Pope Francis wants surveys

By

I might have guessed that the main reason for my being invited to the Loyola School of Theology (LST) was that Pope Francis, bless his kind heart, had just sent Catholic bishops everywhere a set of questions, with a directive to answer these right away.

Surveys and public opinion

By

For many senatorial candidates who take elections seriously and exert great effort to address the important issues of the day, it must be terribly frustrating to be confronted by the results of preelection surveys. Nothing seems to matter except sheer media exposure and possession of a familiar name in order to score high. The preference for incumbents leaves one wondering if the Filipino electorate is content with the way things are.

Poverty thresholds and family size

By

An earlier piece (“Poverty fell in 2011 Q4,” Inquirer, 1/28/2012) pointed out that the quarterly SWS poverty surveys also ask the household head of each poor family for the minimum monthly peso budget for home expenses needed in order not to feel that the family is poor. “Home expenses” are explained by the interviewer to the respondent as excluding any work-related expenses, like commuting to work by the household’s earners.

Flaws of hunger polls

By

Other than the three “bad-news” Cabinet members he mentioned, it is the Social Weather Stations’ hunger polls that must be giving President Benigno Aquino III headaches.
