The Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA)-Abra provides Labor Force Survey training seminar to eight statistical researchers on April 3-5, 2019, at PSA Office, Bangued.

Statistical researchers are being trained to use the Computer-Assisted Personal Interviewing (CAPI) tablet for more efficient data gathering for the Labor Force Survey compared to traditional paper-based surveys.

According to Chief Statistics Specialist Felixberto B. Perdido, Labor Force Survey is a nationwide quarterly survey of households to determine the employment and unemployment rate of the country.

The survey will provide information as basis for the formulation of policies and programs affecting the labor market.
