The former's role help users in understanding the framework of the Philippine Statistical System and the Philippine Statistics Authority, as the central authority of the Philippine government on statistical matters; while, the latter's role is to assist users in the correct interpretation of data.
The General Information Metadata can be accessed through the right side menu. The Specific metadata can be browsed through the following subject-areas:
1. Demographic and Social Statistics
3. Environment and Multi-domain Statistics
