on the day of arroyo’s SONA 2009 – SWS survey release – hunger rose, 3 points to all time record high hunger

on the day that president gloria macapagal arroyo delivered her  SONA 2009, her last SONA, the SWS releases new and most recent data on their hunger survey.

it is ironic on the day the president talked about glowing achievements in the economy and welfare of the people, the people themselves spoke and said hunger rose to 20.3%, just 3 points lower than all time record high or 3.7 million families.

we can just connect the dots.

 

27 July 2009

Second Quarter 2009 Social Weather Survey:
Hunger rises to 20.3% of families;
Moderate Hunger is 16.0%, Severe Hunger is 4.3%

Social Weather Stations

The Second Quarter 2009 Social Weather Survey, fielded over June 19-22, 2009, found the proportion of families experiencing involuntary hunger at least once in the past three months rising to 20.3% or an estimated 3.7 million families, from 15.5% or an estimated 2.9 million families in the previous quarter.

The new Hunger figure is just 3 points lower than the record-high 23.7% (or estimated 4.3 million families) in December 2008, and is 8 points above the ten-year average of 12.8% [Chart 1, Table 1].

Hunger has consistently been in double-digits for five years, since June 2004.

The SWS measure of Hunger refers to involuntary suffering because the respondents answer a survey question that specifies hunger due to lack of anything to eat.
