There are 159,795 households assessed in the region, from the target of 864,736 households for assessment.

Meanwhile, the NHTS is currently doing the barcoding of Household Assessment Forms (HAFS) and as of today, there are 67,339 HAFs recorded in the system for encoding. Moreover, encoders and verifiers have already started and the recent status of encoded HAFs is 27, 413 and the total verified HAFs is 23, 929. The encoding station is presently managed by the Regional Information Technology Officer of Listahanan. Due to the limited IT equipment of NHTS such as laptops, the other newly-hired encoders and verifiers are encouraged to bring their laptops in able to perform the task.

Furthermore, the release of official wearables such as Listahanan Vest, Teeshirt with logos, delivery, and retrieval of Forms from the areas are also ongoing.

The Data collection phase of Listahanan Third Round of Household Assessment is expected to be accomplished by the month of March 2020.
