The Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA) Regional Office- 9 is set to start their Family Income and Expenditure Survey (FIES) from July 9 to 31 this year.

Ma. Flerida Tan, Supervising Statistical Specialist PSA- 9, said  that there will be 1,560 households each to be surveyed for Zamboanga City, Zamboanga del Norte, Zamboanga del Sur, and Zamboanga Sibugay.

Zamboanga City and each of the three provinces will have 61 enumerators to gather data.

According to Tan, these households were chosen by PSA Manila using statistical methods and only the list of households to be surveyed are being sent to them.

A total of fifty-six (56) barangays will be covered by the survey in Zamboanga City.

The FIES survey is being conducted nationwide every three years. The last FIES survey was conducted in 2015.

Tan is appealing to respondents to support the survey and give accurate information.

This data will be useful for the government for planning and decision making. (RGAAGo)
