This edion of the Quezon City Socio-Ecological Prole (variously called “Socio-Economic Prole”, “Socio-Economic and Physical Pro-le”, or simply “Ecological Prole”) is a milestone in a number of important ways. For one, the year 2010 is a naonal populaon cen-sus year and for once, it is possible to make a direct correlaon between the number of inhabitants and the actual condions of theirsocial, economic and physical environment at the me they were counted. This reality has tremendous signicance for planning andpolicy making. For another, the year 2010 is an elecon year and it marks the change over from one administraon to another at alllevels of polical jurisdicon except at the barangay level. In a very real sense, the data compiled in this Prole represent to a signicantdegree the accomplishments of the out-going administraon or the eects and outcomes of those accomplishments. The in-comingadministraon, in turn, may use the same data to cra programs that will have the eect of building and improving on the record of itspredecessor. This will ensure both connuity and progress.Indeed, this document was prepared on the iniave of the Belmonte administraon during the last year of its third consecuve term.The obvious objecve of such an undertaking is to document the legacy of the nine-year stewardship of the Belmonte administraonon one hand, and to provide a baseline informaon for the succeeding administraon, on the other. This Prole has therefore served asthe main data base for the craing of the Comprehensive Development Plan which is another major bequest of the Belmonte admin-istraon to its successor. The in-coming Bausta administraon thereby enjoys a headstart in that instead of beginning its term withplanning it can proceed right o with implemenng the plan. That an out-going administraon will take the trouble of handing over toits successor a set of well organized data base and a well craed development plan is a phenomenon rarely seen anywhere. Other localgovernments may take their cue from this trail-blazing act of the Quezon City government.While the Prole was prepared principally for use in planning and policy making by responsible ocials and sta of the city govern-ment, it can likewise be used by other readers for their own purposes. The compilaon of data contains minimal analysis and interpre-taon to allow dierent users to apply their own analycal frameworks to extract the desired interpretaons and conclusions from thesame data sets. High school and undergraduate college students will nd the Prole a rich resource for school reports and term papers.To graduate students the Prole can be an aide to idenfying areas for in-depth invesgaons towards the producon of theses anddissertaons.The Socio-Ecological Prole is by far the most comprehensive collecon of informaon about praccally every aspect of Quezon City. Assuch it should be open to a wide range of readership. Even casual visitors who happened to pick up a copy may nd a wealth of detailbetween covers interesng enough to make them want to take a second look. Movers and migrants who, by chance or by choice, havetaken up residence in the city may nd in the Prole enough advantages of staying in Quezon City to make them decide to becomepermanent residents. Old-me residents may yet nd new and unique features of their city and rekindle their sense of loyalty andpride of place.The producon of this document owes in large part to the painstaking eorts of the dierent sectoral commiees anchored by therespecve technical stas of the City Planning and Development Oce. That this laer oce had to play a key role owes to the currentpracce among local governments to prepare or update their Prole in conjuncon with the larger project of preparing their mandatedplans. This explains why the Prole contents are organized under the ve development sectors. However, this need not be so for long if the Prole is envisioned to reach a wide range of readership. While the tradional sectors are mandated to maintain and update theirrespecve data holdings as basic inputs in comprehensive development planning other topical headings are expected to be added infuture edions of the Prole. This opens the door for other elements of the city’s constuencies to contribute to its contents, take partin its producon and maintenance and, ulize the data sets for a variety of purposes. In terms of form and style, too, a book of factssuch as the Prole need not be one of hard and dry reading. This 2010 edion of the Socio-Ecological Prole of Quezon City, nally,aspires to set a benchmark of good pracce among local governments in the Philippines.
