**/ Includes P540 billion Short-term borrowing

1/ The Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA) is availing the flexibility option for this category.

2/ The periodicity of Employment and Unemployment data is every quarter particularly every January, April, July and October. Previous data refers to the previous round of the Labor Force Survey and is not seasonally adjusted. The reference period is the "past week" referring to the seven days preceding the date of visit of the enumerator. Starting April 2005, the new unemployment definition was adopted per NSCB Resolution No. 15 dated October 20, 2004, to wit: the unemployed include all persons who are 15 years old and above as of their last birthday and are reported as (1) without work; AND (2) currently available for work; AND (3) seeking work OR not seeking work due to valid reasons.

3/ The data refers to the average monthly wage rate across the selected occupations in the selected industries. The Philippines is using the "as relevant" flexibility for this data and will publish wage rates statistics with a periodicity of two years and a timeliness of 12 months.

4/ January - November 2005. The data include only the financing of the national government, and the 14 monitored non-financial government corporations (MNGGCs).

5/ Breakdown of domestic financing was revised due to the change in the basis used for the calculation

6/ Beginning 3 June 2016, the BSP shifted its monetary operations to an interest rate corridor (IRC) system. The repurchase (RP) window was replaced by the standing overnight lending facility (OLF). Meanwhile, the reverse repurchase (RRP) facility was
modified to a purely overnight RRP.

7/ The Philippine Stock Exchange (PSE) is the primary source of data while the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP) compiles the data. Daily updates are available at the BSP website.

8/ Daily updates and other convertible currencies with the BSP are available at the BSP website.

9/ Population Projection by Single-Year Interval (Medium Assumption). Previous data is for 2007.

10/ Scheduled release of CGO statistics as posted in the advance release calendar (ARC) will be postponed until further notice in view of the ongoing enhanced community quarantine in Luzon as a precautionary measure against the spread of Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19).

11/ On 17 March 2020, the BSP issued an announcement on the delay of release of statistics on DCS, CBS, International Reserves and Foreign Currency Liquidity, Reserves Template and IIP, which were committed in the 2020 ARC of SDDS and NSDP. In view of the ongoing enhanced community quarantine in Luzon as a precautionary measure against the spread of COVID-19, the scheduled release of these statistics will be postponed until further notice. The announcement of the BSP on the postponement of these statistics was posted at:  http://www.bsp.gov.ph/statistics/schedules.asp.
