PSA Camarines Sur bags three awards
The Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA) Camarines Sur bagged three awards during the 2020 PSA Awards held virtually recently.
It was hailed as the overall 7th Top Performing Province, 3rd Best Province in Information Dissemination, and 5th Best Province in Partnership and Linkages, out of the 86 Provincial Statistics Offices (PSOs) in the country.
These hard-earned recognitions were gained despite PSA Camarines Sur being the 11th most populous province in the country and carrying up to 40 percent of Bicol region’s Statistical, Civil Registration, and National ID workload.
In 2020, the province published 119 Special Releases for the Information Dissemination Category with topics on Women and Men, Construction Statistics, Consumer Price Index, Fisheries Production, Retail Price of Livestock and Poultry, Registered Vital Events, Palay and Corn Stationer, Population Results and many more.
It also produced quarterly newsletters, responded to various data requests, prepared 29 infographics, and broadcasted 41 episodes of “PSA Serbilis sa Radyo” through Radio Caritas Mariae, DWRV 98.3 FM.
Following its achievement as the Best in Partnership and Linkages Category in the 2019 PSA Awards, PSA Camarines Sur continued to collaborate with different organizations before the pandemic. Some of which includes mangrove planting of 2,000 propagules in Sibobo, Calabanga, Lunch Date with Lola at Villa Marilac Home for the Aged, participation in the Kapamilya Love Weekend, and the Fun Run for Radio Caritas Mariae, among many others.
The PSA Awards is an incentive system aimed to ensure timely delivery of quality outputs in the implementation of PSA’s mandated activities. Information Dissemination covers the dissemination of statistical as well as civil registration activities of the PSA field offices through the print, broadcast and electronic media, while the Partnership and Linkages category involves coordination and cooperation with public and private organizations in conducting and/or participating in activities geared towards upholding the mission of the Office.
