The Philippine Statistics Authority will conduct the April 2020 Round of Palay Production Survey (PPS), Corn Production Survey (CPS) and Backyard Livestock and Poultry Survey (BLPS) simultaneously in all the provinces of the region this coming April 1-10, 2020. PPS and CPS are quarterly activities designed to generate statistics on palay and corn production, area harvested, yield and other information at the provincial level. On the other hand, BLPS aims to generate data on supply and disposition of animals from backyard farms or small raisers. Results of these surveys will serve as inputs to planners and policy makers on matters concerning rice and corn industry, and livestock and poultry sub-sectors.
Data collection is to be undertaken by hired Statistical Researchers that will do face to face interview to sample households.
All collected information shall be kept strictly confidential and as such shall be inadmissible as evidence in any proceeding as provided under Article 55 of RA 10625.
