Employed-provide employment for; have or keep in one's service.
Unemployed-people who are without work
Underemployed-workers that are highly skilled but working in low
paying jobs, workers that are highly skilled but work in low skill jobs
and part-time workers that would prefer to be full-time.

Labor Data

Decline share of labor income in GDP

* Therefore this situation forced many Filipinos to join Underground
economy(Black Market) , Informal Sector (Bangketa) , or to look for jobs

Population and Poverty

Poverty incidence is HIGH (24.9%) and Food Poverty average was
(40%) in 2013.
As the Household size increases, theres a corresponding percentage
increase in self-rated poverty.
* Areas in the world where poverty is common include India, SouthEast Asia, Africa and South America (third world countries.)
However, most countries in the world experience poverty to some
degree, including Australia. Many people that experience poverty
live on the outskirts of cities.

Population and Hunger

Hunger Incidence declined from 19.1%(2010) to 17.8 %(2014).
Larger family size = more likely the family suffers hunger.

Population and Housing

Rapid Population growth is faster than the ability of the families and
government to put up decent housing for the growing families.
The annual public expenditures for housing of the government is even
less than 1% to the total government expenditures of the country.

NSO Study:
Filipinos reside in the houses they own regardless of socio-economic
Others renters or sharers.
Most occupied housing units are Single houses.
Multi-Unit residential and Duplex Residential units compromises the
number of occupied housing units which needed minor repair or do
not need repair at all. These are relatively high than those who are
Housed in buildings needed major repair at all.

Median floor area of a typical household occupied unit is 29.63

Studies pointed out also that half of the total housing needs (56%) are
in Southern tagalog, Metropolitan Manila and in the visayas ( 21%)
and the remaining are in Mindanao (23%).
* Government is helpless in meeting the countrys growing needs,
setting aside the idea that whatever houses were built by the
government are beyond the reach of the urban poor.

Population and Growth in

Slum- a squalid and overcrowded urban street or district inhabited by
very poor people.
Demands for housing in the urban areas continue to grow as a result
of the continuous urban migration of the informal settlers
Lowest housing ownership cities : NCR particularly Manila, QC and
Kaloocan. Which shows an indication of high incidence of inmigration from provinces to other regions.

Population and Health

The state of health of the Filipinos has improved as indicated by a

longer life expectancy from 67.1 (2000) to 72(2010).
Lower crude death rate from 5.41(2000) to 5 (2010) deaths per
Lower infant mortality rate of 16 deaths (2000) to 13 deaths (2006)
per thousand
Increase in maternal mortality rate from 1,698 (2000) to 1,721(2006)
per thousand population and decrease also in the prevalence of
underweight among 0-5 age bracket.

Increased in government and private hospitals and number of hospital

bed capacity.
MOST HOSPITALS are found in urbanized areas of CALABARZON,
Central Luzon, NCR, Ilocos, and Cagayan Valley.
Such cities that lacks the much needed hospitals and personnel are
Initializing Barangay Health Stations and Paramedical Practitioners.

Population and Water


Increasing population demands increase in the quantity and quality of water supply.
Urban population have potable water supply and that there is a need to reach six million
people in the provincial areas.
According to 2010 Phil MDG Progress report: almost 1 in 5 persons is still unable to access
safe water despite abundant water reserves.
Many filipinos are dependent on the traditional methods of getting water from pipes, deep
wells, springs, rivers , stream, rain and other water sources.
Poor and inadequate potable water supply often leads to Cholera, amoebae infection and
high risk of diarrhea incidence.

Population and Waste

Serious problem of the country.
Reports showed that most households have private toilets and very
few households have septic tanks and water-sealed depository and
the rest used closed pit , open pit, pail system or none at all.
Rural areas have lower access to basic sanitation facilities and
management services than urban areas.
