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.
100 miilion??? c'mon Philippines you can do better than that... you have lots and lots of rooms for expansion...you can't slow down now... you're getting closer to becoming the most populous country in the WORLD and that's really something to be proud of... who cares about poverty... it's GOD's blessing!!!
Hello. May i ask some of you for those who know the answer kung bakit mas mataas ang population ng 2012 sa 2013 at bakit bumaba sa 2014? Please answer me -.- i need it for my report about this. 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.
Hi! I'm trying to look for the number of minimum wage earners in the Philippines via google but couldn't find it. Hope you have that info, also if you have the number of billionaires, millionaires and salaried work force (middle class). Thanks a lot!
historically speaking, miss rossana o. naduaran is correct on that. please refrain from using MOROS to our muslim brothers and sisters.The term (Moro) is synonymous to thief.. From Catholic to our Muslim brethrens, Assalam Ulai Kum!
good day. I am a filipino muslim female. i would like to caught your attention on using MOROS describing muslim population in the philippines. If i may correct it, please use the word MUSLIMS instead of former terminology that doesn't quite sound favorable to us. thank you and May the blessings of ALLAH be with you.

Parang sobra naman ata, 2010 population is 92,337,852. Sabi ng NSO ang annual population growth rate ng Pilipinas ay 1.9%. Kung ganito na population ngayon ibig sabihin ang population annual population growth rate ay nasa 5% na parang napakaimposible naman.
NO. RH BILL SHOULD BE IMPLEMENTED...PEOPLE BEFORE YOU SAY YOUR COMMENTS AGAINST RH BILL, Could you please read the whole bill? You're talking too much yet you didn't even read the whole bill. FYI: The bill is not for the rich and middle class. The bill is for the poor and marginalized people in the country who cannot afford to pay for contraceptives or other birth planning methods.. LET US NOT BE BRAINWASHED OR DECEIVED BY WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING. LET US NOT BE BLINDED BY OUR FAITH IN THIS TOPIC. RH BILL IS NOT PRO ABORTION. IT IS PRO LIFE. In that number of population in the Philippines, do you think all can live in prosperous. How about the poor? If they cannot make the right plan, their families will continue to suffer poverty because their income is not enough for the size of their family. SO, WHAT IM SAYING IS, BEFORE YOU SPEAK, YOU READ THE BILL!!! Don't talk too much and don't be easily deceived by heresay.
I hope RH Bill will be implemented as soon as possible. I hope the Lord will guide our government. Our resource is getting limited, population is growing. how about the next next next generations. Omg.

i am very happy for we are given a chance by God to live in this world. but, it is reality for now that the population of the Philippines most especially the Metro Manila had risen its population gradually. all i can say is we need to think first of what will happen as the years that will pass by. the basic necessities cost higher and higher.
sana po ay lalo pa nating paigtingin ang kaalaman ng mga pilipino para sa pag kokontrol ng pag papamilya, at kahalagahan ng pinag aralan para po sa gayon tayo tayo na rin ang tutol sa pag dami ng ating mga anak.at ipa alam din po natin sa kanila na hindi sagot ang pag dami ng anak sa pag unlad ng kabuhayan ng pamilya. kaya po natin iyan kung mag kaka isa tayo.
