ANDROID TABLETS FOR UPDATING THE LIST OF ESTABLISHMENTS IN CAMARINES SUR
The 2018 Updating of the List of Establishment (2018 ULE) operations will use tablets as substitute for the usual pen-and-paper will be conducted in Camarines Sur starting April 16, 2018, in preparation for the 2018 Census of Philippine Business and Industry (CPBI) to be conducted in 2019.
The 2018 ULE aims to provide an updated and reliable sampling frame for the establishment and enterprise-based censuses and surveys, such as the 2019 CPBI. The data that will be collected also serve as a guide to government planning, policy making and monitoring; basis of marketing plans, opportunities and prospects; and input to evaluation, market research and comparative studies. Door- to-door canvassing and inquiry from establishments will be done to update the status and basic characteristics of the establishments listed in the Statistical Business Register (SBR) and to add information for new establishments or those which are not yet listed in the SBR.
