Survey on Overseas Filipinos

Survey on Overseas Filipinos (SOF) is designed to gather national estimates on the number of overseas workers, their socio economic characteristics and other information pertaining to the overseas workers who worked or have worked abroad for the specified reference period. The remittances of the Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs) in cash or in kind were also accounted for. The SOF data are useful inputs to government planners, migrant advocates, researchers, academes, concerned citizens, and other data users to the formulation of policies and programs for the welfare of the overseas Filipino.
