Iloilo City: Three out of Five Persons Belonged to Voting Population

The total population of Iloilo City, as of May 1, 2000, was 366,391 persons. The figure was higher by 31,852 persons over the 1995 Census of Population results, and translated to a 1.97 percent annual population growth rate for the 1995 to 2000 period. This was higher than the 1.47 percent growth rate in the 1990 to 1995 period. If the annual population growth rate continues at 1.97 percent, then the population of the province is expected to double in 35 years.

This resulted to an average household size of 5.15 persons, higher than the 5.10 average household size recorded in 1995.
