Majority of Filipinos have experienced deterioration in the quality of life in the past 12 months, the latest Social Weather Station survey showed.
The question asked by SWS was: “Comparing your quality of life these days to how it was 12 months ago, would you say that your quality of life is better now than before, same as before, or worse now than before?”
According to the results released Tuesday, Oct. 26, 57% of adult Filipinos believe their life worsened in the past year while only 13% said it got better. Moreover, for 29% of Filipinos, life remained the same.
Those who said their lives got better were tagged as “gainers” while the majority who said their lives got worse were categorized as “losers.”
The resulting net gainers score (calculated by subtracting the percentage of gainers from the percentage of losers) for September is –44, which SWS considered as “extremely low.
Furthermore, the net gainers score in all areas in the country have worsened:
Metro Manila: from "very low" -30 in June to "catastrophic" -51 in September
Balance Luzon: from - “very low” 27 to “extremely low” -41
Visayas: down by 6 points -40 to -46; still “extremely low”
Mindanao: from “very low” -31 to “extremely low” -47
The non-commissioned survey was conducted nationwide on Sept. 12-16, and using face-to-face interviews with 1,200 participants aged 18 years old and above.
