“Kabilang Ka” is the slogan of the Philippines National Statistics Office (NSO) in conducting the 2010 Census of Population and Housing (CPH) beginning May 17 to June 14, 2010. This aims to take an inventory of the country’s total population and characteristics as well as living quarters in the country.
This up- to- date statistics will serve as a guide for our government planners and policy makers in terms of budget allotment and future local government development projects. Census questionnaires will include demographic and socio-economic characteristics, plus housing variables.
About 67, 000 personnel will be sent to the field as enumerators (Data collectors) to implement 2010 Census of Population and Housing with a budget of a little over 2.0 billion pesos.
Our outmost cooperation is necessary for the success of the Philippines 2010 Census of Population and Housing (CPH). The data collectors wearing official 2010 CPH identification cards will knock on every housing unit and interview each household. The interview will take only about 15 to 30 minutes. All information from the census will be held strictly confidential as guaranteed by Section 4 of Commonwealth Act No. 591 and Section 9 of BP 72.
Let us welcome the data collectors in our homes; this is a very simple way of being involved and helping our country.
I have been asked several times regarding the population of the country i.e barangay. region, cities and municipalities . I never thought this post would be able to help students in their assignments.
I have linked sites to help you in your assignments. Please do take time to browse them, so that you will be able to get the data you need in due time. Thanks for visiting my site.
