Hi, I would like to request for the number and/or percentage of the Philippine population living in coastal areas. 

The last mention of this data that I could find was in the Compendium of Basic ENR Statistics for Operations and Management
(2000-2008) which stated that 62% of the population was living in coastal zones. Is there a more updated figure for this
