This theme could be translated into other major Philippine dialects or maybe crafted into regional sub-theme depending on the focus and direction of the statistical activities.

The Celebration aims to:

  • elicit the cooperation and support of the general public in upgrading the quality and standards of statistics in the country.
The suggested NSM activities to be undertaken include symposia, workshops, orientation seminars, exhibits, lectures, film showing, statistical quiz, publication of statistical reports, indicators, other relevant information, among others, which are focused on the theme or the region's selected sub-theme, if any.

In this connection, DepEd Regions I, V, VI, VIII, IX, X, XI, XII and Cordillera Administrative Region (CAR) will coordinate with the Regional Statistical Coordination Committees (RSCCs) through the National Statistical Coordination Board-Regional Units (NSCB-RUs) regarding their proposed NSM activities in their respective regions.

The DepEd National Capital region (NCR) can forward its proposed NSM activities to the NSM Secretariat at NSCB, 2nd Floor, Midland, Buendia Bldg., 403, Sen. Gil Puyat Avenue, Makati City.
