More Pinoys see the glass as "half full"-at least that’s what a Social Weather Stations (SWS) survey says.

 

ABS-CBNNews.com reports that the latest SWS survey, which was conducted from June 3 to 6 this year, "utilized face-to-face interviews of 1,200 adults nationwide and sampling error margins of ±3% for national and ±6% for area percentages."

 

The survey’s results showed that 36 percent of respondents expect their lives would be better in the next 12 months, while only 9 percent claimed otherwise. Meanwhile, the report added: "The net personal optimism score of +27 was an improvement from the +24 in March, but still off the very high +35 recorded in November 2010."

 

As for the economy, 29 percent of the survey repondents think that things are looking up for the country while 16 percent think things will get worse.

 

ABS-CBNNews quoted Presidential Spokesperson Edwin Lacierda’s statement about the survey results:  "This latest snapshot of public opinion shows that government and the people are as one, in their positive attitude: based on the improved fiscal situation and policies conducive to inclusive growth of the administration."
