PSA explains importance of civil
Registration and vital statistics
TAGBILARAN CITY, February 9, (PIA)—Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA) explains the crucial role of civil registration (CR) as a way determining the nations vital statistics (VS), at the recent Kapihan sa PIA.
Speaking at the radio-forum on the air, no less than PSA Officer in Charge Regional Director Ronaldo Taghap who stressed the importance of civil registration and censuses in the life of a developing and even developed countries.
“Civil registration (CR) is a system of recording births, change of status and other modifications, and deaths to gather information and data for the government to base its policies and decisions,” Taghap summarized.
“After the CR, we can have the nation’s vital statistics,” its by-product, he added.
And as if to illustrate his point, Taghap took the recording of a death as an example.
“When somebody dies, we collect data for the reason of death, age of the deceased, and other details that can help us in the future,” he said.
If a person dies of cardio pulmonary disease and it is prevalent in a certain location, the data gathered as vital statistics can guide the Department of Health or the Department of environment and natural resources in determining interventions.
From the vital statistics, maybe the government through the DOH can mitigate the disease through a special health program focused on the specific locality, or for the DENR to maybe determine the cause of pollution causing pulmonary problems.
At the same radio forum, Bohol PSA chief statistician Jessamyn Anne Alcazaren revealed that in Bohol, it is more of the death and the marriages that are not always registered right away.
The PSA networks with Local Civil Registrars, who submit the CR data every month, and it happens not later than the 10th day of the succeeding month, Alcazaren added.
Beyond that, those who had status changes or kinds of those who died will have to late register their moments and pay a penalty for late registration, according to the PSA.
On this, citing the theme for 2016’s commemoration of the Civil Registry Month, PSA urges everyone to unite and “Maki-isa at Makisali sa Dekadang CRVS.”
The PSA came to the Kapihan to announce the Civil Registration Month in February. (rac/PIA-7/Bohol)
