WHO have run for senator and won in the last five elections since 2004?
As of the May 2016 elections, how many of the registered voters actually voted, and in which provinces, towns, and cities of the country? How many are women, how many men? How big, how small, are our voters, by age group? How many come from the indigenous communities? How many are persons with disability?
In your town, city, province, or region, what is the picture, by data and stats, of the state of education, health, social services, labor and employment, the environment, public order, and poverty?
Let us help you get started.
Click on the Philippine map on PCIJ’s homepage to explore PCIJ’s database on “Voter Statistics and Elected Officials.”
A searchable database, it allows you to drill down data by region, province, and city/municipality in the last five national and local elections held in 2004, 2007, 2010, 2013, and 2016.
On the main filter, click on any of the 18 regions of the country to get data on any of the provinces each covers.
Click on the filter for cities and towns that each province covers and you will get more granular data.
Pie charts will give you the composite data. But you have another option: mouse over the colors of the pie charts to launch more specific data.
This database was organized by PCIJ’s Data Team using the Philippine Statistical Geographic Codes or PSGC that define the administrative/geographical boundaries of the nation by specific periods in time.
If you want more data, let’s get moving. After all, this database is just a part of PCIJ’s Money Politics Online, a data journalism project of PCIJ.
Money Politics Online is a treasure trove of data and public documents on elections, public funds, and governance that PCIJ has gathered, sorted, analyzed, and digitized to serve as a research and analysis tool for citizens.
On the leaderboard of Money Politics Online, click on the Governance bar, and then the Socio Econ tab, to get more data on 12 major categories:
• Labor and Employment;
• Public Administration;
• Public Order, Safety, and Justice;
• Science and Technology; and
• Social Services.
Each category launches dozens of data fields as indicators.
The process is just as easy – you just have to click on each category, and the filter for indicators, and, where applicable, drill down on more filters for location (region or province), or calendar year.
PCIJ built the Socio Econ page of Money Politics Online using the government’s Philippine Statistical Yearbook (PSY) as basic foundation.
The data for the categories and indicators are robust and layered for most, with some information leading back to the ‘70s, but in some cases, are still thin and sparse.
Money Politics Online has moved PSY’s data steps further and farther, however.
In Money Politics Online, you may see, grab, and analyze all the available data on each of the 100-plus indicators across time, and in a matter of seconds.
Our Data Team has done more for you. Bar and line graphs, pie charts, and data tables on these indicators will give you a quick, easy, and enjoyable read!
We’d all do well to check out how the numbers fall, for good reason or bad, and why, on the state of our towns, cities, provinces, and regions, before the day of the vote.
Happy browsing, friends!
