Cebu: The Second Most Populated Province in the Philippines

The 2000 Census of Population and Housing (Census 2000) results showed that Cebu with a total population of 2,377,588 persons was the second most populated province in the Philippines, next to the province of Pangasinan. It registered an increase of 313,487 persons from the population recorded five years ago. This was translated to an average annual growth rate of 3.07 percent, higher than that of the 1990 to 1995 period (2.01 percent).

Over Two Million Persons in Cavite

The total population of Cavite, as of May 1, 2000, was 2,063,161 persons, up by 452,837 persons from the 1995 census result. This figure translated to an annual population growth rate of 5.45 percent from 6.47 percent during the 1990 to 1995 period. If the current annual population growth rate continues, the population of the province will double in about 13 years.

Catanduanes: Two Out of Five Housing Units Built from 1996 to 2000

The total population of Catanduanes, as of May 1, 2000, was 215,356 persons.

A corresponding increase on the number of households was also recorded at 41,019 households, higher by 2,697 households over the 1995 figure. This resulted to an average household size of 5.25 persons, slightly lower than the average household size (5.28 persons) recorded five years ago.

Siquijor: The Least Populated Province in Central Visayas

The province of Siquijor registered a total population of 81,598 persons in the year 2000 from 73,756 in 1995.

Similarly, the number of households also rose to 17,351, higher by 1,454 households from 1995. This gave an average household size of 4.7 persons, a slight increase from the 1995 average of 4.6 and lower than the national average of five persons.
