Core Regional Indicators (Core-Is) - The Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA) Board has approved for adoption the Core Regional Indicators (CoRe-Is) through Resolution No. 10, series of 2017.
The CoRe-Is is a set of indicators that aims to:

a) monitor the social, economic, political, cultural and environmental developments at the regional level;
b) aid the government in understanding the needs of local communities; and
c) enable both the national and local governments make right policies, decisions and actions for development planning and policy formulation.

The Core-Is are composed of region-specific indicators that provide a readily available set of statistics useful to monitor progress and track the pace of development.
