Functional Literacy, Education and Mass Media Survey


The Functional Literacy, Education and Mass Media Survey (FLEMMS) is a survey conducted by the National Statistics Office (NSO) every five years.

The FLEMMS presents comprehensive statistics on the latest status of literacy, education, and mass media exposure of Filipinos. It brings together a wide range of information that serves as a guide for government policy makers, program planners, and decision makers in providing a much broader scope of action and more focused program intervention on the target beneficiaries of development plans. It is also very useful in private businesses and industries as well as in academic researches and development projects.
