HIGHLIGHTS OF THE JULY 2014
LABOR FORCE SURVEY

More persons entered/re-entered the labor market in July 2014

        The country’s labor force grew by 2.2% (+879,000) to reach 41.230 million. The slight increase in labor force was due mainly to higher participation rates among female workforce (50.5% from 49.7%) and among persons in the prime working years aged 25 to 54 (77.5% from 76.8%). On the overall, labor force participation rate (LFPR) was up by 0.5 percentage point to 64.4%. (Table 5)

LABOR TURNOVER STATISTICS
(IN LARGE ENTERPRISES IN METRO MANILA)
FIRST QUARTER 2014

Labor Turnover
(Accessions vs. Separations)

  • Employment in large enterprises in Metro Manila was of little change in the first quarter of 2014. Employment growth was largely mixed across industries. Stronger hiring than separations occurred in administrative and support service activities; manufacturing; and agriculture, forestry and fishery. Meanwhile, weak hiring and more separations prevailed in construction; wholesale and retail trade; professional, scientific and technical activities; and mining and quarrying.


    Sluggish employment can be attributed to the lower economic growth rate registered in first quarter of the current year as compared a year ago - 5.6% and 7.7%, respectively.

TRENDS AND PROFILE
OF THE UNDEREMPLOYED 2006-2013
(FIRST OF A TWO-PART SERIES)

One in every five employed was underemployed

  • Underemployment level in the country was generally increasing by an average of 0.10% annually with its peak in 2012 for the period 2006 to 2013. The substantial number of underemployed, which range from 6.6 million to 7.5 million for the past eight years, indicates that jobs were not sufficient to provide the basic needs of the employed persons and their families. (Figure 1)
  • Underemployment rates for the period covered were estimated at 18.8% to 22.6% or about one underemployed for every five employed. Underemployment rate, which had its highest point in 2006, was fluctuating but decelerating minimally by 0.5 percentage point yearly, on the average. (Table 1B)
