The Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA) releases the 2016 Advance Release Calendar (ARC) for designated statistics of the Philippine Statistical System (PSS).
The ARC is a mechanism designed to promote transparency, timeliness, and accessibility of government statistics by providing advanced information to the public as to what, when and from what official source the statistics will become available. It gives the specific dates on when the various statistics will be released by government agencies for the benefit of the data users.
The PSA monitors a total of 56 designated statistical activities that are most critical and essential for social and economic planning/analysis outlined in the System of Designated Statistics (SDS). The SDS defines the frequency of data production, schedule of data dissemination and the geographic levels of disaggregation, among others, of the different designated statistical activities per Executive Order No. 352. The system also establishes priorities for data production and hence provides a means for more rational resource allocation among government statistical activities.
The 2016 Advance Release Calendar for Designated Statistics is available on the PSA website on http://www.psa.gov.ph/
