Hello!

Can we please have a copy of the full results of the DOST-FNRI RNAS released on April 27, 2021? We already have a copy of the powerpoint presentation (http://enutrition.fnri.dost.gov.ph/site/uploads/RNAS%20Virtual%20Dissemination%20to%20Partners.pdf) and we've become interested in the survey's detailed results?

If there were RNAS in previous years e would also like to ask for copies of these. 

Thank you!

Hello! Thanks for the reply. 

The RNAS is an excellent and timely survey.

By "detailed results" we mean complete monthly figures of "food insecurity experiences by month" (i.e. also for June-November), relative accessibility of other health service facilities, other available job opportunities per risk area category, sources of food assistance, amount of cash assistance (if available), more complete breakdowns of results by island group (i.e. Luzon, Visayas, Mindanao), and perhaps any other insightful details that were not put in the powerpoint presentation posted. 

We are also requesting copies of all previous RNAS results/reports (we note that there was at least another one in 2019).

Thank you!
