FO: Social Weather Indicators

In a few hours, President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo will be delivering her sixth State of the Nation Address (SONA) on a literally stormy day. You may wish to monitor developments through the new INQ7.net page devoted to the SONA (I linked to the old one last year) or watch it on GMANews.TV.

This post, however, will be about the social weather indicators monitored by the Social Weather Stations (SWS) since 1983. These include:

The graph below shows that the current president's net satisfaction ratings have been less than satisfactory compared with all previous presidents since 1986. And since all the other indicators are shown in connection with the sitting president, there is a strong temptation to come up with cause-and-effect relationships, which may or may not be the case. More data that can (in)validate hypotheses are available at the SWS Survey Data Library.

PulseAsia also makes highlights of its Ulat ng Bayan Survey available online, but not in a way that makes it possible to compare data across decades or presidencies.
