05 October 2021 – CALAPAN CITY. The Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA) MIMAROPA announces the conduct of the October 2021 Labor Force Survey (LFS) and its rider surveys, the 2021 Survey on Overseas Filipinos (SOF) and the Awareness Survey on the Philippine Competition Commission (PCC) and the Philippine Competition Act (PCA), which will be undertaken from 08 to 30 October 2021.
October 2021 LFS involves the collection of data on labor and employment. It also gathers the demographic and socio-economic characteristics of the labor force. SOF is designed to gather data on the number and socio-economic characteristics of overseas Filipinos and their remittances. PCC involves the gathering of data in order to gauge household awareness of the PCC and the PCA, and in so doing generate insights on how best to undertake the advocacy.
The October 2021 LFS has a regional sample of approximately 2,316 housing units deemed sufficient to provide reliable estimates at the regional level. These sample housing units are selected from the 2013 Master Sample (MS) for household-based surveys of the PSA.
In line with this, the PSA MIMAROPA encourages everyone, especially those selected sample households, to support and actively participate in the conduct of the October 2021 LFS, 2021 SOF and the Awareness Survey on the PCC and the PCA by responding truthfully to the questions to be asked.
