Out of the 513,759 total number of households assessed, 47.1% or 1,364,844 individuals are considered poor.

NHTSPR is an information management system that identifies ‘who and where the poor are’ nationwide. This is conducted thru household assessment using the department’s Household Assessment Form (HAF). The said form contains verifiable variables which help to determine the socio-economic status such as household composition, housing structure, demographic profile, household with PWD members, access to basic necessities and Indigenous People household. .
The household assessments were completed last December 2009 covering the five provinces, two cities 71 municipalities and 1,458 barangays.

The province of Palawan has 95,952 identified poor households while 73,878 poor households in Oriental Mindoro. There are 37, 421 poor households in Occidental Mindoro and 21,230 poor households in Romblon. Nonetheless Marinduque has 14,152 poor households. Most of these poor households are found in rural areas with 83.7 % share while 16.3% reside in urban areas.

DSWD uses the Proxy Means Test (PMT), a statistical formula that approximates income to determine the poor using the socio-economic variables. The estimated household income will be compared to the poverty threshold.

As of May 2013, the Department has 167,803 households beneficiaries of the Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program out of the identified number of poor.

The data are now available to National Government Agencies, Local Government Units and other stakeholders advocating for social protection programs thru a Memorandum of Agreement on Data Sharing with the department. ###

“Masaya ako dahil makakakuha ako ng experience na magagamit ko sa school. Malaking tulong din ito sa aking pag-aaral lalo na sa pinansyal”, says Richard G. Duque, one of the GIP beneficiaries.

The beneficiaries of the program will be working in the Department for 22 days and will be receiving Php 300.00 per day for GIP and Php. 200.00 for IOP and will be assigned in the different units of the DSWD. The program is expected to end on the last day of May 2013.

Anjho Tan another beneficiary said, “Maliban sa natuto kami at nai-enhance pa ung aming skills ay nagkakaroon din kami ng mga bagong kakilala at kaibigan. Effective talaga itong programa ng gobyerno.

Abra de Ilog- To adhere to the National Household Targeting System for Poverty Reduction (NHTSPR) goal of reducing the under coverage and exclusion of the department’s social protection program, National Household Targeting Unit (NHTU) of Department of Social Welfare and Development Field Office IV-B conducted a special household assessment to a community of Indigenous People (IP) called ‘Iraya’ in Sitio Lagnas, Lumangbayan last March 12-17, 2013.

Lagnas is the farthest Sitio in Lumangbayan, Abra de Ilog, Occidental Mindoro. The Irayanons, a sub tribe of Mangyan have to walk for two days before reaching the town proper.

Regional Field Coordinator Ernie H. Jarabejo believes that the geographical location of IP communities limits the opportunity to access government’s social protection programs. Even Chairman Erwin Arile, barangay chairman, admits that he has not yet reached the area.

“Masaya ako na nagpunta kayo para kami ay matulungan kahit napakahirap ang pagpunta dito”, says Iraya Tribal Mayor Simmy Labison. The Local Government Unit thru the Municipal Social Welfare and Development Office showed valuable support to the assessment.

A total of 65 Iraya households were assessed. Habagat Validation aims to determine the post-disaster socio-economic conditions of households who were affected by the southwest monsoon last August 2012. The results will facilitate the formulation of responsive intervention.

The said validation was participated by representatives from the National Commission on Indigenous People (NCIP) Field Office IV and Office of the Mangyan Affairs (OMA), NHTU Area Coordinator, three Area Supervisors and 18 Enumerators.

NHTSPR is an information management system implemented by the DSWD that identifies ‘who and where the poor are’ nationwide. ###
