Pursuant to Presidential Proclamation No. 647, "Declaring the Month of October of Every Year as the National Statistics Month (NSM),” the NSM is annually observed nationwide. The NSM aims to: (a) promote, enhance, and instill awareness and appreciation of the importance and value of statistics to the different sectors of the society; and (b) elicit the cooperation and support of the general public in upgrading the quality and standards of statistics in the country.
 
In October 2018, the 29th NSM will carry the theme “Exploring Philippine Wonders in Numbers: Statistics Towards Sustainable Tourism Development.” This reflects the relevance of statistics in achieving a sustainable and progressive tourism growth for our country and emphasizes the need for statistics to identify potential tourism havens and also areas which require intervention.
