Some 15 barangays in Aklan are taken as samples for the 2nd quarter of Labor Force Survey conducted by Philippine Statistics Authority-Aklan.
The Labor Force Survey (LFS) is a nationwide quarterly survey of households, which aims to gather data on the demographic and socio-economic characteristics of the population for the formulation of plans and policies affecting the labor market.
These 15 barangays are: Brgy. Paningayan, Madalag; Brgy. Dingle, Banga; Brgy Tigayon, Kalibo; Brgy. Poblacion, Altavas; Brgy. Morales, Balete; Brgy. Bay ang, Mambuquiao, Magpag-ong and Mandong, Batan; Brgy Badio and Albasan, Numancia; Brgy Afga, Tangalan; Brgy Nagustan and Magallanes, Nabas; and Brgy. Fatima, New Washington.
According to Mrs. Rodelyn R. Panadero, Statistician II/OIC of PSA-Aklan, about 243 households are taken as samples for this survey.
LFS covers employment characteristics of the population based on a “past week” reference period.
“The data generated from LFS provide the basis for the creation and generation of gainful employment and livelihood opportunities, reduction of unemployment and underemployment, and enhancement of the welfare of the working person,” Panadero pointed out.
She appeals to all respondents to support and cooperate in this data gathering. She assured them that all information furnished to PSA will be held “strictly confidential” and cannot be used for taxation, investigation or law enforcement purposes. /MP
