This research, which has been commissioned by the Asian Development Bank (ADB) is to assess the feasibility, and potentially develop, a statistical profiling model for unemployed persons in the Philippines. The development and adoption of a profiling tool would potentially assist Public Employment Services (PES) in the Philippines in improving the administration and effectiveness of their labour market activation programmes.  The research builds on the PEX statistical profiling tool that was developed by the Economic and Social Research Institute (ESRI) and is currently implemented by the Department of Social Protection (DSP).
