1/ Based on the comparison of actual (from baseline to latest data) and required (from baseline to target year) rates of progress 
 
2/ Estimates were based on the refined methodology on estimating official poverty statistics as approved by the NSCB Executive Board on 1 February 2011.
 
3/  For comparability purposes with 2014 data, employment data used to compute for Indicators 1.4, 1.5, 1.7, 1.7a and 1.7b are the average of April, July and October rounds of the 2015 Labor Force Survey (LFS) which exclude the Leyte province.
 
4/ Please note that the indicator 2.1-Net Enrollment Rate was updated using an interim estimate of the population from the PSA. It must be noted that the school age population was generated using an interim methodology that has yet to be approved by the PSA Board.
 
5/ Per recommendation of the Human Development and Poverty Reduction Cluster (HDPRC), indicators 3.1a-3.1c will be given high probability of achieving the target if the value of the indicator is greater than or equal to 1 considering that Goal 3 generally concerns women.
 
6/ 1990 MMR is based on TWG Maternal and Child Health Statistics (TWG-MCHS) estimates; 2011 MMR is based on the Family Health Survey (FHS) results.
 
7/ These estimates generated from the 2014 Annual Poverty Indicator Survey does not include sample households from Batanes and Leyte. Indicators 1.5, 1.7, 1.7a, and 3.3 were revised to reflect updated figures.
