MANILA, Philippines—Satisfaction with the Aquino administration fell to +56 in September from +66 in June, as net satisfaction dipped across all areas and among classes D and E, according to the latest Social Weather Stations (SWS) survey.

The Third Quarter 2013 Social Weather Report results, conducted from Sept. 20 to 23 and first reported in BusinessWorld, found 71 percent satisfied and 15 percent dissatisfied with the government’s general performance, resulting in a “very good” rating of +56—down from a “very good” +66 (75 percent satisfied, 9 percent dissatisfied) in June, a record high.

The survey, which used face-to-face interviews with 1,200 adults nationwide, had a margin of error of plus or minus 3 percentage points.

The administration’s net ratings dipped across all areas: from a “very good” +53 in June to a “good” +45 in September in Metro Manila; from a “very good” +68 to a “very good” +59 in Luzon outside Metro Manila; from an “excellent” +76 to a “very good” +60 in the Visayas, and from a “very good” +63 to a “very good” +53 in Mindanao.

Its net satisfaction ratings also slipped among class D (from a “very good” +65 to a “very good” +56) and class E (from an “excellent” +71 to a “very good” +54). Among classes ABC, it moved from +61 to +62 between June and September, both “very good” ratings.

As satisfaction with the government’s general performance slipped, it scored “very good” ratings in terms of helping victims of disasters and the poor, as its ratings on issues about hunger, inflation and oil prices fell 10 points from “moderate” to “neutral” levels.

On specific issues, the government scored “very good” ratings on the following: helping victims of disasters (from +73 in August to +68 in September); providing basic elementary and high school education (from +58 in June to +67 in September); helping the poor (from +57 in June to +54 in September), and transparency in providing information about government activities (from +38 in March to +51 in September).

The government scored “good” ratings on six issues: defending the country’s territorial rights (from +45 in June to +49 in September); promoting the welfare of overseas Filipino workers (from +41 to +48); foreign relations (from +37 to +41); providing jobs (from +38 to +36); fighting crime (from +31 to +35), and fighting terrorism (from +36 to +35).

It scored “moderate” ratings on three issues: reconciliation with communist rebels (from +24 to +27); reconciliation with Muslim rebels (from +29 to +25); and eradicating graft and corruption (from +18 to +23).—Inquirer Research
