The Philippine ICT Statistics Portal

The Philippine Information and Communications Technology Statistics (PHICTS) Portal is a web-based system that consolidates ICT-related statistics in the country. With just a click of the mouse, anyone from the government, private sector, and the general public can now access government-approved statistics. The portal also promotes proper management of statistical data that can be used for policy research, plans and projects development and implementation, and analysis of the ICT sector.

The PHICTS Portal was created by the Information and Communications Technology Office (ICTO) under the Department of Science and Technology (DOST) with the help of the International Telecommunication Union (ITU).
