Summary note
The Survey on Overseas Filipinos (SOF) is a nationwide survey that seeks to gather information on Filipino citizens including overseas workers who left abroad during the last five years. Data on their remittances as well as data for most part of this bulletin are gathered using the past six months reference period. The SOF is a rider survey to the October round of the Labor Force Survey every year. The overseas workers covered in this report are those who left for abroad to work during the period April 1 to September 30. Hence, these are only a portion of the totality of workers who are abroad during the period. The workers who are home on vacation from their jobs abroad who have left earlier than April 1 of the reference year are also included in said totality. The Survey of Overseas Filipinos does not ask for the total salary received by the OFWs. Hence, the remittance presented in the results may just be part of the total salary received by the OFWs.
