A non-commissioned survey conducted by the Social Weather Station (SWS) found that many Filipinos feel a decline in their quality of life over the past year. Six out of every 10 Filipinos shared this belief regarding the last 12 months in face-to-face interviews.


Conducted from Sept. 12 to 16, there were 1,200 respondents nationwide of the third quarter 2021 SWS survey.


Results released last October 26 show that 57 percent of respondents believed the quality of life declined. Only 13 percent said things got better for them. Those who didn’t see a difference from a year ago amounted to 29 percent.


As identifiers, SWS used “losers” for the 57%, “gainers” for the 13%, and “unchanged” for the 29%.


Gainers minus percentage of losers were referred to as “net gainers:” The resulting score came to -44, or what is “extremely low” according to SWS.
Ever since April 1983, the survey question on the respondents’ assessment of their quality of life’s shift has been fielded 1432 times.


In a statement, SWS said:“The September 2021 Net Gainer score is 13 points down from the very low -31 in June 2021, arresting the recovery from the catastrophic -76 in September 2020 to extremely low -48 in November 2020 and very low -38 in May 2021.”


Their grading or points system ranges from “excellent” for scores +20 and above all the way down to “catastrophic” for scores -50 and below. The Philippines’ score puts it at the lower end of the “extremely low,” category.
