Poverty Incidence in the Philippines

Thursday, February 4, 2010

It's really a sad thing that PGMA's administration is spending oceans of public money to advertise its accomplishment during the past nine years. What is glaring though in the newspaper and TV ads is the failure of this not-so-cute adminstration to really uplift the lives of so many Filipinos.

Here is the list of provinces and their respective poverty incidence among population for 2006 as per record of the National Statistical Coordination Board (NSCB):

The top poorest provinces

1. Tawi-Tawi - 78.2%
2. Maguindanao - 69.3%
3. Zamboanga Del Norte - 67.5
4. Apayao - 63.1%
5. Northern Samar - 61.1%
6. Abra - 60.7%
7. Surigao Del Norte - 60.2%
8. Masbate - 59.5%
9. Lanao Del Sur - 58.5%
10. Misamis Occidental - 56.3%

58. Zambales - 28.9
59. Zamboanga Del Sur - 33.8
60. Zamboanga Sibugay - 50.3

Medyo luma itong data na ito pero if ever may kunting pagbabago siguro sa ranking pero sa statistics, napakarami pa ring mahihirap. Sa tingin ninyo meron bang nabago since 2006?

This is election time. I do believe that the war on poverty can only be won through GOOD GOVERNANCE. I hope the Filipino voters particularly those in the poorest provinces will really vote wisely so that only those who can truly serve the poor will win.

Till my next bulbulablog..

Parang ang hirap atang paniwalaan ng sa Batanes considering na madalas silang tamaan ng bagyo.

To Glentot at Misalyn, ang poverty incidence ay based daw sa survey sa mga tao na ang tanong ay kung ikinokonsider nila ang sarili bilang mahirap. So iyong mga tinanong ay nagkataon na hindi sila mahirap pero hindi rin ibig sabihin mayaman. Isa pa kasi maliit iyong population nila pero malaki naman ang kanilang Internal Revenue allotment kaya pwedeng nasusustentuhan iyong mga talagang nangangailangan. Dati hindi rin ako makapaniwala.
