RIZAL

Rizal province is Metropolitan Manila's backyard, and is a catch basin of the NCR's development and industrialization.

The metropolis lies west of the province and the urban sprawl steady creeps into the nearby towns. Bulacan lies to the north, Quezon on the east, and Laguna on the south.

The climate is dry from November to April and wet for the rest of the year. Typhoons pass by the province during the rainy season but the mountains shield Rizal from the howlers' full force.

HISTORICAL HIGHLIGHTS

In 1639, during the Chinese uprising, the towns of Pasig, San Mateo and Taytay were sacked.

In 1762, British forces took control of Pasig, Cainta and Taytay and stayed there until 1764.

In 1853, a new political-military subdivision, Morong, was formed out of the towns on the northern shore of Laguna de Bay detached from the province of Laguna.

In June 1901, upon the recommendation of the first Philippine commission, the province of Manila was unified with the district of Morong to form a new province named after Dr. Jose P. Rizal. The province was officially and legally created by virtue of Act No. 310.

On November 8, 1975, the Metropolitan Manila area was created by virtue of Presidential Decree No. 824. The decree incorporated 12 towns of Rizal into the region, leaving only 14 towns to the province. Pasig, the capital of Rizal was also incorporated into Metro Manila.

The 2000 Census of Population and Housing (Census 2000) was undertaken by the National Statistics Office (NSO) in May 2000, as mandated by Commonwealth Act No. 591, Batas Pambansa Blg. 72 and Executive Order No. 121. 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.

In 2000, while boundary dispute has not been resolved, the policy of NSO is to exclude the household and population counts of the disputed areas, whether portion of the barangay, or entire barangay from the disputing barangays, municipalities, provinces or regions. These counts were included at the next higher level. In the case of Rizal, 18,989 persons were excluded in the population count of Barangay San Isidro of Cainta, Rizal, which are also claimed by Barangays Manggahan and Dela Paz, City of Pasig. Thus, this count was included in the national total.
