COTABATO CITY: The Philippine Statistics Authority in the Bangsamoro Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (PSA-BARMM) will conduct the 2020 Census of Population and Housing (CPH) in the region in September.

This was announced by PSA-BARMM Director Razulden Mangelen during a virtual press briefing held Friday.

“I encourage everyone to give time to answer their (enumerators’) queries,” Mangelen said.

Due to the pandemic, the enumerators will be equipped with personal protective equipment and will strictly follow the minimum health standards while conducting the house-to-house survey.

BARMM Chief Minister Ahod “Murad” Ebrahim has urged constituents to cooperate and support the 2020 CPH by answering accurate information that is vital in the development of policies and programs for the region.

“This will let us see the accurate picture of the populace in the region and would help us identify the needs we need to address”, Ebrahim said.

The PSA-BARMM has assigned some 5,000 enumerators to conduct the regional census.
