Good day!

I'm a 3rd-year student from the University of Makati and currently processing a research study for the semester entitled “BUDGETING PRACTICES OF LOWER-MIDDLE INCOME HOUSEHOLDS IN DISTRICT II - MAKATI CITY IN THE NEW NORMAL”. 

In line with the aforementioned activity, I would like to ask if I can request to get a copy of the latest data of the Lower-middle Income Households Population in District II - Makati City for each barangay. This data will be used for research purposes only, specifically in getting the sample size.

Thank you very much.
