Details

The data contains household income and metadata in one of the sixteen regions of the Philippines called Ilocos. The data comes from two of the NSO's surveys: the 1997 Family and Income and Expenditure Survey and the 1998 Annual Poverty Indicators Survey (APIS).

Since the APIS only has a six month reference period, the original data were rescaled using an adjustment factor from the quarterly GDP figures that can be obtained from the major sectors.
