Population growth rate increased to 6.36 percent

The 2000 Census of Population and Housing (Census 2000) results showed that Mandaue City registered a total population of 259,728 persons, higher by 64,983 persons over the 1995 Census of Population (POPCEN) results. This figure recorded a 6.36 percent annual population growth rate, lower by 4.91 percentage points than the annual population growth rate during the 1990 to 1995 period. A corresponding increase on the number of households was also recorded at 54,882 households, higher by 13,941 households over the 1995 figure. This resulted to an average household size of 4.72 persons, slightly lower than the average household size (4.75 persons) recorded five years ago and the national average of five persons.

The population of the city to double after eleven years

If the average annual growth rate of the population continues at 6.36 percent, the population of Mandaue City is expected to double after eleven years, increasing by 16,519 persons every year or about 45 persons per day.

Half of the population below 22 years old

About three in every five women belonged to the childbearing ages

Economically active persons increased by about 39 percent

About 64 percent of the total population or 165,677 persons belonged to productive ages (15 to 64 years). This resulted to about 39 percent increase from the 1995 figure of 119,456 persons. About 34 percent were young dependents (aged 0 to 14 years) while more than two percent were old dependents (aged 65 years and above). The overall dependency ratio in 2000 was 57, lower than the 1995 ratio of 61.45. This meant that for every 100 persons aged 15 to 64 years, there were about 57 dependents, i.e., 53 young dependents and four old dependents.

Nine out of every ten persons attended school

More than 92 percent of the total household population aged five years and over had attended school; 35 percent, elementary; 32 percent, high school; and 25 percent with higher education.

MANDAUE CITY

Mandaue City is situated on the central coastal plains of the Province of Cebu, approximately at 10-19' - 40.34" degrees latitude and 123-5-28,16"degrees longitude. Mandaue has an average elevation of land at 55 ft. above sea level. It is bounded by the municipality of Consolacion to the north, the City of Cebu to the south and west, and by the Mactan Channel to the east.

Between 1580 to 1700 when the Spaniards succeeded in taking over the majority of the Philippine Archipelago, Mantaui/Mantawi was formally constituted into a 'pueblo' or town and then was officially known as town of Mandaue. The locality covered a total land area of about five thousand (5,000) hectares. During the first year of its township, Mandaue had 42 barrios and with a population of 21,086.

The year 1948, years after the second World War, a new emerging progressive municipality and a more determined community re-established the prominence of Mandaue in social, economic and cultural concern. The year 1964 ushered an era of a more spirited effort towards social and economic development. The same year marked the beginning of a determined bid for a more autonomous local government and the perpetuation of Mandaue as an independent and progressive community. Thus, in June 21, 1969, the City of Mandaue was born.

It was the 11th census of population and 5th census of housing undertaken in this country since the first census in 1903. It was designed to take an inventory of the total population and housing units all over the Philippines and to collect information about their characteristics. Census day for the Census 2000 was May 1, 2000 (12:01 a.m.). Enumeration started on May 1, 2000 and lasted for about 30 days.

Being a highly urbanized city, the population of Mandaue City was excluded in the population of Cebu. As defined in the 1991 Local Government Code, a city is considered highly urbanized if it has an annual income of not lower than fifty million pesos based on 1991 constant prices, as certified by the city treasurer; and its population is at least two hundred thousand (200,000) inhabitants, as certified by NSO.
