Regional Statistical Development Program (RSDP)


The CAR Regional Statistical Development Program (RSDP) is the regional/local counterpart of the Philippine Statistical Development Program (PSDP) which sets the directions, thrusts and priorities of the Philippine Statistical System for the generation and dissemination of statistical information used in policy and decision-making at the local level.

The RSDP serves as the roadmap for the integration and coordination of statistical activities in the region. It is an instrument for identifying needed interventions and improvements in the statistical system and basis for programming and resource allocation. The RSDP is a support document of the Regional Development Plan (RDP) as it supplements the statistical data and information needed in the implementation, monitoring and evaluation of programs, the core regional indicators, and the region’s commitment to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG). Thus, this document can serve as basis for the local executives and regional officials in addressing statistical development concerns by programming and allocating resources for statistical programs and activities in the regular work plans of regional line agencies and local government units.

Finally, with the emerging concerns such as climate change, disasters and emergencies, threats to peace and order, security, and poverty, the RSDP aims to provide reliable statistics that aide in charting and tracking the progress of the region in addressing these challenges. These challenges are critical and require sound statistical framework to be able to realize the vision of a “responsive, effective and efficient regional statistical system that delivers quality statistics, products and services for evidence-based decision and policy-making towards inclusive and sustainable growth of the Cordillera.”
