CATBALOGAN CITY  –  The National Statistic Office –Samar (NSO) said it is now focused on upgrading standards of statistics as it ushers National Statistics Month this October.

This was the information gathered in a meeting with the statistical community in Catbalogan City, Samar on September 14, Friday.

NSO-Samar with the strong support of the statistical community set the calendar of activities for the 23rd National Statistics Month (NSM).

The 23rd National Statistics Month celebration aims to elicit the cooperation and support of the general public in upgrading the quality and standards of statistics in the country.

This activity is pursuant to Presidential Proclamation No. 647, declaring the month of October of every year as the NSM, issued on September 20, 1990 by then President Corazon Aquino.

The observance of this event has two fold objectives, to promote, enhance and instill nationwide awareness and appreciation of the importance and value of statistics to the different sectors of society and to elicit the cooperation and support of the general public in upgrading the quality and standards of statistics in the country.

The 23rd NSM dubbed as “Monitoring Progress on Decent Work through Statistics: Pathway to Inclusive Growth” kick-off activity will be on October 2 that will start with a mass and a motorcade around the Catbalogan City proper and a short program at Redaja Hall, DepEd, Catbalogan City.

In line with the celebration, each agency member of the statistical community is scheduled as guest in PIA 8-Samar Huruhimangraw radio program every Thursday of October as part of its advocacy.

On October 19, NSO and DepEd schools will conduct a statistics quiz bee for senior high students.

Around October 25-26, NSO and DepEd will also conduct a data appreciation seminar to Senior High students to two selected schools in Catbalogan.

To culminate the NSM month-long celebration, NSO together with the Statistical Community will run a data dissemination seminar at Waling-waling Inn, Catbalogan City.
