Total Population of the Philippines 2018

Philippines is a sovereign state in Southeast Asia in the western Pacific Ocean. It ranks in the top 20 most populated countries in the world.
 
We based our figures below according to the estimate of the Commission on Population (POPCOM) of the Philippines and the Central Intelligence Agency(CIA), a US Government agency responsible for providing national security intelligence to senior US policymakers.
We must also be aware of the total number of unregistered children/people in the Philippines (especially those who are living on the very remote areas in the Philippines). Therefore, the estimated figure might be lower than the real total number of population of the Philippines.

as per se, population itself around the world might decrease or increase, as for us in Philippines, the situation is more like that, decreasing because there's some Filipinos who died or prefer to live abroad, I mean live in another country, increasing because, most Filipinos, who doesn't have job they don't do anything just doesn't care about what so called family planning, what's all in their mind, the more the merrier in their family household, but what will happen to this children, if you are in poverty, you have to think million times, if you will add another child to feed, another human being who will suffer of poverty. yeah, I'm talking to my experience... and thank God at least we can have sumthing now on our table. I hope government will give more attention on family planning projects... If you already have, two or three children, that's it. Just my opinion and suggestion, thank you.

It's quite scary to live there. If you catch disease. You have no money to get accepted in the Hospital. Your doomed ! People living near the poverty line continues to increase the members of their families. The future of their kids is very bleak. The next generation will pay a heavy price from what their ancestors started decades before. They suffer today. Then their next generation will suffer for the same consequences. They are so desperate. Even our rich Government leaders has done only quite a bit to assist poverty stricken families.
