observable and verifiable indicators of the family’s income such as access to
basic services and facilities (e.g., water and electricity), ownership of assets,
and materials used in the housing structure.
The estimated household income based on the PMT is compared to the
existing provincial threshold set by the Philippine Statistics Authority.
Households with income falling below the poverty threshold are considered
