Adolescent fertility rate in the Philippines 2008-2017

The majority of the population in the Philippines adhere to Christian faith, where 84 percent are Roman Catholics. Despite birth control legalization in the Philippines, abortion is strongly opposed by many due to the moral issue it poses. The adolescent fertility rate in the Philippines was about 54 births per 1,000 women aged 15 to 19 years old in 2017.

Local households

In 2015, there were around 20 million households in the Philippines. With the increasing population, the forecasted number of households by 2021 would be 21.8 million. To meet the demand of the growing households, spending on food and non-alcoholic beverages rose to approximately 2.6 billion Philippine pesos in 2019. Additionally, household final consumption expenditure continued rising since 2010 and totalled 6.7 trillion Philippine pesos that same year.


The total number of people employed in the Philippines was around 4.3 million as of 2017. The government’s infrastructure program aimed to create robust economic growth generated 50 thousand new jobs in the real estate sector in the same year. Coupled with this was the decrease in the unemployment rate at 2.5 percent, the lowest since 1999.
