Your request

You requested for information on: (1) Number of Abandoned and Neglected Children in the National Capital Region (per city).

Response to your request

The DSWD only has limited information on number (1), specifically only to those abandoned and neglected children residing in its centers and institutions. 

Thus, we shall partially grant your request and we shall refer your request with respect to this matter to the proper DSWD office.

Under Republic Act 10625 (the “Philippine Statistical Act of 2013”), the Philippine Statistics Authority is the government agency responsible for preparing and conducting periodic censuses on population, housing, agriculture, fisheries, business, industry and other sectors of the economy. The PSA may have the complete data for number (1). Hence, you may wish to direct your request to the PSA by submitting a request to the PSA via this portal. You may also contact the PSA by telephone at 462-6600 locals 839, 833 and 834 or via email at info@psa.gov.ph.
