Female OFWs Statistics

Requested from PSA by Joanna Lyn Rodriguez at 04:49 PM on Jul 19, 2020.
Purpose: Research
Date of Coverage: 09/01/2015 - 07/19/2020
Tracking no: #PSA-951557890057

Joanna Lyn 04:49 PM, Jul 19, 2020

Hi. I came across PSA's 2019 Survey on Overseas Filipinos and I would like to further inquire on some specific data needs such as the educational attainment of the female OFWs prior to migration and their major countries of destination. May I also ask for the specific occupations that these female OFWs belonged to. Based on the Survey 62.5% of female OFWs belonged to elementary occupations, 17.7% are service and sales workers, 9.8 % are professional, and so on. Can you give specific examples of the occupations belonging to these categories?

Thank you very much.
