DSWD urges Bicolanos to participate in Listahanan validation

LEGAZPI CITY, Nov 3 (PIA) -- The Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) in Bicol has urged the public to participate in the validation of the initial list of poor to be included in the Listahanan or the National Household Targeting System for Poverty Reduction (NHTS-PR).

“This is the right venue for the public to have their appeals and or complaints before we finalize the list,” said DSWD Bicol director Arnel Garcia.

DSWD has started posting the initial list of poor in barangays over the region to be checked and scrutinized by the community.

Garcia said validation provides opportunity to review the preliminary list of poor wherein wrong entries such as spelling of names, birthday, address and other information can be corrected and to include those households not visited during the regular enumeration.

The department encourages the public to follow these simple steps in the Listahanan validation process.

First, carefully review the preliminary list of poor posted by the DSWD in barangays.

Next, come to the area supervisor if there are questions or complaints to the list.

Finally, to file a complaint do not forget to write complete information on the complaint form.

DSWD Bicol has earlier announced that they were able to assess 1,056,722 households of which 1,006,991 has subjected to the Proxy Means Test (PMT) which resulted to the identification of 410, 186 initial poor households.

The Proxy Means Test (PMT) is a statistical model that estimates the income of households using the proxy variables indicated in the Family Assessment Form.

The Listahanan formerly known as National Household Targeting System for Poverty Reduction (NHTS-PR) is an information management system that aims to establish a database of poor households that will become beneficiaries of social protection programs.(MAL/SAA/DSWD5/PIA5/Albay)
