Request for Rural vs Urban and Income Class Classification Criteria in the Philippines

Requested from PSA by Princess Alyssa Abid at 06:40 PM on Apr 11, 2019.
Purpose: It is for my master's thesis where I need to pick rural and urban areas in Davao City.
Date of Coverage: 04/11/2019 - 04/11/2019
Tracking no: #PSA-147068658919

Hi! This is Princess Abid, an MS Biochemistry student from the University of the Philippines-Manila. I've seen in your online databases that you have classified barangays by rural or urban and I've also seen income class classifications. I need to pick rural and urban areas in Davao City but I can't see anywhere what your criteria are regarding this.  I understand that Davao City is classified as HUC but I will need specific barangays in the area to be defined as rural or urban. I would need to include in my manuscript what the criteria are as well as the income class criteria. Thank you.
