DSWD MIMAROPA OIC-Regional Director Floreceli G. Gunio inspires Listahanan field workers in Occidental Mindoro to secure a credible and accurate data.

MALATE, Manila– The Department of Social Welfare and (DSWD) MIMAROPA has completed training of Area Coordinators and Supervisors for the upcoming nationwide Listahanan 3rd Round Household Assessment. They will be assigned in Occidental and Oriental Mindoro, Marinduque, Romblon and Palawan provinces.

The four-day training for Coordinators was conducted on September 2-6 in Metro Manila while the four cluster trainings for Supervisors were simultaneously conducted on September 16-20, 2019 in Palawan, Occidental and Oriental Mindoro.

Listahanan is a government mechanism to identify who and where the poor are. It is mandated to update the database of poor households every four years. The first assessment was conducted in 2009 and the second assessment was in 2015.

“The 2019 household assessment targets 622,230 households regionwide. There are 186,625 target households in Oriental Mindoro; 95,120 in Occidental Mindoro; 50,611 in Marinduque; 65,436 in Romblon and 224,438 households in Palawan, said Listahanan Regional Coordinator Ernie Jarabejo.

However the households target per province may increase or decrease depending on the actual number of households assessed.

The training aims to equip Listahanan workers with new concepts, strategies and supervision skills for the actual field deployment, said Jarabejo.

On the other hand, the household assessment is expected to kick off this October and will last until December with a regional budget of P78.2 million for the data collection phase.

In MIMAROPA, 32 Area Coordinators, 165 Area Supervisors and 829 Enumerators were hired to administer house-to-house interviews in 1,460 barangays regionwide. ###
