The Commercial Livestock and Poultry Survey (CLPS) is one of the major agricultural surveys conducted by the Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA). The quarterly survey aims to generate estimates on inventory, supply and disposition, and other related data of livestock and poultry commodities from commercial farms. For July 2021 round, collection of data for CLPS will be conducted on June 21-30 2021.


The unit of enumeration for CLPS are livestock and poultry farms with commercial type of operation. The survey is done quarterly for swine, layer and broiler; and semi-annual for carabao, cattle, goat, sheep and duck. The production data generated from these surveys are direct inputs to the valuation of production in Philippine agriculture and fisheries, and accordingly to the computation of Gross Domestic Product. Moreover, the survey supports the data needs of planners, policy and decision makers, and other stakeholders in the agriculture sector.


For the reference quarter, there will be 156 sample commercial farms in Caraga which will be visited by the hired Statistical Researchers (SRs). The SRs will gather the needed information of all animals tended by the operators for the period April to June 2021. All the data collected from sample farmer-producers shall be kept strictly confidential and shall not be used for purposes of taxation, investigation or regulation as provided under Article 55 of RA 10625.
