  • Temporary Crops - crops which are grown seasonally and whose growing cycle is less than one year and which must be sown or planted again for production after each harvest.Permanent Crops - crops which occupy the land for a long period of time and do not need to be replaced after each harvest such as fruit trees, shrubs, nuts, etc.  These crops may be productive, which have already borne fruits or capable of bearing fruits or non-productive.The increase in coconut production by 1.74 was mainly due to the increase of number of trees harvested in Zamboanga del Norte The 11.86 percent increase in abaca production was partly attributable to the stripping machines provided by the Fiber Industry Development Authority (FIDA) in some provinces which encouraged the farmers to produce more. The 2.92 percent increase in banana production was due to the increase of tree bearing fruits in Zamboanga del Norte. The increase of 8.28 percent in mango was likewise due to the increase in trees induced due to demand in Zamboanga del Norte.

    22. 22. Statistics<br />
    23. 23. Agriculture and Fisheries<br />
    24. 24. Agriculture and Fisheries<br />Total agricultural land area comprised almost half (45.2%) of the entire land area.<br />Due to the increase in the no. of farms and area planted over 1991 estimates, the average farm size increased from 2.87 ha. (per farm) to 3.11 ha. in 2002.<br />Area harvested likewise increased by 5.8%.<br />ZAMBOANGA DEL NORTE has the highest number of farms.<br />The total farms for the province accounted for 41.2 % of the total farms in the region.<br />
    25. 25. Agriculture and Fisheries<br />The number and size of farms in each province increased in the span of a decade, implying greater efficiency, growth and reliance on the agricultural sector within the region, despite ongoing commercialization.<br />This was achieved through the Dept. of Agriculture’s interventions such as the distribution of organic fertilizers in Zamboanga del Sur.<br />
    26. 26. Agriculture and Fisheries<br /><ul><li>PALAY is the major temporary crop in the region. Total palay production increased by 2.62%.
    27. 27. COCONUT is the dominant permanent crop.
    28. 28. All provinces have the same top three crops namely, COCONUT, RUBBER & BANANA both in 2002 and 1991.</li></li></ul><li>Agriculture and Fisheries<br /><ul><li>Zamboanga City showed the highest improvement in palayproduction.
    29. 29. Yet, Zamboangadel Sur had the highest production during the year.</li></li></ul><li>Agriculture and Fisheries<br /><ul><li>Top Crops: Coconut, banana and rubber</li></li></ul><li>Agriculture and Fisheries<br />Individual system of irrigation is common in the region. Farms planted with temporary crops benefited most from these irrigation facilities.<br />Hog raising dominated the livestock raising activity. (But considerably less than in 1991)<br />
    30. 30. Agriculture and Fisheries<br />Raising of chicken is the primary poultry raising activity. (Zamboanga del Sur contributed most.)<br />Other agricultural activities:<br /><ul><li>Ornamental & flower gardening (excluding orchid) are more common.
    31. 31. High percentage increases in mushroom culture & sericulture/silk/cocoon activity</li></li></ul><li>Agriculture and Fisheries<br />Male operators dominated the agricultural operation. (30-54 age group)<br /><ul><li>Implies that gender stereotypes persist within this region.</li></ul>Majority of the household members engaged in agricultural activity were working in their own holding.<br />
    32. 32. Agriculture and Fisheries<br />Coastline is about 43% of Mindanao's total coastline. <br />Major sea products include tuna, herring sardines, anchovies and mackerel. Shrimps, prawns, lobsters, crabs, squid and cuttlefish also abound.<br />Zamboanga City Special Economic Zone and Freeport Authority (ZamboEcozone)<br /><ul><li>Only freeport in Visayas & Mindanao</li></li></ul><li>Agriculture and Fisheries<br />Summary of Aquaculture Production by Culture Environment & Region, 2009<br />247,634 metric tons<br />21,650 metric tons<br />2,477,392 metric tons<br />
    33. 33. Agriculture and Fisheries<br />Zamboanga City showed a large increase in fishery production, which offset the declines in other provinces.<br />Region 9 makes up 10% of aquaculture production in the country. (2nd among regions)<br /><ul><li>Total Aquaculture (Philippines): 2,477,392
    34. 34. Total Aquaculture (Region 9): 247,634</li></li></ul><li>Agriculture and Fisheries<br />#1 in Commercial Fish Production: 357,124.70 mt.<br />SARDINES CAPITALof the Philippines<br /><ul><li>i.e. With companies such as Mega Fishing Corporation based in the region</li></ul>Supplies 70% of the Philippine domestic requirements for DRIED FISH<br /><ul><li>Total of 104 big dried fish processors in the region</li></li></ul><li>Agriculture and Fisheries<br />Dipolog City in Zamboanga del Norte is renowned for pioneering the production of in-glass or bottled sardines in the country.<br />Region 9 ranks third in terms of seaweeds production contributing roughly 12% of the total national output.<br />
    35. 35. Business and Industry<br />
    36. 36. Business and Industry<br />Wholesale & Retail Trade - Most number of establishments & highest employment total (1994)<br /><ul><li>Mirrors most regions in the Philippines</li></ul>Mining & Quarrying – least<br /><ul><li>Recently, was petitioned against by many NGO’s.</li></li></ul><li>Business and Industry<br />Year 2000’s: Similar scenario as in 1994<br />
    37. 37. Business and Industry<br />Distribution of Establishments by Region & Firm Size (2009)<br />7th lowest (among regions) – number of business establishments<br />
    38. 38. Business and Industry<br />While it fares better than other poorer regions, it still seems to lack economic and industrial growth, comparable to more developed areas.<br />
    39. 39. Business and Industry<br />Zamboanga City registered the most number of business names at 34% - implying it has more business opportunities <br />
    40. 40. Business and Industry<br />ZAMBOANGA FREEPORT AUTHORITY (Zamboanga City Special Economic Zone Authority) - Conceptualized to be an economic hub that is designed to generate local economic activities that will serve as a springboard for the promotion of trade, investments, and ecology tourism not only in Zamboanga City but also throughout the region.<br />
    41. 41. Construction & Housing<br />
    42. 42. Construction and Housing<br />Majority of construction projects are for residential purposes.<br />Directly related to small number of business establishments.<br />Also directly contributing to pace of region’s economic growth.<br />
    43. 43. Construction and Housing<br />Total number of building construction projects in Zamboanga Peninsula was recorded at 327 units or valued at Php234,695,000 in the third quarter of 2010. <br />Among the provinces, Zamboanga del Norte was noted to have the most number of building constructions which was recorded at 272 units, followed by Zamboanga del Sur and Isabela City at 53 and 2 units, respectively.<br />
    44. 44. Construction and Housing<br />The region spends 9.6% of total family expenditures on housing – only a percentage higher than the even poorer regions of CARAGA and SOCCSKSARGEN.<br />
    45. 45. Education & Mass Media<br />
    46. 46. Education and Mass Media<br />A functionally literate person can read, write and compute and/or comprehend. <br /><ul><li>Persons who completed high school or a higher level of education are also considered functionally literate.</li></ul>In 1994, the highest proportion of out-of-school youth (OSY) was observed in the ZamboangaPeninsula (18.7 %).<br />More OSYs in the rural areas noted – Financial capacity is more likely prioritized.<br />
    47. 47. Education and Mass Media<br />Basic literacy is somewhat at par with other regions. <br />But relatively lower functional literacy rates compared to others<br />
    48. 48. Education and Mass Media<br />In 2003, female functional literacy rate (70.8%) was higher than the males’ (69.8%) – Men are likely compelled to work, rather than attend school.<br />Those of ages 15 to 29 years old have a relatively higher functional literacy rate in the region. (2003) – Mostly high school and college students are included in this range.<br />
    49. 49. Education and Mass Media<br />A large percentage of the population only completed until the elementary level.<br />Also emphasizing probably substandard education or lack of financing in the region.<br />
    50. 50. Education and Mass Media<br />Reasons for Not Attending School<br />Factors contributing to these negative indicators were the increasing cost of education and the demands for the students to provide extra hand in the farm especially during planting and harvesting time for those living in the rural areas.<br />
    51. 51. Education and Mass Media<br />Isabela City reported a very ideal ratio of 1:21 for both school years in the elementary, while Dapitan City led in the secondary level for a ratio of 1:29. <br />
    52. 52. Education and Mass Media<br />
    53. 53. Education and Mass Media<br />The number of graduates in 2009 sharply decreased as compared to the reported number in 2008. A total of 9,279 college students graduated in 2009 as against 14,506 in 2008 or down by 36.0%<br />
    54. 54. Education and Mass Media<br />Proportion of Households by Ownership of Radio, TV, VCR & PC<br />Most households prefer owning a radio in this region. (1994) Similar data for urban and rural households.<br />This kind of medium is also the most relied on for information on current events/issues.<br />Portable and less expensive, especially when living circumstances are considered.<br />
    55. 55. Energy<br />
    56. 56. Energy<br />In 1995, kerosene and electricity were the most widely used types of fuel. – Kerosene is usually employed in the fishing industry, which co-dominates the region’s economic activities.<br />
    57. 57. Energy<br />In 1995, fuelwoodwas the most widely consumed, especially for cooking and food preparation. – Electricity may not have been accessible to everyone yet.<br />
    58. 58. Energy<br />Region 9 Power Demand (2009)<br />Zamboanga City led among the other electric cooperatives in terms of power demand with 85,084 KW<br />ZANECO – Zamboanga del Norte Electric Cooperative<br />ZAMBSURECO I - Zamboanga del Sur Electric Cooperative<br />ZAMSURECO II - Zamboanga del Sur II Electric Cooperative (ZamboangaSibugay)<br />ZAMCELCO -  Zamboanga City Electric Cooperative<br />PNOC-MCC – PhilippineNational Oil Company – Malangas Coal Corporation<br />
    59. 59. Energy<br />Region 9 Power Consumption (2009)<br />Residential consumer remained the largest user of electricity with 337,491,012 kw used or around 45.35% share<br />BASELCO - Basilan Electric Cooperative<br />
    60. 60. Energy<br />Number of Energized Barangays (2009)<br />As of December 2009, the region has an energization rate of 99.86% for barangays with only three (3) barangays not energized, one each in ZANECO, ZAMSURECO I and ZAMSURECO II.<br />
    61. 61. Energy<br />Number of Energized Households (2009)<br />On the other hand, energization rate for households is at 57.62% only.<br />BASELCO was far behind its target.<br />
    62. 62. Health<br />
    63. 63. Health<br />Crude Birth Rates (2008)<br />Isabela City listed the highest birth rate.<br />94.51% of total births, weighed more than 2,500 grams, which is considered the weight of a healthy new born baby. <br />
    64. 64. Health<br />Life Expectance at Birth by Sex (2005-2010)<br />Relatively low life expectancy in the region.<br />Especially for males<br />
    65. 65. Health<br />Leading Causes of Morbidity (2008)<br /> In 2008, there were 385,424 persons who received medical treatment from the health care facilities due to illnesses or a morbidity rate of 11,710.21 per 100,000 population. <br />Leading Cause: Acute Respiratory Infection (ARI)/Upper Respiratory Tract Infection (URTI) or (tonsillitis, pharyngitis, laryngitis, sinusitis, otitis media, and the common cold)<br />
    66. 66. Health<br />Leading Causes of Mortality (2008)<br /> A total of 11,860 deaths were reported in 2008, of which, pneumoniatopped the list of leading causes of deaths. <br />Implies possibly poor provision of health services, lack of education and unsanitary environments<br />
    67. 67. Health<br />MATERNAL MORTALITY<br />In 2008, a total of 63 mothers were reported dead in before, during and after delivery or 91.56% per 100,000 live births from all causes. <br />Eclampsia topped the list of the 10 leading causes of maternal deaths.<br />The program on Pre-Natal and Post-Natal Care is meant to address the problems of maternal mortality, however, with the report of maternal deaths, this implies the need for an intensive campaign on the program.<br />
    68. 68. Health<br />INFANT MORTALITY<br />The number of infant deaths in 2008 was reported at 564, registering an 8.2% infant mortality rate per 100,000 live births from all causes. The #1 cause of infant deaths was pneumonia with 120 deaths.<br />Children who died young were not able to receive complete & timely immunization.<br />Lack of implementation: DOH’s Expanded Program on Immunization (EPI)<br />
    69. 69. Health<br />Health Manpower<br />There is a need for additional nurses (49), nutritionists (153) &sanitary inspectors (23) in order to satisfactorily meet the demand of the population.<br />
    70. 70. Health<br />Hospital Bed Capacity<br />The total hospital bed capacity was 2,681(1 bed:1,228 patients), short by 228, following the government standard ratio of 1:1,000. <br />However, the four cities of Dipolog, Pagadian, Isabelaand Zamboanga had enough hospital beds to meet the government standard ratio. <br />
    71. 71. Health<br />ACCESS TO QUALITY HEALTH CARE<br />The decrease in the number of hospitals was due to closure of private hospitals as a result of absence of doctors and financial problems for family-owned hospitals. <br />An increase of 26 accredited RHUs was reported in 2009 as a result of the expansion of membership enrolment under the Sponsored Program <br />
    72. 72. Health<br />Prevalence of Malnutrition among School Children<br />The number of underweight school children was still pronounced in 2009, although a reduction in the prevalence rate was noted in the region.<br />
    73. 73. Income and Poverty<br />
    74. 74. Income and Poverty<br />Poverty Data<br />Poverty incidence of families (or proportion of families with per capita income falling below the annual per capita poverty threshold) in Zamboanga Peninsula accelerated by 2.4% from 34.2% in 2006 to 36.6% in 2009 with a magnitude of poor families of 224,378 in 2006 and 242,285 in 2009.<br />
    75. 75. Income and Poverty<br />Annual Per Capita Poverty Threshold, Poverty Incidence<br />Increase in Annual Per Capita Poverty Threshold<br />Increase in poverty incidence<br />
    76. 76. Income and Poverty<br />Number of Families and Family Receipts by Income Decile<br />Large percentage of income came from entrepreneurial activities. (Not from wages and salaries)<br />Other sources of income came in 2nd – possibly under-the-table dealings<br />
    77. 77. Income and Poverty<br />Average Annual Family Income (‘03 & ‘06)<br />Relatively low average annual family income – further indicating the high poverty incidence in the region<br />
    78. 78. Income and Poverty<br />Annual average family income, expenditure & saving all increased.<br />Yet, the magnitude of poor families in Zamboanga del Norte increased by about 8.1%<br />Zamboanga del Sur’s and ZamboangaSibugay’spoverty incidence accelerated by about 2.3% and 9.1%, respectively.<br />
    79. 79. Income and Poverty<br />GROSS REGIONAL DOMESTIC PRODUCT(GRDP)<br />GRDP of Region 9 increased by 7.5% or by 13,064,995 between 2008-2009.<br />

    81. 81. Income and Poverty<br />Probable Causes of High Poverty Incidence…<br />Lack of livelihood opportunities<br />Illiteracy or lack of education<br />Government inefficiency<br />Inequality in the distribution of wealth and access to resources<br />Peace and order situation<br />Failure to gain access to credit, technological and market information and other services.<br />IRONICALLY…<br />Zamboanga Peninsula economy improves as AFF accelerates<br />Strong performance of the Agriculture, Forestry & Fishery (AFF) sector <br />Economyof the region posted an accelerationof 6.8% in 2009 from 2.0% in 2008.<br />
    82. 82. Labor and Employment<br />
    83. 83. Labor and Employment<br />Very slight increase in the unemployment rate during the 1st quarter of 2011<br />Considerable increase in overseas employment from ‘07-’08<br />
    84. 84. Labor and Employment<br />
    85. 85. Labor and Employment<br />Among all regions, Zamboanga Peninsula recorded the 3rd highest employment rate in 2009 at 96.4%.<br />While underemployment rate decreased slightly from 23.7% to 23.6%, the region stayed higher than the national average of 19.1% and maintained its position with the 7th highest underemployment rate in the country. (2008-2009)<br />Labor force participation rate (LFPR) increasedfrom 65.7% to 66.8%, which is again higher than the national average of 64%. (2008-2009)<br />
    86. 86. Labor and Employment<br />Agriculture accounts for about 50% of employment in Region 9. <br />Except for Zamboanga City, wherein employment is heavily concentrated in the Services Sector <br />Major concentration of employment for the rest of the provinces is in agriculture. <br />45.5% are Own-Account Workers, in which 38.2% comprise self-employed persons and 7.32 are employers. <br />Wage and Salaried Workers comprise 36.5% of those employed, and more than 18% are Unpaid Family Workers. <br />
    87. 87. Population & Demography<br />
    88. 88. Population and Demography<br />In the latest census count of 2007, the total population of Region 9 reached 3.230 million, up from 2.831 million recorded in census year 2000. <br />Yearly average increase of 57,000 people<br />Region IX accounts for 15% of Mindanao’s population and about 3.6% of the national population of 88.6 million. <br />1.83% average annual growth rate <br />Population will reach 3.487 million in 2010 and 4.205 million by 2020. <br />
    89. 89. Population and Demography<br />4th smallest region in terms of population in the Philippines<br />Average of 5.0 persons per household – higher than country’s average of 4.8<br />Dependency ratio is 70.5% - higher than country’s 66%<br />
    90. 90. Population and Demography<br />Average Annual Growth Rates of Region 9 is DECELERATING.<br />Although the region has the 6th fastest growth rate among all regions.<br />
    91. 91. Population and Demography<br />Census Population by Province and City<br />Zamboanga City has the largest and fastest growing pop’n. (3.54% annually)<br />Compared to nat’laverage, Region 9’s pop’ngrowth rate is slower at 1.83% from 2000 - 2007<br />
    92. 92. Population and Demography<br />Population density significantly increased from 179 persons per sq/km in 1995 to 225 persons per sq/km in 2007<br />IsabelaCity is the most densely populated city in the region owing to its small area (93 versus total pop’n.<br />
    93. 93. Population and Demography<br />If the pace of population growth continues, the region will be denser 294 persons/ in the year 2020.<br />This will put pressure on the region’s natural resources and delivery of basic services.<br />
    94. 94. Population and Demography<br />More people reside in rural areas.<br />There are slightly more males than females.<br />People with ages 15-64 years old comprised a larger percentage of the population.<br />
    95. 95. Prices<br />
    96. 96. Prices<br />Consumer Price Index (CPI) is an indicator of the change in the average prices of a fixed basket of goods and services commonly purchased by an average Filipino household relative to 2000 as base year. <br />Significant increases in the CPI and the inflation rate between June 2010 and 2011.<br />The Zamboanga Peninsula inflation rate in June  2011 slightly accelerated to 6.4 percent from  6.2 percent in May 2011.<br />
    97. 97. Prices<br />Food, beverages and tobacco group of commodities posted the highest inflation rate <br />The absence of sharp surges in oil prices and expected favorable agricultural output helped stabilize consumer prices of Food Items.<br />
    98. 98. Prices<br />Regional inflation rates are relatively lower compared to the entire national average inflation rate.<br />Significant increase in inflation rates between August 2009 and 2010.<br />
