Dear Ms. Allyssa Mendoza,

Greetings!

Thank you for your request dated 28 November 2019 under Executive Order No. 2 (s. 2016) on Freedom of Information in the Executive Branch.

Your request

You requested for information on the following: (1) Number of Abandoned Elderly Per Province of Region 3; (2) Number of Abandoned Elderly in Mabalacat, Pampanga; (3) Demographics of Elderly in Mabalacat, Pampanga

Response to your request

The DSWD only has limited information on numbers (1) and (2), specifically to those abandoned elderly residing in its centers and institutions.

Thus, we shall partially grant your request and we shall refer your request with respect to this matter to the proper DSWD office.

Under Republic Act 10625 (the “Philippine Statistical Act of 2013”), the Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA) is the government agency responsible for preparing and conducting periodic censuses on population, housing, agriculture, fisheries, business, industry and other sectors of the economy. The PSA may have the complete data you need. Hence, you may wish to direct your request to the PSA by submitting a request to the PSA via this portal. You may also contact the PSA by telephone at 462-6600 locals 839, 833 and 834 or via email at info@psa.gov.ph. 

Further, since you are asking data specific to Region 3 and Mabalacat, Pampanga, the Local Government Unit (LGU) in those places might also have the data you are looking for. Hence, you may also wish to direct your request to the LGU.

Respectfully,

Atty. Maria Cassandra M. Urbiztondo
FOI Decision Maker
