The Philippine Statistical Development Program (PSDP) is the country’s version of the National Strategies for the Development of Statistics (NSDS). It is a mechanism for setting the directions, thrusts and priorities of the Philippine Statistical System (PSS) in the medium term for the generation and dissemination of statistical information for policy- and decision-making of the government, private sector and general public. The PSDP contains priority statistical development programs and activities designed to provide vital information support to national development planning and international commitments. It is also a tool for integrating and coordinating the statistical activities of the government.
The following objectives of the PSDP are:
- To address the data requirements to monitor the PDP and other sectoral plans and regional plans
- To present structural and organizational changes in the statistical system
- To reflect updates and revisions at the international statistical level in the Philippine Statistical System
- To incorporate new and emerging statistical innovations and concerns in the PSS
