2019 Statistical Indicators on Philippine Development


The Statistical Indicators on Philippine Development (StatDev) is an instrument formulated and maintained by the PSA as a means by which economic progress and social change can be monitored and measured more effectively.  It aims to serve as an early warning measure by showing the likelihood of achieving the economic and social development goals set forth in the Philippine Development Plan (PDP), including the midterm updates. Thus, the StatDev framework is necessarily congruent with the current PDP and is revised each time a new plan is formulated.

Updates are collected annually and released every July. The reference periods of the data vary depending on the latest available data from the source agencies.  StatDev results are released on the PSA website along with technical notes, and infographics.
 

StatDev 2019 features the overall performance across the 210 indicators with submissions to PSA as of 21 July 2020 and with no pending concern with the data source agencies, accounting for 68 percent of the 307 indicators published in StatDev 2018 report. These are indicators covered in the current PDP 2017-2022 Results Matrices with latest available data mostly up to 2019 to as far back as 2017.

Due to the limitation in data submissions this year amidst the community quarantine or lockdowns due to the Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic, the results presented in this report are only preliminary. An ‘updated’ version of the StatDev 2019 report with sectoral performance and infographics will follow later within the year. It will cover results from the submission of updated/latest data for the remaining 32 percent of the indicators, including those with concerns for verification with the data sources.  Updates in the data will still be based on the current version of the PDP 2017-2022 RM, the reference document for StatDev 2019, with the midterm PDP update yet to be officially released.

The summary of StatDev 2019 indicators by sector, likelihood of achieving the target, and year of latest data available are reflected in the tables and chart below.
