DSWD VII jump-starts partners visit to promote utilization of Listahanan 2 data


With the successful finalization of the guidelines for data sharing of Listahanan 2 data, the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) Field Office VII through the National Household Targeting Unit (NHTU) has kicked-off visits to different Local Government Units (LGUs), National Government Agencies (NGAs), Non-Government Organizations (NGOs), Government-Owned and Controlled Corporations (GOCCs), Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) and schools/universities to promote the utilization of the Listahanan poverty database.

This ongoing activity of NHTS-PR aims to encourage all LGUs, NGAs, NGOs, GOCCs, CSOs, schools and universities to take advantage of the Listahanan database and discuss the important guidelines of data sharing for the execution of their respective social protection programs and services.

DSWD VII NHTS-PR Regional Field Coordinator Ruben Boybanting turns over to Sagbayan Bohol Mayor Ricardo Suarez the memorandum from National Privacy Commision and DSWD guidelines in data sharing during the Data Privacy Act of 2012 Orientation.

The partners that were visited included the municipalities of Alicia and Sagbayan Bohol; PLGU Siquijor; Argao, Cebu; Saint Peter Academy of Alegria Foundation, Inc. (SPAAFI) of Alegria, Cebu and the Department of Agriculture (DA-7).

The Listahanan or the National Household Targeting System for Poverty Reduction (NHTS-PR) is an information management system that identifies who and where the poor are nationwide.

To ensure compliance of the Republic Act 10173 or the Data Privacy Act of 2012, DSWD spearheaded the orientation on Data Privacy Act of 2012 and Listahanan data sharing during their visit to the aforementioned LGUs, NGA and school. The orientation aims to educate the potential stakeholders the importance of the firm obedience of Data Privacy Act of 2012 and as well as the adherence of the guidelines for data sharing.

“This is to ensure that the personal information of the assessed households will be protected and will be used exclusively for social protection program and activities,” stated Ruben Boybanting, NHTS-PR Regional Field Coordinator.

A Data Protection Officer (DPO) is designated and tasked to primarily ensure compliance with applicable laws and regulations for the protection and security of data and ensure that all staff are competently trained in regards to the critical protection of the Listahanan data. The PDO will also monitor and notify management and the National Privacy Commission (NPC) about personal data breaches.

Request for data sharing from NGAs, NGOs, GOCCs, CSOs, and private foundations, is to be addressed to the DSWD Central Office while request at the regional level including LGUs, will be addressed to the respective DSWD Regional Offices.

The appointed DPO will be responsible in responding to all requests for information by data subjects including access to personal information and their rectification, updating, removal and destruction.

Documentary requirements to be submitted along with the letter request are the following:  a) original copy authorizing the head of the agency to enter into an agreement for data sharing with DSWD; b) the name of designated Data Protection Officer (DPO) of the agency who will oversee data use, protection, and security of data; c) valid proof of the identification of the agency and the DPO; and, d) documents attesting to the legitimacy of the organization.

“With these documentary requirements, we are grateful to the partners that we have already visited as they initially agreed to maximize the Listahanan poverty database in carrying out their respective social protection programs and services,” expressed Boybanting.

With the utilization of the database, poor households included in the Listahanan will be given the right attention and appropriate services that will be helpful for the augmentation of their socio-economic status, while the LGUs NGOs, NGAs and other civil society organizations are assured that they target the qualified and right groups of people for their social protection programs and services. ###

DSWD-7 conducts On-Demand Application


The Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) Field Office VII has conducted the On-Demand Application (ODA) for the 28,680 households which were not assessed during the second round of household assessment in 2015.

This figure covers region 7 and Negros Oriental.

Of the 28,680 households, 23,568 are from Cebu; 3,594, Bohol; 1,469, Negros Oriental and 49, Siquijor.

“Because targeting errors cannot be totally eliminated, DSWD includes a mechanism for minimizing and correcting targeting errors. These 28,680 households filed complaints in 2015 that claimed they should be included in the list of poor households but were not interviewed during the regular assessment,” underscored Macapobre.

ODA gives households who think they are poor but were not visited during the first enumeration the chance to apply for assessment.

Listahanan applies two enumeration strategy, the saturation or total enumeration in all rural barangays and pockets of poverty approach in urban barangays. These pockets of poverty are areas within a barangay where clusters of poor families reside.

Macapobre said that most of 28,680 households are in the urban-classified barangays.

The DSWD-7 conducted the second assessment in 2015 where 843,275 households were assessed resulting in the initial identification of 385,534 as poor households in region 7 using the Proxy Means Test (PMT).

PMT is a statistical model that estimates the income of household based on the variables included in the households assessment form.

Households with estimated incomes that are equal to and above the latest provincial poverty thresholds are considered non-poor and those with estimated incomes falling below the poverty thresholds are considered poor.

DSWD-7 urges LGUs and NGOs to avail Listahanan statistical data


The Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) Field Office VII urges Local Government Units (LGUs) and Non-Government Organizations (NGOs) to avail the Listahanan database statistical data.

“The Listahanan database is rich in data information like the demographics of the population covered in our household assessment as well as data on their access to safe water and electricity, quality of their housing materials, the tenure status of the family’s house and lot and their specific occupation which is available upon request,” said Regional Director Ma. Evelyn Macapobre.

Currently, the DSWD is in the process of finalizing the Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) for the data sharing in consultation with the National Privacy Commission to ensure that the new MOA will be compliant with RA 10173 or the Data Privacy Act of 2012.

The list of names and addresses of identified poor households can only be obtained upon execution of a data sharing agreement with the DSWD.

This is to protect the integrity of the data and to ensure that the list will be only used for implementation of social protection programs and services meant to improve their well-being.

“Once the MOA will be approved, we will immediately commence the sharing of the list of poor households based on the result of the second round household assessment,” Macapobre said.

While waiting for the new MOA, data users can access the statistical data on various poverty indicators available in the Listahanan database.

Data users can use the statistical data for planning and developing their own social protection policies, programs and services in their own locality.

DSWD-7 calls LGUs to join the 3rd Gawad Listahanan


In its 3rd year, the Department of Social Welfare and Development Field Office VII will again recognize Local Government Units (LGUs) for providing services and assistance to the Listahanan-identified poor families.

“Through the Gawad Listahanan, DSWD recognizes LGUs efforts in providing social welfare and social protection services to the poor to help them achieve improved quality of life,” said Regional Director Ma. Evelyn Macapobre.

“As the lead agency in social welfare, we consider social protection and poverty reduction as a shared responsibility among all social protection stakeholders and that includes national government agencies, local government units and civil society organizations,” Macapobre added.

Qualified LGUs must have a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) with the DSWD on Listahanan data sharing, LGUs should also have locally-funded and implemented social protection program that provides direct service or intervention to the Listahanan-identified poor, such as but not limited to Scholarships, Medical Assistance, and Skills or Livelihood Trainings.

LGUs must be 100% compliant with the annual reportorial requirement of data sharing as stipulated in the agreement.

The competing LGU will choose one (1) locally-funded program that uses Listahanan as basis for beneficiary selection as an official entry to the competition.

The contest has three categories: Municipal Government category, City Government category and Provincial Government category.

DSWD-7 invites municipalities, cities as well as the provinces in Central Visayas region to participate and send their application form.

Application forms can be downloaded from the DSWD-7 regional website – www.fo7.dswd.gov.ph.

Acceptance of application form and write-up for the official entry ends on October 21, 2016.

The awarding ceremony will be conducted during the DSWD’s 66th founding anniversary in January 2017. ###

Over 300,000 households identified as poor in CV thru Listahanan


The Department of Social Welfare and Development Field Office VII (DSWD-7) identifies 385,534 poor households based on the result of the Listahanan second round of assessment.

Partner National Government Agencies, Local Government Units and Non-Government Organizations ink their signature as a statement of commitment during the Launching of the 2015 Listahanan Database of Poor in Central Visayas region.

Partner National Government Agencies, Local Government Units and Non-Government Organizations ink their signatures as a statement of commitment during the Launching of the 2015 Listahanan Database of Poor in Central Visayas region.

The second assessment, which covered 843,275 households in region 7, identified 99,993 households in Bohol; 279,110 households in Cebu and 6,431 households in Siquijor.

“In response to public clamor, we have widen the coverage of our data collection compared to the 1st round of assessment,” said Regional Director Ma. Evelyn Macapobre.

“We are still using the Proxy Means Test model or PMT in treating our data so that we can assure everyone that the identification of the poor, near poor and the non-poor households are done scientifically,” Macapobre shared.

PMT is a statistical model that estimates the income of household based on the variables included in the family assessment form.

Households with estimated incomes that are equal to and above the latest provincial poverty thresholds are considered non-poor and those with estimated incomes falling below the poverty thresholds are considered poor.

Macapobre further explained that to ensure transparency and accuracy in the data-gathering process, the assessment also involved public validation of the initial list of poor generated from the assessment during the validation and finalization phase.

“Aside from the demographics of the population covered in Listahanan, other information such as access to safe water and electricity, quality of housing materials, tenure status of the family’s house and lot and their specific occupation are available upon request,” Dir. Macapobre said.

“We all know that the resources of the country is limited. In order to produce greater impact and minimize wastage of resources we need to do focus targeting and this is where Listahanan comes in,” Dir. Macapobre underscored.

The list of names and addresses of identified poor households can only be obtained upon execution of a data sharing agreement with the DSWD-7.

This is to protect the integrity of the data and to ensure that the list will be only used for implementation of social protection programs and services meant to improve their well-being.

DSWD-7 Sets Launching on Listahanan 2nd round assessment results


The Department of Social Welfare and Development Field Office VII (DSWD-7) sets its launching on the Listahanan second round assessment results on June 27, 2016 at the Cebu Parklane International Hotel, Cebu City.

REACHING OUT

Invited during the said launching are various National Government Agencies (NGAs), District Representatives, Provincial Local Government Units (PLGUs), Local Government Units (LGUs) and partner Non-Government Organizations (NGOs).

Implemented in 2015 the second assessment, which covered a total of 843,275 households in the region, assessed 246,631 households in Bohol; 576,161 households in Cebu and 20,483 households in Siquijor.

“Next week, we will officially present the number of identified poor households in the region out of the 843,275 assessed households,” said Regional Director Ma. Evelyn Macapobre.

The DSWD enumerated all households in rural-classified barangays and pockets of poverty in urban-classified barangays.

“The household was assessed based on their composition, the household members’ highest educational attainment and occupation, features of the housing structure and access to basic services or facilities like water, electricity, and sanitary toilet, households’ ownership of assets, tenure status of housing among others,” Director Macapobre shared.

She added that all collected information from the household went through a process using a scientific method called Proxy Means Test or PMT.

PMT is a statistical model that estimates the income of household based on the variables included in the family assessment form.

Households with estimated incomes that are equal to and above the latest provincial poverty thresholds are considered non-poor and those with estimated incomes falling below the poverty thresholds are considered poor.

While the Listahanan can generate statistics on the targeted poor households and families, it does not provide the official poverty statistics.

The official poverty statistics is released by PSA, which provides data on poverty and subsistence incidences based on poverty and food thresholds.

Cebu City uses Listahanan to serve PWDs


The Cebu City Government uses the Listahanan database of the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) in serving the Persons with Disabilities (PWDs).

PWDs claim their financial assistance from the Cebu City Government.

PWDs claim their financial assistance from the Cebu City Government.

The Cebu City Government through its Department of Social Welfare Services (DSWS) is currently serving 10,168 PWDs who receives financial assistance in the amount of Php 5,000.00 each per year.

Out of the 10,168 individuals, there are 476 individuals identified poor in the Listahanan database based on the name matching conducted by the DSWD Field Office VII.

“As a local government unit, we opted to use the Listahanan because it is important that different government agencies will be given a list of poor households that need their specific area of responsibility expertise”, said Dr. Ester G. Concha, DSWS OIC-Department Head.

“Priorities will be focused on, plan of action will be formulated, budget will be assessed accordingly and implementation of giving out specific needs will be done in a timely and orderly manner”, added Dr. Concha.

Aside from the given financial assistance, DSWS also provided other services like issuance of PWD ID card and PWD booklet, provision of assistive devices such as wheelchairs, canes and hearing aids and social enhancement such as personality development sessions.

Listahanan, formerly called the National Household Targeting System for Poverty Reduction (NHTS-PR), is an information management system that identifies who and where the poor households are in the country.

It aims for the government and civil society to establish objective targeting system on the social protection programs and services to the poor. ###

DSWD-7 clarifies on Listahanan’s Sticker


The Department of Social Welfare and Development in Central Visayas clarifies that the Listahanan sticker doesn’t have monetary value.

“We received reports particularly here in Cebu that people expected to be given cash worth Php 40,000.00 up to Php 70,000.00 once they have the Listahanan sticker. We would like to inform the public that the sticker is a proof that a household is already assessed by DSWD. That is the only purpose of the sticker,” said Regional Director Mercedita Jabagat.

During the second quarter this year, DSWD-7 conducted the Listahanan second household assessment.

DSWD-7 deployed enumerators in the field to gather socio-economic information in order to objectively identify who and where the poor are.

After the household is assessed, the enumerator will then post the proof of assessment sticker.

“We would like to ask the public not to immediately believe to this kind of stories and to stop creating stories which could cause confusion among community residents,” added Director Jabagat.

“Even if the household was already assessed, it does not mean that it will automatically become a beneficiary of any government program,” Director Jabagat emphasized.

“All collected information from the household will go through a process using a scientific method called Proxy Means Test or PMT,” Director Jabagat added.

PMT is a statistical model that estimates the income of household based on the variables included in the family assessment form.

“We use the PMT because we want to identify the poor in the most objective, systematic and transparent manner,” Director Jabagat underscored.

Households with estimated incomes that are equal to and above the latest provincial poverty thresholds will be considered non-poor and those with estimated incomes falling below the poverty thresholds will be considered poor.

“Once the household is identified as poor, they will become potential beneficiaries for various social protection programs of the government like the Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program. However, their inclusion in the programs still depends on the programs qualifications or criteria,” Jabagat added.

Aside from being identified as poor from Listahanan, a Pantawid partner beneficiary must have children aged 0-18 or have a pregnant member at the time of the assessment and must be willing and able to comply with the conditionalities of the program as part of their co-responsibilities. ###
