Region 10 NSOs Conducts Family Health Survey for 2011

Women Force: Only women from Region 10 Provinces are hired for the facilitation of enumeration of the 2011 FHS. Dr. Salvador A. Aves (standing before delivering a message).

Provincial offices of the National Statistics Office in Region 10 joined the weeklong 2nd level training for the 2011 Family Health Survey at the Chali Beach Resort in Cagayan de Oro on July 24 to 30, 2011. The Provinces of Bukidnon, Camiguin, Lanao Norte, Misamis Occidental and Misamis Oriental hired only women for the field work of FHS.

The 2011 Family Health Survey (FHS) is a nationwide survey designed to provide information on maternal and child health, family planning and other health-related concerns in order to assist policymakers and program managers in  evaluating and designing strategies for improving health and family planning services in the country. The 2011 FHS will update findings from the series of Family Planning Surveys conducted from 1995 to 2006, and various rounds of the National Demographic and Health Survey.

The FHS is a stand-alone survey and will involve interviewing all women who are 15 to 49 years of age in the sample households. These women will be asked questions about some of their background characteristics, the children they have given birth to, use of family planning methods, the health of their children, their reproductive health and other information which will be helpful to policy makers and administrators in the field of health and family planning.

Authority for the 2011 FHS, Section 2 of Commonwealth Act No. 591, approved on August 19, 1940, authorized the Bureau of the Census and Statistics (now NSO) to collect by enumeration, sampling or other methods, statistics and other information concerning population and to conduct, for statistical purposes, investigations and studies of social and economic conditions in the country, among others.

With this regard NSO 10 Regional Director Dr. Salvador A. Aves wholeheartedly request all respondent households in Region 10 for cooperation and support for the enumerators of 2011 Family Health Survey. Enumeration period is from August 1 to 26, 2011.
