The Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA) is currently conducting the 2017 Listing of Farm Households (LFH). The 2017 LFH is a nationwide activity that aims to update the sampling frame for agriculture-based surveys conducted by the PSA. Specifically, the LFH intends to come up with an updated list of households engaged in agricultural activities as well as to develop the list of agricultural operators.
A total of 60 sample barangays in the 24 cities/municipalities of the province of Negros Occidental were selected. PSA Negros Occidental Provincial Statistical Office hired 12 teams’ supervisors and 60 enumerators started the listing in September 11, 2017 and will end on December 1, 2017. All households within the selected sample LFH barangays will be enumerated to determine the presence of household member/s that operated a crop farm and/or a livestock/poultry farm for the period of September 2016 to August 2017.
The PSA appeals to the public, especially agricultural operators, to cooperate and support the conduct of this survey.
