Sur­vey: Gov’t ser­vices mod­er­ately ac­ces­si­ble

Sun.Star Davao - - TOP STORIES -

BASED on the re­cent sur­vey con­ducted by the In­sti­tute of Pop­u­lar Opin­ion (IPO), the over­all assess­ment on gov­ern­ment ser­vices as men­tioned by Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte-Car­pio dur­ing her Sate of the City Ad­dress (Soca) is mod­er­ately ac­ces­si­ble as it in­cludes the most pop­u­lar Lin­gap sa Mahi­rap pro­gram.

Speak­ing dur­ing yes­ter­day’s Kape­han Sa Dabaw at The An­nex of SM City Davao, Univer­sity of Min­danao (UM) statis­ti­cian John Vianne Mur­cia told re­porters that they con­ducted the sur­vey last Oc­to­ber 11 to Oc­to­ber 21 wherein 1,200 Dabawenyos were ran­domly se­lected us­ing a five per­cent mar­gin of er­ror and 95 per­cent con­fi­dence level and a multi-stage sam­pling.

The sur­vey ques­tion­naire was based on the pro­grams and ser­vices men­tioned by the mayor dur­ing her Soca last Septem­ber and they asked the Dabawenyos on the de­gree of aware­ness and

their knowl­edge of these ser­vices.

“We ask Dabawenyos how aware and how they were able to ac­cess in the scale of 1 to 10 [10 is the high­est] and it’s so hap­pened that the over­all assess­ment in terms of aware­ness is mod­er­ately ac­ces­si­ble which means there are items or projects con­ducted in the city that are highly ac­ces­si­ble but there are also item that are not that ac­ces­si­ble,” Mur­cia said.

The re­sult showed that the pub­lic’s level of aware­ness in gov­ern­ment ser­vices is mod­er­ate (5.16 per­cent) while per­ceived ac­ces­si­bil­ity to these ser­vices and pro­grams is deemed to be low (3.93). The se­lected projects and ser­vices were found to be rel­e­vant and near the peo­ple’s im­pres­sions. AP
