Regional Statistical Development Program
Republic Act No. 10625 'An Act Reorganizing the Philippine Statistical System (PSS) and Creating the Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA)' provides for the preparation of the Philippine Statistical Development Program (PSDP).
The PSDP is a mechanism for setting directions, thrusts, and strategies in the PSS and for defining the priority statistical development programs and activities undertaken in the medium-term.
The PSDP 2018-2023 guides the statistical development of the PSS and furnishes the Philippine Development Plan (PDP) 2017-2022 with vital statistical information necessary in measuring the country's progress and formulating policies, taking into account the priority strategies, targets, and activities in the medium-term.
At the regional level, the Regional Statistics Committees (RSCs) shall provide guidance and directions in the formulation of the Regional Statistical Development Program (RSDP) covering the period 2018-2023.
Similar to its national counterpart, the R$DP shall lay the necessary framework for generating and disseminating statistics and indicators needed in policy formulation, development planning, and decision making by Various stakeholders and data users in the region.
The involvement of various stakeholders such as the statistical agencies and national government agencies in the region, local government units (LGUs), private sector, and other data producers and users IS fundamental in the formulation of solid, comprehensive, responsive, and attainable statistical programs for the medium-term.
The main considerations in the formulation or the RSDP are the data requirements of the Northern Mindanao Regional Development Plan (RDP) 2017-2022, including its Results Matrices, various sectoral plans, and emerging data needs such as the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
The RDSPs form part of the Local statistics Development Chapter of the PSDP 2018-2023.
