Philippines population to hit 107 million in 2018


MANILA, Philippines — From 105.53 million last year, the country’s population will rise to 107.19 million by the end of 2018, the Commission on Population (PopCom) said yesterday.

Citing projections by the Philippine Statistics Authority based on the latest census in 2015, PopCom executive director Juan Antonio Perez III said the population was estimated to grow to 107,190,081 by Dec. 31 from 105,377,586 in 2017.

Perez said the increase would be boosted by some 1.8 million babies expected to be born this year, representing a growth rate of 1.69 percent.

“That means we will be adding 4,953 Filipinos per day, or 206 every hour in 2018,” he told The STAR.

Marami rin ang mga Pinay na nagreklamo na binugbog ng asawang Porenjer! Minsan, naging libreng caregiver na din! Di naman pwedeng ipagdasal mong ma dedo dahil paano na ang datung?
Kasama ba sa bilang yung mga Pinay na nakapag asawa ng AFAM pero nakatira na sa ibang bansa?

Dami din ngayon na Pinay na nagsusundo sa airport ng mga AFAM nila
rumarami rin naman ang young couples.. tulad ng AMWF (Asian Male and White Female) na pinoy ang husband tapos eastern european na babae at american na babae... dahil sa pagsikat ng mga asiano dahil sa tulong narin ng k-pop at anime
^^Mukhang 2017-2022 is really a turn around for us population wise. Pati teenage pregnancy bumaba narin

I think from now on pababa na talaga yun trend for population parameters.

Next 20 years will be our golden opportunity to escape middle income trap

Yan ang strategy ng mga matatandang foreigner..mag aasawa ng pinay kunyari pero gusto lang pala gawing caregiver. This should be made aware to all Filipinas out there. Pero, unfortunately to some that is the only better alternative para humango sa hirap.

Ang tawag dun sa laro ng ajedrez "sacrifice the queen"!
Very fitting, itumba mo ang queen mo at na macheck-mate mo ang "dollah$$$$$" Kawawa ang sacrificial lambs na Pinay!

Maybe Pinoy men should up their game then...

Ang dumami na ngayon ay mga single moms.

Kahit mga foreigners na nakausap ko sa ibang bansa ang tingin sa karamihan ng Pinay ay mga single mom.
Sana lang kapag nagkaanak ang mga yan, wag nila kalimutan bigyan ng PH passports ang mga anak para hindi hirap sa pag approve ng future Gilas Line up.

^^Haha.

Napaisip tuloy ako. Gaganapin world cup dito baka pwedeng magvolunteer ang mga Pinay na mahilig sa afam malahian man lang ng basketball genes.
Mukhang no brainer yang article na yan ah!
Why compare the same period when the situations are so contrastingly different? Who would like to get married if your relatives cannot join you in your most important event in life? If there is revenge spending, there will be revenge marriage, so to speak!
May utak din po yata ang newswriter na yun!
Tacardon pointed out that the two surveys did not include pregnancies in the 10 to 14 age group.
we are now about Japan's population, but they are a rich country where is more work for its people. we are poor a country with a huge population, a declining birth rate is better for us since there is not enough jobs to go around for our people.
That is a valid vision when people are trapped in their countries decades ago. People are unable to travel in search of greener pastures! The ability to travel is a game changer and finding jobs away from your area helps workers.
That is why companies now understand workers and not trying to hold on to workers who intend to go out of their employ. It helps the workers personally, and maybe, just maybe, the company can replace them with workers from afar that are better than the ones who left.
Once there will be lesser travel restrictions, and the only thing that matters is the ability of persons to pay the indicated fare, we will see people of different nationalities working in different countries. Such is the effect of globalization --> superior organizations manned by competent international workers, able to produce more goods and services in a more efficient manner!
The question is when. Nations still go to war because of boundaries, beliefs, etc. That thing will start when people have no more implicit biases, on national boundaries and protectionist rules!

Not true. We are practically at full employment today. Declining birth rates mean we will NOT have enough people to replace those who will retire.

This is what is going to destroy China 10-20 years from now.

Not that a China decline would benefit us greatly! I would imagine countries around the world being sad those cheapoo gadgets vanish from the market stalls. Also, I think nobody is unexpendable in the world market. If China experiences a slump, other countries might come up and fill the gap. One man's loss is another man's gain, they say!

Just make a simple survey among your friends or neighborhood if what you said that we are in "full employment" is true. That is an exaggerated statement. Probably all the people you know have jobs and are not suffering from the lack of work or the lack of food. Go to the provinces, and see if people there are in full employment.
They will just move to SEA, like many are today, because of the anger towards them for starting the pandemic.
