PRESIDENT Duterte

PRESIDENT Duterte

Majority of Filipinos expressed satisfaction with the Duterte ad­ministration’s performance in the last quarter of 2018, based on the Social Weather Stations survey re­sults released on Tuesday.

In the nationwide survey con­ducted from Dec. 16 to 19, 2018 among 1,440 adult respondents, SWS found 76 percent of Filipinos satisfied, 15 percent neither satis­fied nor dissatisfied, and 9 percent dissatisfied with the general per­formance of the current national administration.

This translates to a net satisfac­tion rating of +66 (percent satis­fied minus percent dissatisfied), classified by SWS as “very good.”

SWS pointed out that the latest net rating is 16 points higher than the very good +50 (65 percent sat­isfied, 15 percent dissatisfied) in September 2018.

SWS terminology for net satis­faction ratings are translated as follows: +70 and above as “excel­lent,” +50 to +69 “very good,” +30 to +49 “good,” +10 to +29 “mod­erate,” +9 to –9 “neutral,” -10 to –29 “poor,” -30 to –49 “bad,” -50 to –69 “very bad,” and -70 and below “execrable.”

The Duterte administration’s net satisfaction rating rose from very good to excellent in Mindanao, up by eight points from +67 in Sep­tember 2018 to +75 in December 2018.

It also went up from good to very good in Visayas, up by 21 points from +42 in September to +63 in December.

In Metro Manila, it rose from good to very good, increasing by 20 points from +40 in September to +60 in December.

It also rose from good to very good in the rest of Luzon, up by 17 points from +48 in September to +65 in December.

Urban net satisfaction with the national administration improved from good to very good, up by 23 points from +45 in September 2018 to +68 in December 2018.

Meanwhile, rural net satisfac­tion remained very good, from +54 in September to +65 in De­cember.

Filipinos’ net satisfaction with the Duterte administration significantly improved from good to excellent in upper-to-middle class ABC, up by 25 points from +47 to +72; from good to excellent in class E or the “poorest,” up by 21 points from +49 to +70; and stayed very good in class D or “masa,” up by 15 points from +50 to +65.

The administration’s ratings also improved among 25-34 years old (up from very good +53 to excel­lent +71), among 55 years old and above (up from good +47 to very good +63), and among college graduates (up from very good +52 to excellent +73). (Ellalyn Ruiz)
