2020 Household Survey

DATA-DRIVEN POLICY-MAKING THROUGH THE COMMUNITY-BASED MONITORING SYSTEM

The current administration stresses the importance of basing its policy decisions on reliable and updated information on the ground, to make appropriate policies and programs that address the specific needs of its constituents. Good policies and programs must stem from the felt needs of the constituents, backed up by data.

A house-to-house distribution of the much awaited Pamaskong Handog was taken as an opportunity to be able to gather baseline data on the number of families within the jurisdiction of Pasig City. This was the first phase of the Community-Based Monitoring System (CBMS) survey. The data generated was the basis for the distribution of relief assistance during a critical period as the country faced the COVID-19 pandemic.

Taking off from the first phase, the City Government is set to roll out the census in the third quarter of 2020, using a tablet-based questionnaire that hopes to capture all aspects of the public concerns.
