   The National Youth Commission (NYC) in partnership with the Provincial Government of Sarangani conducted the 2014 Youth Development Index Validation Workshop last April 29, 2014. The said activity presented the results of the Philippine Youth Development Index Study.

   Youth Development Index (YDI) aims to measure youth development in the areas of education, employment, health, and participation. The creation of the YDI for the Philippines can be expected to improve the planning and implementation of policies aimed at the youth. Moreover, the YDI can encourage data collection in the area of youth development. 

   The Institute for Development and Econometric Analysis (IDEA), Inc. is privileged to undertake this study, which was organized in six phases: (1) selection of indicators, (2) index formulation, (3) consultations, (4) data collection, (5) analysis, and (6) communication. 

The consultations were done last year in 9 provinces nationwide. The consultation workshop aims to get advice and guidance from stakeholders in the development of the PYDI alongside gathering of secondary data as instrument to gauge youth concerns such as but not limited to education; employment; participation; environment and health.

   Nine provinces were selected to pilot the YDI to represent the youth development status in the three major islands in the country for every top-middle-low rank clusters of 2009 provincial Human Development Index result. These provinces were Benguet, Bukidnon, Eastern Samar, Guimaras, Iloilo, La Union, Masbate, Misamis Oriental, and Sarangani.

The study recommends the following: 

  • It is recommended that institutional cooperation between the NYC and government agencies involved in producing youth development statistics be strengthened. This ensures the ease of retrieving statistics that are relevant in duplicating the YDI in coming years.
  • On growing the YDI, the development and the availability of some important youth health and youth participation indicators, preferably with sex and geographical disaggregation, would enhance the scope and relevance of the YDI.
  • It is intended that the use of the YDI be maximized, both for the areas of social research and policymaking. One way to support this is a continuing presentation of the results of the YDI to a broad cross-section of stakeholders, including producers and users of youth development statistics. Moreover, this can result in insightful feedback covering data, methodology, results and advocacy.
