Other Information

i) The current Philippine System of National Accounts (SNA) adopted the 1993/2008 SNA of the United Nations.  The base year for constant prices has been changed from 1985 to 2000.

ii) Starting 2012, the Labor Force Survey (source of the employment data) adopted the 2009 Philippine Standard Industrial Classification (PSIC).  The data on gross valued added are based on the 1994 PSIC.

iii) In the 2009 PSIC, some industries were split and others merged and this led to comparability issues in the labor productivity data starting 2012.

iv) Before the creation of the PSA in 2013, the statistics were published in the name of the Bureau of Labor and Employment Statistics.
