While other Philippine government agencies are producing their own sectoral statistics, the Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA) produces the country's official statistics, covering substantial set of socioeconomic statistics and other measures of economic performance. This Policy Note discusses international and local assessments of the national statistical system based on various frameworks. It found, among others, that PSA has yet to fully achieve the improvements envisioned in the Philippine Statistical Act of 2013, such as increase in its budget and strengthened human resource. It calls on the national government to continue investing in statistics, in statisticians, and in the statistical system to ensure that the official statistics of the country will continue to be viewed well and will fare even much better than its current standing.
