(Posted 27 April 2015)


The Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA) releases the Report on the Highlights of the Observance of 25th National Statistics Month (NSM) in October 2014 and the Report on the 25 Years of NSM Celebrations.  Since 1990, the Philippine Statistical System (PSS) annually celebrates the National Statistics Month (NSM) in October pursuant to Presidential Proclamation No. 647 dated September 20, 1990.

The Report on the Highlights of the Observance of 25th National Statistics Month (NSM) celebration in October 2014, which can be accessed through the following link: of the 25th National Statistics Month.pdf, features the 25th NSM Opening and Closing Ceremonies, NSM Awards, Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP) – Department of Education (DepEd) Oratorical Contest, and Philippine Statistical System (PSS) activities conducted in line with the nationwide observance of last year’s NSM. 

Meanwhile, the Report on the 25 Years of NSM Celebrations traces the milestones of the 25 years of statistical advocacy in the Philippines through the NSM.  The report also includes an assessment of the relevance, effectiveness, use of resources, impacts and sustainability of the outputs and outcomes of the NSM celebrations. The report is available for download at: 25 Years of National Statistics Month (NSM) celebrations.pdf.

In October 2015, the PSS will once again celebrate the NSM.  The 26th NSM, which will be hosted by Department of Health (Opening Ceremony) and the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (Closing Ceremony), will underscore a theme relating to health statistics.

Preparations for the 13th National Convention on Statistics (NCS) for conduct in October 2016 shall also commence this year. The NCS is a triennial event, which gathers statisticians and professionals in related fields from the government, academe and private sector to exchange ideas and discuss recent statistical challenges and developments in the PSS.

For the past years, the NSM and the NCS became key advocacy initiatives of the PSS to communicate official statistics to the general public. Thus the PSA would like to thank the various government agencies, private sector groups, academe and civil society organizations for actively and regularly partaking in the annual NSM celebrations, which paved the way for better quality and utilization of statistics in the country.

For inquiries on the 26th NSM and 13th NCS, interested parties can contact Interim Assistant National Statistician Regina S. Reyes at telephone number: 895-2439 or e-mail address:
