NSCB’s Role in the Decentralized System
•
Challenge faced by the PSS in the new millennium:
•
•
8
constantly evolving demands of data users and
stakeholders and dwindling resources
In response, the PSS through NSCB as the highest policy
making and coordinating body:
•
Has been in the forefront in raising awareness and
appreciation of the public on the importance and the
proper use of statistics.

2. Designated Statistics
The System of Designated Statistics (SDS) is a mechanism that:
10
•
Identifies and generates the most critical and essential
statistics/statistical activity required for social and economic
planning/analysis based on approved criteria;
•
Establishes priorities for data production and hence provides a
means for more rational resource allocation among
government statistical activities;
•
Identifies the sources of official statistics;
•
Defines the agency responsible, frequency of data production
and schedule of data dissemination;
•
Indicates the major data items to be collected and the
geographic level of disaggregation, among others.

18. Monitoring the Uses of Statistics
•
Amidst resource constraints, it is important that only statistics that
are useful and are in fact used in decision-making be

•
It is in this area where admirable efforts of the Partnership in
Statistics for Development in the 21st Century (PARIS21)
statistically capacity building of national statistical systems all
over the world can be extended:
• from capacitating the data producers
• to capacitating the data users
•
27

demonstrate their use of statistics to improve the relevance of
the NSCB and the PSS.

• The PSS as an essential part of the ASEAN Community
Statistical System (ACSS) needs to be prepared for and to
actively participate and contribute in the establishment
of a well-functioning and effective ACSS and thus, the
statistical capacities of the PSS should be strengthened in
order to respond to the increased data needs and other
requirements of the ASEAN.

c. Statistical Standards
ASEAN Harmonized Tariff Nomenclature (AHTN)
32
•
NSCB Resolution No.3 Series of 2005: Approving and Adopting
the 2004 Philippine Standard Commodity Classification (PSSC);
•
The Philippine Standard Commodity Classification (PSCC) is a
classification of all commodities on imports and exports being
used for tariff and statistical purposes;
•
The 2004 PSCC, which is the latest PSCC, is an integration of the
ASEAN Harmonized Tariff Nomenclature (AHTN) based on the
2002 Harmonized Commodity Description and Coding System
(HS) issued by the World Customs Organization (WCO) and the
1993 PSCC(as amended in 1999);
ASEAN Regional Workshop on Strategic Statistical Planning
LVCastro / November 28-29,2012/Jakarta, Indonesia
NATIONAL STATISTICAL COORDINATION BOARD
III. How The PSS Integrates ASEAN Statistical Concerns
• As member of the ASEAN, it is imperative that the AHTN be
adopted by the Philippines for comparability of data on
foreign trade;
• The use of the AHTN per se does not include some of the
information contained in the PSCC for statistical purposes, thus
the need to integrate the PSCC and the AHTN;
• The AHTN (8-digits) has been expanded with additional 2digits for the PSCC codes to highlight significant commodities
in the country and generate more detailed information on
these commodities;
• The PSCC is mainly used by the National Statistics Office,
Bureau of Agricultural Statistics, Bureau of Export Trade
Promotions, and the banks and exporters.
