The Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA) issued on 25 October 2019 a clearance to conduct the 2020 National Youth Assessment Study (NYAS) of the National Youth Commission (NYC).
The 2020 NYAS is conducted to provide a quantitative framework that will serve as the basis in the formulation of policies and in the setting or priorities and direction of all youth promotion and development program and activities. Specifically, it aims to:
- identify priority needs of the youth;
- determine attitudes and values of the youth;
- determine levels of youth participation in health, education, economic empowerment, social inclusion and equity, peace-building and security, governance, active citizenship, environment, and global mobility;
- identify and assess existing services delivered by government and non-government institutions on youth development; and
- measure the variables to estimate the Youth Development Index (YDI).
Data items to be collected from the survey include socio-demographic characteristics, information about health, education, economic empowerment, social inclusion and equity, peace-building and security, governance, citizenship, environment, global mobility, mass media and internet, and influences and values of youth.
The survey will interview about 2,668 individuals and will utilize a total budget of PhP 11.8 million.
The PSA reviewed and issued clearance to conduct the 2020 NYAS under the Statistical Survey Review and Clearance System (SSRCS), a mechanism being implemented by the PSA by virtue of Rule 28 of Implementing Rules and Regulations (IRR) of Republic Act (RA) No. 10625 to:
- ensure sound design for data collection;
- minimize the burden placed upon respondents;
- effect economy in statistical data collection;
- eliminate unnecessary duplication of statistical data collection efforts; and
- achieve better coordination of government statistical activities.
In line with this, the public is enjoined to support the said statistical activity.
