The Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA) established through Republic Act No. 10625 or The Philippine Statistical Act of 2013, is tasked, among others, to compile and maintain macroeconomic accounts and indicators, at the national and subnational level. At the provincial level, the Provincial Product Accounts (PPA) is a mechanism to measure the economic performance of the province or highly urbanized cities (HUCs) at a given time.
Starting in 2021, the PSA annually releases the provincial level economic performances following the identified pilot provinces and HUCS. Province of Rizal is one of the pilot areas for PPA compilation starting 2022.
