Kidapawan City Richest City in Mindanao
« on: November 27, 2008, 04:00:40 pm »
Kidapawan City in North Cotabato is the richest among the cities and municipalities in Mindanao based on the 2003 poverty incidence data of the National Statistical Coordination Board (NSCB) Davao, besting General Santos City, Davao City and even Cagayan de Oro City, according to NSCB regional head Estrella R. Turingan.

“We were also surprised with the result of the survey but this can be blamed on the inflation rate in Davao and in other cities and municipalities which were rated behind Kidapawan City,” Turingan said.

NSCB poverty incidence refers to the proportion of population or number of families with per capita income below the poverty threshold.

Turingan said this is the first time that they were able to get statistics up to the municipality level due to budget constraints. NSCB generates statistics on the provincial level every three years and the 2003 data is their newest available data.

“We were only able to afford conducting the survey up to the municipality level because the project was financed by the World Bank,” she said.

Kidapawan City is a first class city and is the capital of North Cotabato. It is known primarily as a tourist destination for those who want to climb Mt. Apo, the country’s highest peak.

With a poverty incidence of only 12.46%, Kidapawan City bested General Santos City (13.98%), Polomolok (14.29%), Davao City (14.94), Tagum City (15.42%), Cagayan de Oro City (15.50%), Koronadal City (16.18%), Digos City (18.22%), Padada (21.99%) and Hagonoy (22.60%).

Kidapawan City is the only area in North Cotabato that has made it to the top 10 richest cities and municipalities based on poverty incidence. The provinces of South Cotabato and Davao del Sur each had three areas in the Top 10 list.

“Poverty threshold is driven by the price of the basic necessities for the current year. It appears that the average income of Davao City’s residents are not enough to catch up with the price increases in the city,” Turingan said. - PNA

As I see it, the parameter used in this survey only covers the puchasing power of the people in the community. Why not include the level of corruptions in the local government? Level of corruption is often neglected in the survey because they find it hard to determine the likelihood of this particular discrete variable because this is stochastic in nature. The other parameter is easy to assess given the price of prime commodities and the average family income per capita. I may call this report as 'very misleading' because it doesn't in any way give the true picture of poverty in a particular area.

that's what you get with economic statistics: distorted pictures.

 I am living in DigosCity. Its an hour ride to Kidapawan but we didn't
 hear or read that Kidapawan is the richest  city in Mindanao. There
 in no major industry  and factories. The main  product is rubber.
 Poverty incidence of 12.46 in not the only the only bases to consider.

 I don't think so if  it can surpass Davao City.

There are large farms, cattles and sheeps. I got well-to do classmates (noong aalaw) from Ateneo de Davao. Agricultural area is big, mao tingali nga menos ang gutom.
