PSA calls Antiqueños to support agri-fishery census

SAN JOSE, Antique (PIA) -- The Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA) Antique enjoined everyone to support the 2022 Census on Agriculture and Fisheries (CAF) that started in early September this year with more than 150 personnel visiting sample households provincewide.

Provincial Statistics Officer Randy M. Tacogdoy emphasized the need for the respondents to answer the questionnaire with accurate information as the data gathered in the survey are important for local and national development undertakings.

PSA noted that the nationwide census is conducted every ten years to establish the structural characteristics of the country's agriculture and fishery industries and to provide basic data on agriculture, aquaculture, and fishing characteristics for use in national and local development planning by the government.

This is also instrumental to gather data on facilities and services available in the barangay.

Respondents include all households with agricultural, aquaculture, and fishing operators such as those engaged in crop production, livestock, poultry, insects/worm culturing, aquaculture, and/or fishing activity between January 1 to December 31, 2022.

Tacogdoy said that over the years, this census has been a source of comprehensive statistics on agriculture and fisheries for the use of the general public, government, business industries, and research.

The listing activity and household interview will be carried out in the 2022 CAF employing two methods of data collection, the Paper and Pen Personal Interview (PAPI) and Computer-Assisted Personal Interview (CAPI).

The questionnaire will collect information on the facilities, input dealers, and service providers related to agriculture, aquaculture, and fisheries that are present/available in the barangay.

Also included is information about the natural calamities experienced in the barangay in the last five years. (AGP/PSM/PIA Antique with reports from PSA)
