sector, and the general public with timely and reliable data on a wide range of economic and social indicators. The PSA was created in 2013 through the merger of three government agencies: the National Statistics Office, the National Statistical Coordination Board, and the Bureau of Agricultural Statistics.

The PSA’s mandate covers the collection, compilation, analysis, and dissemination of statistical information on various sectors of the Philippine economy. It provides a wide range of statistics, including population and demographic data, economic indicators, agriculture and fisheries statistics, social welfare data, and environmental statistics. The PSA is also responsible for conducting the country’s census, which takes place every 10 years.

One of the key strengths of the PSA is its commitment to using the latest statistical methods and technologies to produce accurate and reliable data. The agency has adopted a range of innovative tools and methods, including data visualization, geographic information systems (GIS), and big data analytics. These technologies enable the PSA to analyze large amounts of data quickly and efficiently and to present this information in a clear and easy-to-understand format.

The PSA also places a strong emphasis on data quality and accuracy. It has established a rigorous quality control process to ensure that data is collected and processed in a consistent and reliable manner. The agency also works closely with other government agencies, academic institutions, and civil society organizations to improve the accuracy and completeness of its data.

In addition to its statistical work, the PSA plays a key role in promoting data literacy and statistical awareness among the Filipino public. The agency conducts regular workshops, training sessions, and seminars to help people better understand statistical concepts and encourage the use of data in decision-making.

Ultimately, the Philippine Statistics Authority is essential for the country’s economic and social development. Its work is crucial for policymakers, businesses, and the general public, and it is widely respected for its commitment to producing accurate and reliable data.

Interestingly, PSA calls for Applicants for Contract of Service Workers (COSWs) for Community-Based Statistics Division (CBSD).
