Out of 1,208,807 assessed households, 96,466 of which are identified poor while 1,112,341 are non-poor. This assessment was conducted in sixteen (16) cities and one (1) municipality in the National Capital Region (NCR).

Data sharing partnerships with various social protection stakeholders are established through a memorandum of agreement to ensure data privacy and to guarantee that the data will only be used as guide for selecting beneficiaries and developing various poverty alleviation and social welfare and development programs.

Listahanan is an information management system that identifies who and where the poor are in the country. It is also an effective mechanism to conduct a fair and transparent selection process for various government programs. It serves as a means to improve the governance by removing political patronage from distribution of public resources to citizens.

Therefore, DSWD encourages other Local Government Units to enter data sharing partnership through Memorandum of Agreement to access the list of poor household of Listahanan 2. ###
