Good day!
I am Ar. Robert Malayao from the Department of Architecture of the University of San Carlos. I am currently conducting a research to evaluate the working environment and conditions of the Architecture apprentices specifically for the graduates of the BS Architecture program of the University of San Carlos. In relation to this, I would like to request for the data on the cost of living for Metro Cebu, Metro Davao and Northern Mindanao. This is so I can compare the allowances received by the apprentices with the cost of living in these areas.

Response to Request

Your FOI request is approved. Please be informed that while cost of living is one of the standards/criteria for minimum wage determination pursuant to Republic Act NO. 6727, we do not compute it. Instead, Regional Tripartite Wages and Productivity Boards refer to consumer price index, inflation, purchasing power, poverty threshold, and family income and expenditure as proxy indicators for cost of living.

Attached are relevant data from the Philippine Statistics Authority that you may want to refer to relative to your query.

Your right to request a review

If you are unhappy with this response to your FOI request, you may ask us to carry out an internal review of the response by writing to Executive Director Maria Criselda R. Sy.
