PSA to conduct 2021 4th Quarter CrPS

BUUTAN CITY -- To generate production estimates on crops other than palay and corn at the national, regional and provincial levels, the Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA) will conduct this year’s 4th quarter Crops Production Survey (CrPS) in Caraga region.


PSA-Caraga regional director Dr. Rosalinda C. Apura said the quarterly survey will be conducted on November 19 to 30, through a face-to-face paper and pencil interview (PAPI) by the hired Statistical Researchers (SRs) and/or regular staff of the PSA.


CrPS is a regular quarterly survey conducted by the PSA on the last ten days of the second month of the quarter in all provinces of the region. 


“This is simultaneously collected with the Farm Price Survey. The CrPS covers more than 280 crops sub-classified under three commodity groupings, namely: Non-Food and Industrial Crops; Fruit Crops; and Vegetables and Root Crops,” said Apura. 


It has production, area planted/harvested and number of bearing trees/hills/vines as unit of analysis. 


Director Apura assured that all the data and information collected by the hired SRs 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. (NCLM/PIA-Caraga)
