Forty-five percent of adult Filipinos believe their quality of life will improve in the year ahead, results of the latest Social Weather Stations (SWS) survey show.

Conducted from Sept. 29 to Oct. 2 among 1,500 respondents, the SWS poll also found 4 percent expecting the quality of their life to worsen in the next 12 months, while 39 percent said it will stay the same.

These resulted in a net personal optimism score of “excellent” +40 (optimists minus pessimists), slightly falling from +42 recorded in June.

The two-point decline in the national net personal optimism score was due to decreases in Luzon outside Metro Manila and Mindanao, combined with increases in Visayas and Metro Manila, SWS said.

Between June and October, net optimism went down from +50 to +42 in Luzon outside Metro Manila and from +39 to +34 in Mindanao. It rose from +43 to +50 in Metro Manila and from +27 to +36 in Visayas.

By educational attainment, net personal optimism was highest among college graduates at +57, followed by junior high school graduates at +44, elementary graduates at +33 and nonelementary graduates at +30.

The survey had a sampling margin of error of plus-or-minus 2.5 percent for national percentages and plus-or-minus 5.7 percent for Metro Manila, the Visayas, and Mindanao and plus-or-minus 4 percent for Luzon outside Metro Manila.
