In CAR, PSA aims to register 42K “disadvantaged” persons.

According to the Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA), the government aims to process the birth registration of at least 99.5 percent of Filipinos, including 42,000 additional “disadvantaged” residents in the Cordillera Administrative Region (CAR), in order to meet its commitment to provide documents to all under the Philippine Identification System (PhilSys).

Engr. Marizza Grande, the officer-in-charge assistant national statistician, stated following a news conference here on Tuesday that “we will go to the remotest areas, reach the poorest citizens, and those who have issues in making themselves listed.”

By 2024, PhilSys hopes to have completed the birth registration of all Filipinos and provided them with a legal document.

“We’re killing two birds with one stone,” Grande added, “by increasing PhilSys registration and achieving the country’s goal of registering all citizens.”

According to her, a needs-based evaluation revealed that the project must reach people in marginalized communities or those who live in geographically isolated and disadvantaged areas (GIDA), poor sectors, Muslim Filipinos, and those who have moved away from their birthplace.

Meanwhile, according to information provided by Adrian Cerezo, PSA-Cordillera civil registration officer, approximately 500,000 residents in the region were able to complete the two rounds of PhilSys registration for the national ID in 2021.

There were 114,167 people who completed the registration throughout the month of January this year.

In a second interview, Cerezo stated, “We want to boost registration and complete registering 1.3 million citizens in the Cordillera.”

PSA staff will be able to drum up listings for the national ID in far-flung villages with the addition of 39 registration kits sent to Baguio and Benguet.

President Rodrigo R. Duterte signed Republic Act 11055, or the Philippine Identification System Act, into law in August 2018, with the goal of creating a single national ID for all Filipinos and resident immigrants.

The national ID will be a valid proof of identity that will make public and private transactions, school enrollment, and bank account opening much easier.

It also aims to improve efficiency, particularly when dealing with government organizations, by requiring people to provide only one form of identification during transactions.
