Philippine Statistical System

As one of the first statistical institutions in the country, INSTAT keeps strong ties with the members of the Philippine Statistical System (PSS). The institute upholds the mission and vision of a dynamic and productive statistical system in the Philippines. Events and activities are being hosted and attended by the constituents of the institute.




The Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA) serves as the central statistical authority on primary data collection in the Philippines. It also conducts censuses on different sectors of the Philippine economy such as population, housing, agriculture, fisheries and business. It collects, compiles, analyzes and publishes statistical information on the economic, social, demographic, political affairs and general affairs of the people of the Philippines. Likewise, it enforces the civil registration functions in the Philippines.
