PSA-Caraga enjoins support for the conduct of CSS for 2022

BUTUAN CITY -- The Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA) Caraga will conduct its monthly Commercial Stocks Survey (CSS) for the year 2022.

PSA-Caraga regional director Dr. Rosalinda C. Apura enjoins all stakeholders to provide support to the conduct of the CSS, which aims to generate estimates of the current stocks inventory of rice and corn in registered grains businessmen/firms in the country.  

“The survey had been transferred from the National Food Authority (NFA) to PSA, per Section 3 Rule 3.5 of the Implementing Rules and Regulations of Republic Act No. 11203 or the Rice Tariffication Law,” said director Apura.

The survey will be undertaken by hired statistical researchers (SRs) and/or regular staff through face-to-face paper and pencil interview (PAPI) during the first four days of the reference month with the 1st day of the month as the reference period.

Apura also reminds the SRs and field supervisors to strictly observe proper health protocols in dealing with respondents during the survey. 

Likewise, data collected will be kept confidential.

“All the data and information collected by the hired SRs from sample households 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,” Apura added. (NCLM/PIA-Caraga)
