SWS: Only 6% of Filipinos fulfilled ‘all’ New Year’s resolutions
New Year’s Day wouldn’t be complete for most without coming up with the traditional New Year’s resolutions. Fulfilling them, however, is a different matter.
This as only 6% of Filipinos said they fulfilled all the New Year’s resolutions they promised for 2017, according to a Social Weather Stations (SWS) survey.
In its study done from December 8 to 16, the SWS said about 46% answered in the affirmative when asked if they came up with a list they wanted to do or change as they welcomed 2017.
However, only 6% said “all or almost all” of the resolutions have been fulfilled, 12% said “most” of them were achieved, 23% said “a few,” while 4% said “almost none or none,” according to the SWS.
Those who fulfilled “all, almost all, or most” of their resolutions were highest among classes ABC at 25%, followed by class E at 19%, and class D at 18%.
The proportion was also highest among college graduates at 26%, followed by high school graduates at 20%, elementary school graduates at 16%, and non-elementary school graduates at 14%.
SWS said the survey was conducted using face-to-face interviews with 1,200 adults nationwide, with 300 each in Metro Manila, Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao.
The survey has a margin of error of ±3% nationwide, ±4% for Luzon, and ±6% each for Metro Manila, Visayas and Mindanao, the SWS said. /cbb
