Patricia 10:53 PM, Aug 06, 2020

Hi! I would like to request for statistics of marriages wherein one or both of the parties are minors. I am researching on the prevalence of child marriages in the Philippines, and the determination of adequacy of our current laws giving no legal effect to marriages contracted below 18 years old. 

I already made a request last July 2020, under tracking code #PSA-400843827605. However, I could not access the 2nd link given to me. I also would want to request for data since the year 2007 until the latest available data. Thanks
