Overseas Employment Statistics (Compendium)

Requested from POEA by Gerald Baldivia at 07:26 PM on Apr 22, 2020.
Purpose: Research
Date of Coverage: 01/01/2017 - 12/31/2019
Tracking no: #POEA-856918604223

Gerald 07:26 PM, Apr 22, 2020

Sir / Madam:

We request from POEA the publication of the annual Overseas Employment Statistics for 2017-19, as these have not yet been uploaded on POEA's website.

Some of the data needed include, but are not limited to, the tables for (1) Deployed Land-Based OFWs by Top 10 Skills and (2) Deployed Seafarers by Major Category.

Note that the 2017-18 total seafarer deployment figures were disclosed to media over a year ago.  If totals exist, then so must their breakdowns.  There seems little reason to withhold OESs from the rest of the public or justify further delay.

Thank you and regards.
