Dear Ms. Beverly Panopio:

You requested for the following information: “Statistics of Abused Children in the Region IV-A CALABARZON (including age, gender and year) from 2017 – 2019.”

Unfortunately, the DSWD only has information on abused children 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 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 data you need regarding statistics on abused children. 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

Further, for crimes such as abuse of children, the Philippine National Police (PNP) may also have the data you need. Hence, you may also wish to direct your request to the PNP by submitting a request via this eFOI portal. Alternatively, you may try to contact the PNP by telephone at 723-0401.

Very truly yours,

Atty. Maria Cassandra M. Urbiztondo
