On-line Statistical Service Through the Internet
The NSCB went online by establishing its web site in the World Wide Web in May 1997. The site contains historical time series and the latest updates on major social and economic indicators.
It also features news on the latest statistical development activities in the country. Users can order and subscribe to statistical publications in the National Statistical Information Center (NSIC) and request data through this online facility.
On December 9, 1998, the NSCB was honored during the first Philippine Webby Awards as the 1998 best Filipino created web site for government category. The Philippine Webby Award is an award giving body that honors the best Filipino created web sites for the year and the individuals and teams responsible for the creation of the web sites.
In 1999, the NSCB web site was again awarded by the Philippine Webby Awards as the best web site in the government category. In the same year, the 8th Gawad Oscar Florendo also honored the NSCB web site as the 1999 Outstanding Information Tool in the Special Awards Category in a ceremony held on November 12, 1999 at the AFPCOC, Tejeros Hall, at Camp Aguinaldo.
