by Kobakila News

MANILA —  In the latest Social Weather Station survey, conducted during the period September 4 to 7, 68 percent of Filipinos are satisfied with the Aquino administration during the third quarter than the first two quarters of the year.  Also, 12 percent are dissatisfied and 19 percent are neither satisfied nor dissatisfied for a net satisfaction rating of +54.

This rating is higher than the +45 and +46 scores recorded last June and March but is lower than the +64 seen in September and November last year.

The survey also shows net satisfaction improvement in all socio-economic classes: Class ABC (+45 to +62); Class D (+48 to +57); and Class E (+36 to +52) during the period.  However, in Metro Manila, net satisfaction rating dropped, from +48 to +44 but improved in all other areas.

This survey also shows that more Filipinos were satisfied with the Aquino government’s response to eradicating graft and corruption (+27) and fighting crime (+25).  The government also received high satisfaction ratings in improving the quality of children’s education (+56), helping the poor (+50), foreign relations (+44), promoting welfare of overseas Filipino workers (+41), telling the truth (+37) and reconciliation with Muslim rebels (+34).

However, in so far as resolving the Maguindanao massacre, the government scored a poor -13 rating.

The survey, which was revealed October 17, was conducted and published exclusively by Businessworld.  It interviewed 1,200 respondents nationwide. Sampling error margins are ±3% for national percentages and ±6% for area percentages.
