Provincial population data indicate need for population management

by Elsa S. Subong

ILOILO CITY, Jan. 30 (PIA6) -- The initial results of the comprehensive population data gathering initiated by the Iloilo Population Office showed a need for managing population.

Provincial Population Officer Ramon Yee said that the data they have consolidated have shown a trend which he considered a reality in the province and even all throughout the country.

“This reality calls for effective implementation of responsible parenthood and family planning,” Yee said.

He said findings show that low income households with low education, have low practice of family planning.

On the other hand, households with higher income and higher educational attainment, have small family size.

Not making a generalization, Yee said some implications can already be made such as the need for population education.

Yee said the data bank they are currently working on is in the process of encoding and cleansing, merging and statistical analysis.

He said all the 1,721 barangays in Iloilo have been surveyed, covering 237,920 households. About 1,193 of these barangays are already encoded in the system.

Yee said he was pleased that the population data bank is beginning to take shape and this could serve as a reference for local officials in formulating plans and projects that truly respond to the actual needs.

“This is actually a bias for the importance of data in governance, particularly in population management, which we usually ignore,” Yee said.

Yee addded that the data bank is a boost to the national government’s thrust for population and development integration planning.

Yee said the data bank can also aid in addressing poverty-related concerns because of information on poverty level through distribution of income and other economic data.

Further, Yee said, the data also cover food production, health and other social services.

When completed, the population data bank will present updated, reliable and comprehensive information, Yee added. (JSC/ESS-PIA6 Iloilo)
