    The 2010 Census of Population and Housing (2010 CPH) Report No. 1 is one of several publications designed to disseminate the results of the 2010 CPH. This report presents the population by province, city or municipality and barangay based on the 2010 CPH. This information will be useful for the formulation of the social and economic development policies, plans and programs of the Government. These are also important for purposes of the calculation of Internal Revenue Allocation, determination of number of congressional districts, and creation or conversion of various administrative geographic units.

    The 2010 CPH is the 13th census of population and the 6th census of housing that was conducted in the country since the first census undertaken in 1903. It was designed to take an inventory of the total population and housing units in the country and collect information about their characteristics as of the reference period May 1, 2010.

    The 2010 CPH data were gathered through house-to-house visit and interview of

    a responsible member of every household visited. The data processing of the results of the 2010 CPH utilized a combination of Optical Mark Reader (OMR) technology and data encoding. The 2010 CPH results on population counts underwent careful evaluation for reasonableness and consistency with expected demographic patterns and trends in accordance with evaluation procedures of international standards. Unusual changes and deviations of 2010 CPH population counts and related indicators from expected patterns and trends were field-verified.

    The successful completion of the 2010 CPH would not have been possible

    without the unwavering support and services rendered by the local and national officials, government and private agencies, media, and non-government organizations. We acknowledge with gratitude the census coordinating boards at the national, regional, provincial, city, and municipal levels in ensuring agency logistic support and assistance, the dedication of teachers from the Department of Education, the hired census personnel, and our very own NSO personnel who acted as census enumerators and supervisors, and the cooperation of the general populace. The NSO extends its deep appreciation of their support to this important undertaking.

  • EXPLANATORY NOTE Introduction The National Statistics Office conducted the 2010 Census of Population and Housing or 2010 CPH in May 2010. This is the 13th census of population and the 6th census of housing undertaken in the country. Like the previous censuses conducted by the office, the 2010 CPH is designed to take an inventory of the total population and housing units in the Philippines and to collect information about their characteristics. Content and Coverage of this Report

    In this report, the population counts by province, city/municipality and barangay

    are presented. These population counts were declared official for all purposes by His Excellency President Benigno S. Aquino III under Proclamation No. 362 dated March 30, 2012.

    Authority to Conduct the 2010 CPH Commonwealth Act (CA) No. 591, approved on August 19, 1940, authorized the

    then Bureau of the Census and Statistics (now the National Statistics Office or NSO) to collect by enumeration, sampling or other methods, statistics and other information concerning the population and to conduct, for statistical purposes, investigations and studies of social and economic conditions in the country, among others (Section 2 of CA No. 591).

    Batas Pambansa Blg. 72, approved on June 11, 1980, further accorded the NSO

    the authority to conduct population censuses every ten years beginning in 1980, without prejudice to the undertaking of special censuses on agriculture, industry, commerce, housing, and other sectors as may be approved by the National Economic and Development Authority (NEDA).

    Executive Order (EO) No. 121, otherwise known as the Reorganization Act of the

    Philippine Statistical System, which was issued on January 30, 1987, declared that the NSO shall be the major statistical agency responsible for generating general purpose statistics and for undertaking such censuses and surveys as may be designated by the National Statistical Coordination Board (NSCB) (Section 9 of EO No. 121).

    Presidential Proclamation No. 2028 Declaring May 2010 as National Census

    Month enjoined all departments and other government agencies, including government-owned and controlled corporations, as well as LGUs, to implement and
