Description
  • Abstract

    Social Weather Surveys are SWS-initiated national surveys of the general Filipino public. Dating from 1986, initially semi-annual and quarterly since 1992, these surveys are meant to supplement, not duplicate, existing government statistics. They include both core indicators monitored regularly and items on contemporary issues. A standard Social Weather Survey has two questionnaires, one for the household head and one for a random adult. The Fourth Quarter 2003 Social Weather Survey was fielded over November 8 to 24, 2003 throughout the country. It used face-to-face interviews of 1,200 respondents divided into random samples of 300 each in Metro Manila, the Balance of Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao. Adults, aged 18 and older, were asked their views on issues concerning the general topics of economics, governance, politics, diplomacy, and society, as well as issues of current public interest in the Philippines. The survey also gathers information from household heads about the members of the household and household characteristics. Demographic variables include sex, age, religion, education, marital status, household composition, language use, and occupation.

    For information on the study design, please refer to Original P.I. Documentation section of the ICPSR Codebook.
  • Methods

    To yield representative figures at the national level, census-based population weights are applied to the survey data. The weight projection is computed by dividing the projected population in the area by the sample size of the same area. Appropriate projected factors were applied so that original population proportions were reflected in the data tables using this formula: Population Projection factors (Weight)= Population/No. of Interviews. For information on weights, please refer to the survey methodology section of the Original P.I. Documentation, located in the ICPSR Codebook.
  • Methods
