IBON SURVEY
8 OUT OF 10 FILIPINOS DOUBT GOVERNMENT’S CLAIM OF
IMPROVING ECONOMY

As Malacañang continues to hype the country’s economic gains, most respondents to the latest IBON nationwide survey remain doubtful of this claim.

Asked if they believe there is truth to the government’s pronouncement that the economy has improved, 79.7% of the 1,503 respondents said no. This is an increase from the 75.4% share in the October 2007 survey round.

The January 2008 IBON survey was conducted across various sectors nationwide from January 7 to 14. The survey had a margin of error of plus or minus three percent. (end)

Below is the tabulation of results of respondents’ perception of government’s pronouncement of an improving economy.  

In your opinion, is there truth to the government’s pronouncement that the economy has improved?

    […] This country is in the middle of a chain of stinking crises and despite massive media campaign on the blatant lie called “Dama ko ang pag-asenso (I can feel the progess),” dressing up its outer visage would not help a bit. That blatant lie alone cost millions but the true score was not addressed, let alone any positive outcome on the ad achieved. Eight out of 10 Filipinos doubt government claim of improving economy.
