The Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA) announces the release of the 2016 Philippines in Figures (PIF) in PDF form.
The PIF is a handy pocket-size booklet which contains more than two hundred indicators of the country’s socio-economic activity. The data presented in this booklet are based on the current three year series which were gathered and researched from the different government agencies concerned and from PSA as well. Topics often asked by the general public and students, such as population and demographic characteristics; labor and employment; education and literacy; health and welfare; trade and tourism; and developments in other 15 sectors including agriculture, fishery forestry, transportation, communications, banking and finance, energy and water and industries like manufacturing, mining, and quarrying are being published. A short historical background of the country, its government and its latest geographic composition are also incorporated in this issue.
For interested parties, the soft copy may be obtained from Knowledge Management and Communications Division (KMCD), 5th Floor PSA-CVEA Building, PSA Complex, East Avenue, Diliman, Quezon City with telephone number 4626600 locals 833 and 839, or the hard copy may be secured at our Publication Sales Unit (PSU) located at the Ground Floor PSA-CVEA Building, PSA Complex, East Avenue, Diliman, Quezon City with telephone number 4626600 local 839.
