The 2014 SWS Survey Review

Posted: 2014-01-13



For thirteen years, it has been a tradition of Social Weather Stations (SWS) and the Asian Institute of Management Policy Center (APC), with support from Konrad Adenauer Stiftung (KAS), to review the major lessons in the past year from the unique perspective of SWS survey respondents nationwide.

The year 2013 saw Filipino optimism undampened in the wake of natural and man-made disasters – the Zamboanga siege, the 7.2 magnitude earthquake in Bohol, and the super typhoon Yolanda (Haiyan).

The final SWS quarterly survey for 2013 captured public sentiments on various issues following the onslaught of the strongest typhoon to ever hit land.

The SWS surveys also probed national opinions on the Priority Development Assistance Fund or the Pork Barrel, hope of a peace agreement between government and the Muslim Islamic Liberation Front (MILF), the impact of climate change, as well as how Catholics felt towards the Church.

In the light of the recent national elections, the year 2013 saw record-high satisfaction with the way democracy works, and people’s approval of election surveys.

As always, the quarterly Social Weather Surveys monitored the people's sentiments on governance and on their economic and social well-being. These are among the survey findings to be reviewed in the forum.

The presentation of the 2014 SWS Survey Review will be made by Dr. Mahar Mangahas, President of SWS, on January 28, 2014, Tuesday, from 08:30-11:30 AM, at the TPIC-Bancom Room, 3/F Asian Institute of Management, Makati City.
