PSA prepares to conduct the April 2020 Round of Commercial Livestock and Poultry Survey (CLPS)

The Commercial Livestock and Poultry Survey (CLPS) is one of the major quarterly agricultural surveys of the Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA) which aim to generate primary data on supply and disposition of animals from commercial farms. The purpose of the survey is to be able to determine/measure the performance of the livestock and poultry industry.

Data collection for swine, layer and broiler farms will be done quarterly while duck, goat, sheep, cattle, carabao farms and other animals will be done semi-annually. The survey operation for CLPS will be undertaken during the last two weeks of the third month of each quarter. For the April 2020 Round, the survey will be conducted on March 23-31, 2020.

PSA will hire Statistical Researchers (SRs) that will do face to face interview with sample households or sample establishments. All information collected by the hired Statistical Researchers from sample farmers 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.
