The Municipal Level Training on the 2022 Community-Based Monitoring System (CBMS) Rollout was successfully conducted in the Municipality on July 25 to August 1. This eight-day training was participated by 21 enumerators from the different barangays of Burgos. The Municipal Planning and Development Coordinator, the Statistician and the Head CBMS Area Supervisor, who participated in the Provincial Level Training, served as the lecturers and trainers during the activity.

        The training aimed to equip the participants with understanding of the CBMS concepts and forms, as well as to familiarize them with the enumeration sections and questions included in the Household Profile Questionnaire, which is the main tool to be utilized in gathering the necessary information from the households.

     The participants joined the flag raising ceremony of the Local Government Unit on the first day of the training. The program commenced in the Conference Hall with the Municipal Mayor, Hon. Delfin C. Comedis giving his opening remarks followed by the department heads delivering their respective messages and sharing some of their experiences in census.

     One highlight of the opening program was the Question-and-Answer Portion where the enumerators were asked several questions about their understanding and expectations on the eight-day training they were expected to complete.

      Highlighting the fifth day of the training was the courtesy call with the barangay captains. The chieftains expressed their support to the CBMS and to the enumerators who will be assigned to their respective barangays.

     Actual simulation of the Household Profile Questionnaire as well as the possible scenarios that could be encountered during the enumeration were performed and addressed during the last three days of the training.

Data gathered from this full-scale enumeration will enable the generation of more locally disaggregated statistics essential for targeting the poor and vulnerable in the country as well as for the utilization of the local government units for policy making and program implementation.

     The enumeration period will officially begin on August 8 and is expected to be concluded on October 5.
