national survey. We request you to assist us in informing the public by disseminating this information. The survey fieldwork was conducted from

 using face-to-face interviews. Various issues preoccupied Filipinos immediately prior to and during the conduct of the field interviews for this survey, among which are the following: (1) The filing of charges of plunder and violation of the Anti-Graft and Corrupt Practices Act before the Sandiganbayan against Senators Juan Ponce Enrile,  Jinggoy Estrada, and Ramon Revilla, Jr. on 06 June 2014; the indictment for plunder of Ms. Janet Lim Napoles as well as key members of the respective legislative staffs of Senators Enrile, Estrada and Revilla; the eventual surrender of Senators Revilla and Estrada following the issuance of warrants of arrest for them; and the "not guilty" plea entered by the Sandiganbayan on behalf of Senators Revilla and Estrada; (2) The Office of the Ombudsman's denial of the petition for immunity of Ms. Napoles, former Technology Resource Center (TRC) Chairperson Dennis Cunanan, and two officers of the National Agri-Business Corporation;
(3) The petition of the Office of the Ombudsman filed before the Supreme Court (SC) for the creation of two special courts to handle cases related to the pork barrel scam, Malacanang's support for the proposal, and the opposition to the petition expressed by the Sandiganbayan and the lawmakers indicted for plunder; (4) The decision issued by the Supreme Court (SC) declaring several acts under the Disbursement Acceleration Program (DAP) as unconstitutional for violating the doctrine of separation of powers and the constitutional provision which prohibits the inter-branch transfer of appropriations; (5) The statement of support for President Benigno S. Aquino III made by House Speaker Feliciano B. Belmonte, Jr. and other pro-administration legislators in response to calls for the President's impeachment and the resignation of Department of Budget and Management (DMB) Secretary Florencio Abad coming from some opposition lawmakers and militant groups following the SC's ruling on the DAP; (6) The creation by the Office of the Ombudsman of a panel that will investigate the realignments in the national budget made by the national administration under the DAP; (7) The Sandiganbayan's order to suspend former President and incumbent Pampanga Representative Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo for 90 days in connection with her reported involvement in the anomalous NBN-ZTE deal; (8) The continued tension between the Philippines and China over disputed territories in the West Philippine Sea with, among other things, the United Nations (UN) Permanent Court of Arbitration directing China to submit by 15 December 2014 its response to the Philippine memorandum concerning the nullification of China's claims to several territories in the area and the United States (US) encouraging China to participate in the arbitration process to defend the legal basis of its territorial claims; (9) The President's call for the Philippine National Police (PNP) to swiftly resolve crime incidents after the recent series of killings involving several high-profile individuals; (10) The confirmation of the appointments of Department of Justice (DOJ) Secretary Leila M. de Lima, Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) Secretary Corazon J. Soliman, and Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) Secretary Ramon J.P. Paje after being in office for four years; (11) The celebration of the 116th Philippine independence day on 12 June 2014 with President Aquino leading rites in Naga City; (12) The controversial decision of President Aquino to reject the nomination of Ms. Nora Aunor as National Artist for Film; and
(13) On the economic front, the continued failure of the Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) and Bureau of Customs (BOC) to meet their target collections for the month of May 2014 ; the decline in power rates charged by the Manila Electric Company (Meralco) in June 2014; the increase in oil prices due to the continued crisis in Iraq and the hike in the price of rice, garlic and sugar reportedly due to lower supply levels; and the DBM's budget proposal totalling P 2.606 trillion for the year 2015 - 15% higher than the 2014 national budget. As in our previous surveys, this nationwide survey is based on a sample of 1,200 representative adults 18 years old and above. It has a ± 3% error margin at the 95% confidence level. Subnational estimates for each of the geographic areas covered in the survey (i.e., Metro Manila, the rest of Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao) have a ± 6% error margin, also at 95% confidence level. Those interested in further technical details concerning the survey's questionnaire and sampling design may request Pulse Asia Research in writing for fuller details, including copies of the pre-tested questions actually used. Pulse Asia Research’s pool of academic fellows takes full responsibility for the design and conduct of the survey, as well as for analyses it makes based on the survey data. In keeping with our academic nature, no religious, political, economic, or partisan group influenced any of these processes. Pulse Asia Research undertakes
