One Barangay Transferred to Another Municipality
in the Second Quarter of 2013

(NSCB-PR-201309-PP2-01,, Posted 19 September 2013)


Pursuant to the Supreme Court decision dated August 10, 2012, Barangay San Isidro in the municipality of Bangui was transferred to the municipality of Dumalneg, both in the province of Ilocos Norte.

Consequently, the masterlist of barangays in the Philippine Standard Geographic Code (PSGC) was updated to reflect the transfer.

The newly transferred barangay now carries the municipality code of Dumalneg (012810) and  assigned the code 012810002.  Its previous code 012804013 in the municipality of Bangui, Ilocos Norte will be deleted in the PSGC masterlist.

With this update, the latest number of regions, provinces, cities, municipalities, and barangays in the country remains the same as of June 30, 2013:

                                    June 30, 2013                                     March 31, 2013
