Philippines to conduct four-month CAF

Philippines to conduct four-month CAF

The Philippine government will conduct a four-month census on agriculture and fisheries (CAF) in 42,000 villages across the country, the National Statistics Office (NSO) said Wednesday.
"The collected data will serve as bases for policy formulation and implementation toward national development," NSO said.
Census enumerators will visit the households starting this month until April this year, and agricultural enterprises from April to May to gather information on agriculture such as tenurial status, land utilization, irrigation facility, crops planted and livestock and poultry raised.
Meanwhile, the enumerators will go to aquafarms to ask about the type, location, and size of aquafarm and the species cultured.
The current CAF is the sixth of a series of decennial census on agriculture and the fifth on fisheries. The previous census of agriculture and fisheries was done in 2002.
