PSA TO CONDUCT COMMERCIAL LIVESTOCK AND POULTRY SURVEY (CLPS) FOR OCTOBER 2021 ROUND
The Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA) will conduct the Commercial Livestock and Poultry Survey (CLPS) on September 20-30, 2021. The quarterly survey aims to generate estimates on inventory, supply and disposition, and other related data of livestock and poultry commodities from commercial farms. The unit of enumeration for CLPS are livestock and poultry farms with commercial type of operation.
The CLPS 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 period, collection of data will be undertaken by hired Statistical Researchers (SRs) with an expected output of three sample farms per day. The field enumeration will be done through face-to-face interview with the SRs strictly following precautionary measures against the Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) such as social distancing, use of face mask and face shield, among others.
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.
