Philippine Population in 2010: 94 Million

The Philippine population will continue to grow in the next 50 years even if each couple limits children to two, an official of the Commission on Population (Popcom) said Tuesday.

In the four months since President Benigno Aquino III occupied Malacañang, the country has about 500,000 more mouths to feed—the fastest rate of increase in Southeast Asia—bringing the population to 94 million.

Rosalinda Marcelino, Popcom director for Metro Manila, told members of the House committee on population that the population was “predominantly young,” with 35 percent below 15 years old, and 15 percent belonging to the 15-24 bracket.

“We are talking here of more than 50 percent of [Filipinos] who are young and, in due time, would become parents. And even if each couple would only have two children, our population will still continue to grow in the next 50 years,” she said in a PowerPoint presentation.
