This data collection is the second round in a series of surveys (begun in 1996) of Filipino youth. Six surveys were implemented in November 1997 throughout the Philippines, and this data collection consists of four parts for each of the six surveys administered. In particular, this data collection (1) allows comparison with youth issues and concerns asked about in the 1996 set of surveys, (2) monitors new youth issues and concerns that might have appeared since 1996, and (3) provides a picture of special youth groups in other parts of the Philippines outside of the National Capital Region (NCR). Respondents were queried about such topics as needs and aspirations, education, employment, satisfaction on certain aspects of life, activities and involvement, experience of discrimination, and religiosity. Further questions covered mass media, exposure to mass media, role models, the youth legislature known as Sangguniang Kabataan (SK), government programs and policies, and their experiences with sexual, illegal, and socially undesirable activities. Economic indicators and sociodemographic characteristics were also collected.
