The data for this special release were collected by the Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA) through the two (2) major surveys, namely:

 1) The Backyard Livestock and Poultry Survey (BLPS) which covers one (1) of the four replicate samples of the Palay and Corn Production Survey (PCPS); and
 2) The Commercial Livestock and Poultry Survey (CLPS). A livestock farm is considered commercial when its operation satisfies at least one of the following conditions: a) at least 21 heads of         adults and zero young, b) at least 41 heads of young animals or c) at least 10 heads of adults and 22 heads of young animals. A poultry farm is considered commercial when its operation satisfies at     least one of the following conditions: a) at least 500 layers, b) at least 1,000 broilers or c) 100 layers and 100 broilers, if raised in combination. A duck farm is considered commercial if it has a raising capacity of at least 100 birds of duck regardless of age.

Data collection for swine and chicken is done quarterly while data collection for goat, cattle, carabao, and duck is done semi-annually. BLPS is conducted during the first seven (7) days of the first month after the reference quarter while CLPS is conducted during the last eight (8) days of the last month of the reference quarter or semester.
