This report contains the findings of an interdisciplinary study of the social, political, and economic state of the Philippine nation. It covers interactions among political perceptions, voting behavior, and economic growth, as well as the problems of crime and dissidence. Survey data and aggregate data are applied jointly to all of these subject areas. The aim is twofold: to provide as comprehensive and detailed a portrait as possible of the Philippine social system and the actors involved in it, and to pinpoint uncertainties in the information used for decisionmaking by the Philippine government and U.S. agencies.
