Philippine Performance Report

Philippine Performance Reports are papers the purpose of which is to give quick analysis of the performance (e.g., score, rank) of the Philippines in economic reports or indices that are regularly published, whether the publication has local origins or produced outside the Philippines. The scope of the analysis extends into the breadth of indicators that relate to labor and employment. The objective of the analysis is to determine the indicators that signal progress or deficits in achieving decent work outcomes. ILS intends the analysis to guide DOLE in identifying areas of program priorities or policy enhancements to sustain progress or narrow deficits in decent work.

The intended primary user of PPR is the Secretary of Labor and Employment and senior officials or bureau directors.

In 2014, ILS released Philippine Performance Reports covering the following indices and economic reports: 2014 SWS Survey on Adult Joblessness; Global Competitiveness Report 2014-2015; Global Employment Trends 2014; ASEAN Community 2015: Managing Integration for Better Jobs and Shared Prosperity ; Philippine Economic Update 2014; Quality of Life and State of National Economy; World Competitiveness Yearbook 2014; Index of Economic Freedom 2014; 2014 Trafficking in Persons Report; Social Progress Index 2014; 2013 Human Development Report
