2020 Statistical Indicators on Philippine Development

The Statistical Indicators on Philippine Development (StatDev) is an instrument formulated and maintained by the Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA) as a means by which economic progress and social change can be monitored and measured more effectively.  It aims to serve as an early warning measure by showing the likelihood of achieving the economic and social development goals set forth in the Philippine Development Plan (PDP), including the midterm updates. Thus, the StatDev framework is necessarily congruent with the current PDP and is revised each time a new plan is formulated.

Updates are collected annually and released every July. The reference period of the data is the previous year. For some indicators, however, the reference periods vary depending on the latest available data from the source agencies. StatDev results are released on the PSA website along with technical notes and infographics.

StatDev 2020 features the overall performance across the 300 indicators across 14 publicly available PDP sectoral chapters. These are indicators covered in the current PDP 2017-2022 Results Matrices with latest available data which are mostly up to 2020 to as far back as 2017.

The summary of StatDev 2020 indicators by sector, likelihood of achieving the target, and year of latest data available are reflected in the tables and chart below.
