28th National Statistics Month
The theme for the 28th National Statistics Month, “Facts and Figures for the Future: Statistics for Evidence-Based Decisions Towards AmBisyon Natin 2040”, reflects the important role of reliable statistics and factual information in determining appropriate strategies in tracking our progress towards AmBisyon Natin 2040 where all Filipinos are envisioned to enjoy a matatag, maginhawa, at panatag na buhay.
To ensure the sustained production and dissemination of statistics which are necessary for the achievement of the Filipino aspirations, statistical activities and programs as identified in the Philippine Statistical Development Program (PSDP) shall be implemented and monitored. These statistics will serve as the evidence needed by policy- and decision-makers in pursuing “bold visions and effective development planning based on forward-looking approach that goes beyond a single administration.”
