The Iloilo results of the 2ndPhilCare Wellness Index willcertainly give us insight on how we can work towards optimal well-being forIlonggos,” he added. Lead researcher and University of thePhilippines associate professor Dr. Fernando Paragas said the PhilCare WellnessIndex, which measured the perceived health and wellness of Filipinos, wascomposed of six wellness domains, namely psychological, physical, medical,nutritional, financial, and lifestyle. WELLNESSLEADER IN THE VISAYAS Most other Filipinos, meanwhile, drink atleast two bottles a week. Iloilo topped the medical wellness domainnationwide with a score of 2.61 or “good,” followed by Bacolod (2.84), Legazpi(2.97), Cebu (3.12), San Fernando City, La Union (3.16), and Pili, CamarinesSur (3.16), all of which were “somewhat good.” Ilonggos smoked two sticks of cigarettes aday, more than Bacolodnons (at least 1.5 sticks a day), Cebuanos (one stick perday), and Tagbilaranons (at least one stick per day). MOSTPREPARED FOR MEDICAL EMERGENCIES, BUT MOST STRESSED IN PH Iloilo scored 2.64 or “good,” besting Bacolod(2.84), Cebu (3.20), Tagbilaran (3.25), and even most other Filipinos (3.13)whose nutritional wellness is said to be “somewhat good.” With Ilonggos faring well in almost allwellness domains, their composite score was “good,” with a score of 2.65,better than the “somewhat good” rating for Bacolod (2.86), Cebu (3.15),Tagbilaran (3.18), and the nationwide average (3.24). They indicated having “good” psychologicalwellness, scoring 2.63 on the Wellness Index scale. This is better than that ofBacolod (2.87), Cebu (3.12) and Tagbilaran (3.10), all of which were “somewhatgood.” center_img Iloilo scored 2.61 or “good,” beating Bacolod(2.85), Cebu (3.20), Tagbilaran (3.22), and even the nationwide average (3.42),all of which are “somewhat good.” Ilonggos, together with Bacolodnons, consumedthe most alcohol in the Visayas at two bottles a week, more than Cebuanos(almost two bottles a week) and Tagbilaranons (1.75 bottles a week). Most other Filipinos also signified having“good’ psychological wellness, with a score of 2.71. Ilonggos likewise said they were the mostcontented and that they had the most purposeful and most meaningful lives amongVisayan respondents. VICES Iloilo also beat the nationwide score of 3.12,also classified as “somewhat good.” Ilonggos topped the lifestyle wellness domainwith a score of 2.65 or “good.” This meant they had the most time forrecreational activities, the best work-family balance, and the most sufficientrest among Visayans compared to their Bacolod (2.88), Cebu (3.19) andTagbilaran (3.18) counterparts who only said “somewhat good.” Interestingly, Ilonggos spent the most forwellness among Visayans and even more than the rest of the country. Ilonggosallotted about P3,300 monthly for R&R spending, beating Bacolod (aboutP2,800), Cebu (at least P2,000), Tagbilaran (at least P2,300), and even mostother Filipinos (at least P3,000). The survey discovered that Ilonggos were ableto pay for their medical bills and see their doctors and dentists regularlymore often than the rest of the country. The study was inspired by wellness and healthindices in New Zealand (The Sovereign Wellbeing Index of 2015), Canada (TheCanadian Index of Wellbeing), and the United States (The State of AmericanWell-Being of 2017).  Former Health secretary and chairman of the2019 PhilCare Wellness Index, Dr. Enrique Ona, said PhilCare intends to sharemore findings of the study to the public to raise awareness of the well-beingof Filipinos. Having a good disposition with finances, orfinancial wellness, is also a key indicator of wellness, and Ilonggos signifiedhaving the best grasp of it among Visayans. They earn the most sufficiently tocover for their needs, are most comfortable with the amount of debt they have,and are able to save and invest the most. Conversely, most other Filipinos were more“chill” compared to Ilonggos with the nationwide score plotted at 3.88 or“neither stressed nor not stressed.” At the same time, though, the survey foundIlonggos as among the most stressed of all Filipinos, being often pressed fortime and are unable to get enough sleep frequently.

Dr. Paragas said this year’s PhilCare WellnessIndex involved not just a survey, but also a series of focus group discussions,where participants from different sectors delved on problems and solutionsrelevant to the goal of inclusive health care. Ilonggos also had more sex than the rest ofthe country, saying they do it twice a week, higher than the nationwide andVisayas average of at least once a week. Bacolodnons and Tagbilaranons alsoindicated having sex twice weekly. “There is more to health than just the absenceof disease. Our vision is to help promote a brand of health that is holisticand inclusive. The PhilCare Wellness Index gives us a clear picture on where weare when it comes to wellness and, more importantly, it charts a clear path onhow far we can go to promote health among Filipinos,” he said. Questions about sex life, along with stress,vices and health practices, were part of the study commissioned by PhilCare, aleading health maintenance organization (HMO). Iloilo City respondents said they had a “good”sex life, scoring 2.70 on the Wellness Index scale compared to those in BacolodCity (2.84), Cebu City (3.11), Tagbilaran City (3.02), and even most otherFilipinos (2.74) who said theirs was only “somewhat good.” When Ilonggos themselves were asked to ratetheir overall health and wellness, they said it was also “good,” with a scoreof 2.69, again beating Bacolod (2.96), Cebu (3.24), Tagbilaran (3.25), and thenationwide average (2.84); or “somewhat good.”last_img read more

Flatness Projected for December New Home Sales

first_img Mortgage applications for purchases of new homes fell again in December, but an early estimate projects actual sales numbers held steady from November.The Mortgage Bankers Association (MBA) reported Thursday that applications for new home purchases fell 0.4 percent month-over-month in December. The survey results, which are based on application data from mortgage operations of homebuilders, don’t include any seasonal adjustments.Despite the drop in applications, MBA estimates that new home sales in December came to an unadjusted 28,000, flat from November, while the seasonally adjusted annual sales rate moved up 2 percent to 409,000.Joel Kan, associate VP of industry surveys and forecasting for the group, explained that the sales data also includes estimates for all-cash transactions.The Commerce Department estimated last month that new home sales in November were at a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 438,000, coming in between economic projections of 460,000 and MBA’s prediction of 401,000.The government’s estimate for December new home sales, due January 27, will include a revision for November. Though the methodology between the government’s reading and MBA’s estimate is different, revisions in the last year have tended to be for the worse.On a brighter note, MBA projects that sales in January and February will lift slightly as the housing market comes out of the annual holiday slowdown.”We had a low point, so any amount of activity will show up as a gain, but you have to start somewhere,” Kan said.Conventional loans made up 70.8 percent of new home purchase applications in December, MBA reported, up from 69.3 percent in November. Loans insured by the Federal Housing Administration (FHA) and the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) accounted for 15.3 percent and 12.7 percent, respectively, each down from the last survey.The average loan size for new homes last month was up to $311,398, meanwhile, a more than $4,400 dollar increase from November.
