2018 Philippine Standard Geographic Code (PSGC)

No PSGC Update for the 1st Quarter of 2019

Reference Number: 2019-129
Release Date: 02 May 2019

There are no changes in the Philippine Standard Geographic Code (PSGC) in the first quarter of 2019 (January to March, 2019). Despite the enactment of Republic Act No. 11054 otherwise known as “Organic Law for the Bangsamoro Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (BARMM)”, changes in the PSGC are not yet reflected pending the issuance of the Implementing Rules and Regulation (IRR) of Republic Act No. 11054 that would clearly define the territorial jurisdiction of the BARMM. This was the recommendation of the Technical Working Group on Geographic Code (TWGGC) consisting of the Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG), Commission on Elections (COMELEC), Land Management Bureau (LMB), National Mapping and Resource Information Authority (NAMRIA), and the Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA).

Thus, the total number of regions, provinces, cities, municipalities, and barangays remained the same with the PSGC updates as of 31 December 2018:

Inter-levels As of 31 March 2019 As of 31 December 2018
Regions 17 17
Provinces 81 81
Cities 145 145
Municipalities 1,489 1,489
Barangays 42,045 42,045
