Meanwhile, the names of Barangay Saint Francis (Gasak) from City of Meycauayan, Bulacan, and Barangay Magallungon (Sta.Teresa) from the municipality of Lal-Lo, Cagayan were reverted to the previous naming format, pending the verification of TWGGC on the correct names of the said barangays. During the third quarter 2020 PSGC updates, the old names of barangay/municipality/city/province previously displayed together with their new names were transferred to a separate column in the PSGC masterlist.

Notwithstanding these updates in the PSGC, the total number of local government units remained the same as shown in the table below:

Geographic-level Total Number (as of 30 June 2021)
Region 17
Province 81
City 146
Municipality 1488
Barangay 42046

The updated online PSGC database and masterlist can be accessed at psa.gov.ph/classification/psgc/.
