Published By: ADBI on eSS | Published Date: September, 21 , 2005

The population and poverty nexus is not new but remains an important development issue for many countries. Recent research has added the crucial dimension of vulnerability to poverty to the debate on the determinants of the welfare status of a population. But the issue of vulnerability has hardly been dealt with using Philippine data. This paper, therefore, draws together recent results using household survey data regarding the impact of family size on various aspects of family welfare in the Philippines.
