The team was led by Ms. Amy G. Romero, a consultant of Profiles Asia Pacific, Inc./John F. Kennedy Foundation, Inc. which was commissioned by the National Youth Commission to conduct the study.
According to Romero, the research work was done for the purpose of compiling accurate data and information on the social and economic characteristics of the Filipino youth.
The data will be used as basis for government policy formulation and for planning programs and projects that will be relevant to the needs and aspirations of the young people aged 15 to 30 belonging to the following youth sectors: in-school, out-of-school, working and specific needs groups.
The research involved the use of survey questionnaire, focused group discussion and interview of service providers.
The study includes an assessment of the indices affecting the youth including education, employment, family income and food expenditure, health, environment, leisure and participation.
