Filipino families earned a total of P3.01 trillion in 2006 according to the final results of the 2006 Family Income and Expenditure Survey (FIES). Distributing this total annual income among the estimated 17.4 million Filipino families in 2006 resulted in an average annual family income of approximately P173 thousand. The total annual family expenditure was approximately P2.56 trillion, or P147 thousand per family on the average (Table 1).
