The National Statistics Office (NSO) announces the release of the 2012 Philippines in Figures (PIF) in compact disc (CD) or soft copy.

The PIF is a handy pocket-size booklet which contains more than two hundred indicators of the country's socio-economic activity. The data presented in this booklet are based on the current three year series which were gathered and researched from the different government agencies concerned and from NSO as well. Topics often asked by the general public and students, such as population and demographic characteristics; labor and employment; education and literacy; health and welfare; trade and tourism; and developments in other 15 sectors including agriculture, fishery forestry, transportation, communications, banking and finance, energy and water and industries like manufacturing, mining, and quarrying are being chronicled. A short historical background of the country, its government and its latest geographic composition are also incorporated in this issue.

For interested parties the soft copy may be obtained from the Databank and Information Services Division (DISD) and Publication Sales Unit (PSU) located at the 6th Floor, Solicarel Building I and Ground Floor, Solicarel Building II, Ramon Magsaysay Boulevard, Sta. Mesa Manila, with telephone numbers 7141715 and 7137081, respectively.
