The Civil Service Commission Regional Office No. 6 (CSCRO6) supports the celebration of the National Statistics Month (NSM) this October.
Pursuant to Presidential Proclamation No. 647 signed by then President Corazon C. Aquino on September 20, 1990, the month of October will be the National Statistics Month.
In the Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA) Memorandum Circular No. 01-14, this year’s theme is “NSM at 25 and Beyond: Solid and Responsive Philippine Statistical System in Support of Globalization and Regional Economic Integration.”
The observance of the said event aims to promote, enhance, and instill nationwide awareness and appreciation of the importance and value of statistics to the different sectors of society and elicit the cooperation and support of the public in upgrading the quality and standards of statistics in the country.
In line with the activity, the PSA requests participating agencies to display the NSM streamer in their building facade throughout the month of October. Activities in support of the event such as symposia, workshops, orientation seminars, exhibits, slide shows, and publication of statistical reports, indicators, and other relevant information may also be undertaken.
