Statistical Indicators on Philippine Development
Updated 19 July 2012
The Statistical Indicators on Philippine Development (StatDev) is an instrument formulated and maintained by the NSCB to strengthen the planning system by providing the means by which economic progress and social change can be monitored and measured more effectively.
Specifically, the StatDev is a statistical indicator system to monitor the achievement of the economic and social development goals set forth in the Philippine Development Plan (PDP). Thus, the StatDev framework is necessarily congruent with the current PDP and is revised each time a new plan is formulated. The StatDev replaced the former Economic and Social Indicators (ESI) publication of the NSCB, starting with the StatDev 2004 released in July 2005.
The StatDev 2011 is anchored on the PDP 2011-2016 and contains data for the year 2011 covering the nine PDP sectors. Available data for 2012 are also included for a few selected indicators. The latest data are compared with the PDP targets as reflected in the PDP 2011-2016 Results Matrices (PDP-RM) to determine the achievement of these targets, thus, providing indications on the performance of the sectors during the plan period based on the indicators and data availability.
The PDP sectoral chapters with their corresponding StatDev 2011 indicators by pace of performance are reflected in the summary table below.
Summary of StatDev 2011 Indicators by Sector
and by Pace of Performance
|Competitive industry and services sector||5||1||3||9|
|Competitive and sustainable agriculture and fisheries sector||10||3||22||35|
|Accelerating infrastructure development||14||5||24||43|

Note: 1/ For indicators without targets, the pace of performance is classified as either increasing or decreasing depending on their baseline and latest data.
Technical notes have been prepared to guide the planners and decision makers on how the performance of the sectors vis-à-vis the PDP targets were determined. The StatDev simply highlights the performance of the sectors during the plan period.
