The Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA) will kick-off its 2017 Listing of Farm Households (LFH) today.
A total of 253 sample barangays in Region VIII were selected. These barangays were identified as either palay-producing and/or corn-producing. All households within the selected sample LFH barangays will be enumerated to determine the presence of household member/s who operated a crop farm and/or a livestock/poultry farm for the period of September 2016 to August 2017.
Hired enumerators wearing official ID of PSA will start the listing and enumeration of farm/holding of households and their farm operators and will end on December 1, 2017.
The 2017 LFH is a nationwide activity that aims to update the sampling frame for agriculture-based surveys conducted by the PSA. Specifically, the LFH intends to come up with an updated list of households engaged in agricultural activities as well as to develop the list of agricultural operators.
The PSA appeals to the public, especially agricultural operators, to cooperate and support the conduct of this survey. The Office also assures that all information shall be accorded with utmost confidentiality as provided under RA 10625.
