Buyuccan said the preparation for the census started last year.
After the conduct of the census, there would be manual processing of data such as review of the correctness and consistency of entries in the questionnaire. Then it would be machine processed, that is encoding and machine tabulation of data.
“And then we will have the publication or info dissemination and now we give it to the public for use in March 2021. It would be the President who would be proclaiming the result of the census prior to its dissemination,” Buyuccan said.
She encouraged the public to support the conduct of the census that would assist the government in planning purposes and as a basis for the computation of the internal revenue allotment of local government units. – Ofelia C. Empian
