The survey done from September 15 to 23, 2018, showed that 61 percent said that the President’s “state of health is a public matter that is why the public should be informed of everything about this” while 33 percent believe that Duterte’s health condition “is a private matter that is why the public does not need to be informed of everything about this.”

SWS said that they presented respondents with the question: Alin sa dalawang pangungusap na ito ang pinakamalapit sa inyong opinyon tungkol sa lagay ng kalusugan ni Pang. Duterte?: Ang lagay ng kalusugan ni Pang. Duterte ay pampublikong paksa kung kaya’t dapat ipaalam sa mamamayan ang lahat ng bagay tungkol dito; ang lagay ng kalusugan ni Pang. Duterte ay pribadong paksa kung kaya’t hindi kailangang ipaalam sa mamamayan ang lahat ng bagay tungkol dito; walang sapat na kaalaman upang makapagbigay ng opinyon)
