PSA to revitalize its mobile registration in Benguet villages
by Primo Agatep / PNA

LA TRINIDAD, Benguet – The Philippine Statistics Authority-Benguet will revitalize its efforts by going straight to the barangays to record births and marriages in the 13 towns.

Imelda Buyuccan, chief statistical specialist of Benguet, said the effort is part of this year’s Civil Registration Month (CRM), which highlights the importance of having an up-to-date and accurate civil registration and vital statistics.

The Benguet statistical office also has jurisdiction over Baguio City.

Buyuccan said registration of vital statistics like birth, marriage, is vital in the formulation and implementation of government programs that are aimed at improving the lives of the people in the province, Baguio, and the Filipinos in general.

She said mobile registration teams from the different local civil registrar’s offices in Bengutet and Baguio will go the communities to conduct the activity.

“Teams from the local municipal registrar’s office will be going out to the communities to register those who are unregistered,” said Buyuccan, adding that the activity is done in cooperation with barangay officials.

She said that a big number of the indigenous peoples in the province are not registered.

Buyuccan described it as “a great concern,” thus, the need to boost government’s efforts to have them listed, so they could get the benefits of being registered Filipinos.

In observance of the CRM, the PSA-Benguet has also lined up activities this month, like giving training to those officiating marriage rites, so they could get official certifications and make the ceremonies they conduct legitimate.

There will also be information dissemination activities, such symposia for government agencies, schools, and barangays.

Part of its information campaign program is a poster and slogan contest to promote the importance of civil registration and vital statistics.

There will also be trainings and lectures for the city and Benguet civil registrars on civil registration and how to fill up the revised civil registry forms, including public and private hospital records.
