COVID PULSE PH: A Better Normal for the Poor
Sep 1, 2021
This summary report highlights findings from the COVID Pulse PH Phase 3 study using data gathered from March 3 to April 11, 2021 with an effective sample size of 17,805 households. In this report, comparisons on background and socioeconomic variables were done across geographic regions and household clusters. Personas of the respondents were also determined using cluster analysis. Ultimately, COVID Pulse PH aims to help chart the way forward by taking stock of the needs, capabilities, and aspirations of the poor.
COVID Pulse PH is a collaborative endeavor of the Zero Extreme Poverty Philippines 2030 (ZEP PH 2030)—a coalition of non-government entities (NGEs) and networks—and the United Nations Development Programme Philippines (UNDP PH) to take a pulse on how the poor in the Philippines have been affected by COVID-19. COVID Pulse PH Phase 3 continues the study of the impacts of COVID-19 on the well-being of poor families throughout the country. It also inquires into how poor Filipinos can be supported to achieve a better normal of sustainable livelihood. The third phase expands the coverage of COVID PULSE PH to Nueva Ecija, Sorsogon, Bohol, Eastern Visayas, Bukidnon, Sarangani, and General Santos City.
