PSA RSSO prepares for the conduct of the Agricultural Wage Rate Survey (AWRS) January 2020 Survey Round in the region

The Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA) enjoined the public to support the conduct of the AWRS which will start on 13 January 2020 until 31 January 2020.

The said survey is conducted to generate estimates of average wage rates of workers in agriculture such as cost of farm labor or daily wage rates of palay, corn, coconut and sugarcane farm workers in the country. Specifically, it also aims to:
1) Determine the national and regional averages and variations on wage rates;
2) Generate gender-based data for wage rates; and
3) Determine the extent of women’s participation in agricultural production activities.

In Caraga, a total of 140 sample households will be interviewed. Eleven (11) Statistical Researchers (SRs) will be involved in the activity.

All the data and information collected by the hired SRs 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.
