Calanasan shares the largest land area in the province with a total land area of 1,692.27 square kilometers or a percentage share of 33.10% of the total land area. Meanwhile, the Municipality of Sta. Marcela is the smallest municipality in terms of land area with only 196.10 square kilometers or a percentage share of 3.84% of the total land area.

The province of Apayao produced 11,815 metric tons (MT) of crops during the first semester of 2018. Crop production of the province increased by 8.7% or 944MT compared to the 10,871 MT produced in first semester of 2017.

Apayao is the top producer of cassava with 6.1 of the regional cassava production; second top producer of squash fruit 22.2% and third top producer of banana with 9.10%.

According to the data released by PSA in 2019, Apayao ranked 5th among the six provinces in CAR with a contribution of 7.8% or 323.7 MT out of the 4,157.6 MT fishery production in the region. Of this production, 234.9 MT came from inland fisheries while 88.9MT were harvested from 62.1 hectares of aqua farm areas in the province (PSA, 2019).

Major aquaculture commodities include tilapia, carp and catfish. Fisherfolk in the province also cultures freshwater prawn whenever there are available seed stocks from Region 1. For inland capture fisheries, fishermen usually conducts fishing activities in rivers and lakes.

The recent poverty trends released by the Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA) in 2018, the province of Apayao recorded a decrease in its poverty rate (poverty incidence among families) from 38.1% in 2015 to 16 %.

The poverty threshold of the province in 2018 was estimated at Php 23,135 per capita per annum. This translates to a minimum of Php 9,636 monthly take-home income for a family of five to meet both basic food and non-food needs and be considered not poor in 2018.

Apayao recorded a percentage change of (0.8) from Php 23,310 per capita per annum in 2015. It also has the lowest food threshold per capita per annum with 16,155.

Thereby, the insufficiency of alternative livelihood opportunities to most families has been pointed out as the primary cause of poverty in Apayao.
