STANDARD OF LIVING IN THE PHILIPPINES GETTING BETTER ACCORDING TO SURVEY?

     There are 9.4 million families in the Philippines who considered themselves poor and “food poor” in the past three months.   This is based on a nationwide survey conducted by Social Weather Station (SWS) last September 24-27 among 1,200 respondents.   (VIDEO:Porsyento ng mga Pilipinong nagsasabing mahirap sila, nabawasan base sa survey ng SWS)      This means that four in 10 Filipino families consider themselves poor or "mahirap".  Base on the result, it is the new record low and the lowest self-rated poverty since April 1983 after the result shows that 42% of Filipino families rated themselves poor. “Food-poor” means families consider the food they eat as poor.      Compared to last June 2016, there are 45% of Filipino families across the country who considered themselves poor or an equivalent of 10.5 million households.    Also pointed out that the self-rated poverty result “has been either steady or declining for eight consecutive quarters” as follows:      • 52 percent in December 2014 • 51 percent in March 2015 and June 2015 • 50 percent in September 2015 and December 2015 • 46 percent in April 2016 • 45 percent in June 2016, and • 42 percent in September 2016.   According to SWS, there were fewer Filipino families saying that they are poor in the rest of Luzon from 41 percent to 34 percent and Mindanao with 54 percent to 49 percent.   However, in Metro Manila, self-rated poverty increases from 32 percent to 36 percent and the Visayas from 52 percent to 56 percent.     Residents in Metro Manila who consider themselves poor said that they would need at least P16,000 per month to be not included as "poor."  For the rest of Luzon, they said, they need P15,000 per month while P10,000 per month in Visayas and Mindanao.            ©2016 THOUGHTSKOTO
