History The National Statistics Office (NSO) was first called Bureau of the Census and Statistics (BCS) when Commonwealth Act (C.A.) No. 591 was approved on August 19, 1940. Executive Order No. 314 transferred to the BCS the powers, functions, duties, personnel, appropriations, property and records of other statistical agencies effective January I, 1941. Presidential Decree No. 418 issued on March 20, 1974 reconstituted the BCS into a new agency known as the National Census and Statistics Office (NCSO) under the administrative supervision of the National Economic Development Authority (NEDA).
History In 1987, by virtue of Executive Order No. 121 entitled "Reorganizing and Strengthening the Philippine Statistical System and for Other Purposes," the NCSO as renamed National Statistics Office was placed under the Office of the President. Executive Order No. 149 dated December 28, 1993 was issued by the Office of the President entitled "Streamlining of the Office of the President". By virtue of this order, the NSO was placed again under the administrative supervision of the NEDA for effective policy and program coordination and integration.
History Executive Order No. 5 dated October 23, 1999 was issued by the Office of the President entitled "Strengthening the National Statistics Office" through decentralization of statistics generation activities, transformation of Central Office units into more developmental planning and evaluation units, and increased application of information technology in its operations.
