DSWD to launch new ‘Listahanan’ database in Puerto Princesa
By Celeste Anna R. Formoso
PUERTO PRINCESA CITY, June 1 (PNA) -– The Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) is set to launch in this city its new Listahanan database end of June.

SWD-MIMAROPA Regional Coordinator Ernie Jarabejo said Wednesday the new database shall involve the use of two modes in data gathering: the paper and pen Family Assessment Form (FAF) for rural barangays, and the FAF mobile version installed in android tablets for urban barangays.

The FAF is critical to determine the socio-economic status of families that contains verifiable indicators, such as household composition, housing structure, demographic profile, access to basic necessities, Person with Disability and Indigenous People, said Jarabejo.

Gathered data are encoded into a computer-based system and subjected to Proxy Means Test (PMT), a statistical model that estimates household income using proxy variables indicated in the FAF.

The estimated income will be compared to the poverty thresholds, wherein households, which income below the set provincial poverty line is considered poor.

From the 569,316 households assessed and validated, it appears 207,863 or 36.5 percent are identified poor in MIMAROPA or Occidental and Oriental Mindoro, Marinduque, Romblon and Palawan provinces.

Palawan shares the highest percentage in the regional results at 40.2 percent or 83,520 poor households, while Oriental Mindoro has 25.7 percent share or 53,323 households.

Meanwhile, Occidental Mindoro has 18.3 percent or 37,983 households; Romblon has 9.6 percent or 19,860 households; and Marinduque has 6.3 percent share or 13,177 households.

The variation of shared percentage of poor households is parallel to the geographical size and the total population enumerated per province.

“Household assessments were conducted from March 2015 until the end of December 2015 administered by 1,772 field staff covering five provinces, two cities, 71 municipalities and 1,459 barangays in eight congressional districts,” said Jarabejo.

Listahanan is the government mechanism of identifying who and where the poor are, which started in 2009. It aims to have an objective selection of potential beneficiaries for social protection programs intended for the poor. (PNA)
