Understanding the Extent, Composition, and Characteristics of the Poor

By Aubrey D. Tabuga, Christian D. Mina, Celia M. Reyes, Ronina D. Asis and Maria Blesila G. Datu


Probing deeper into the poverty picture, this Policy Note examines the extent, composition, and characteristics of the poor, using various rounds of the Family Income and Expenditure Survey (FIES) and Annual Poverty Indicator Survey (APIS) as panel data sets. Understanding these aspects could provide insights that may guide the government in formulating specific types of interventions for different groups of households, especially the chronic and transient poor.Philippines, chronic poor, transient poor, panel data
