PN 2017-17: Measure and Determinants of Chronic and Transient Poverty in the Philippines

The Philippines has a long history of battle against poverty. Unfortunately, despite the government's various poverty reduction and social protection programs, the country still failed to reduce poverty level by half in 2015. This Policy Note investigates the determinants that drive households into chronic and transient poverty in the Philippines. Using a generalized linear model, this study finds that education, asset ownership, employment, family size, dependency burden, and armed conflict are the determinants of such kinds of poverty in the country. Among others, it recommends the institutionalization of the Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program given its capability to assist poor households in sending their children to school. It also encourages the government to continue in its efforts to intensify and accelerate the implementation of programs that promote family planning, particularly the Responsible Parenthood and Reproductive Health Act.
