Before getting started with ADePT
Data preparation

 

Do you have micro-level data – is it household-level or individual-level data? Are your datasets saved in Stata or SPSS format? Does your data contain the variables needed to run ADEPT? What the variables in your dataset refer to the fields required in the particular ADEPT module? Are the variable names standardized (for multiple datasets)?

For the analysis later,
 

Do the outputs look reasonable? Are they internally consistent? Are they consistent with other sources?

Using Philippine Data on ADePT Poverty
11

Family Income and Expenditures Survey (FIES)
Household level data on income sources and spending patterns  Main source of poverty estimates for the Philippines  Conducted by NSO every 3 years (2009 latest)  Data contains about 40,000 household records  Regional representation  Data is publicly available in CSPro format

Poverty lines are province- and location(urban/rural) specific

Generated by NSCB

Using Philippine Data on ADePT Poverty

Official poverty estimates for the Philippines
Year 2006 2009 Source: NSCB No. of Poor Filipinos 22.2 million 23.1 million Share of Poor to Population 26.4% 26.5%

Regional estimates and many other povertyrelated statistics are also available in NSCB

Using Philippine Data on ADePT Poverty
13

Familiarity with basic concepts is CRUCIAL !
 How

are the poverty lines defined?  How is poverty measured in the Philippines? What is the unit of analysis? What poverty measures are used? How are they defined and computed? Are they comparable across time?  How are household data collected? What it their level of representation? Are they comparable across time?  Etc, etc…

ADePT Poverty Hands-on Exercise
Using FIES 2009 and 2006, answer the following:
1. 2. 3. 4. 5. What is the share of poor Filipinos living in poverty in 2006 and 2009 (poverty incidence)? What can you say about poverty in rural and urban areas? What are the 3 poorest (least poor) regions in the country in 2009 based on the poverty rate? … based on how severe poverty is? In which 3 regions are the poor concentrated the most? What is the overall level of income inequality in the country? What can you say about income disparities in urban and rural areas?

6.
7. 8.

Who are the poorest segments of the population in terms of : employment type, education, main source of income?
Was there growth in HH incomes between 2006 and 2009? By how much? Who benefited the most from this growth? What share of the population live just (20%) above the poverty threshold?
