Listahanan does not identify or delist beneficiaries of 4Ps
by DSWD release

The Department of Social Welfare and Development has clarified that the Listahanan 3 or the 3rd Round Nationwide Household Assessment aims to identify who and where the poor are in the country and does not determine additional beneficiaries nor delist ineligible households under the Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program (4Ps).

The clarification was made after the  circulation of reports and infographics stating that the assessment would give non-beneficiaries a chance to be included in the 4Ps and for ineligible families to be removed from the program.

DSWD warned against the unofficial infographics that have gone viral and urged the public to refer only to infographics and other materials posted on the official DSWD Facebook page, Department of Social Welfare and Development, and Twitter account @dswdserves.

Listahanan or the database of poor households will be the product of the nationwide assessment.

DSWD, through Listahanan, is mandated by Executive Order 867 s. 2010 to adopt a targeting system as the standard mechanism for identifying poor households who shall be potential recipients of social protection programs nationwide. 

Its main objective is to formulate unified criteria for the identification of the poor through scientific means.

It is different from 4Ps, which is one of the programs using the database. The initial list of potential beneficiaries for 4Ps came from Listahanan, but the final list depends on requirements prescribed in the guidelines. 

These are: the households whose income status is equal to or below the official provincial poverty threshold; households that have children zero to 18 years old, or have a pregnant woman at the time of assessment; and households that agree to meet the conditions specified in the program.

The delisting of 4Ps beneficiaries is done through the Grievance Redress System (GRS), which follows a process to validate the delisting of beneficiaries, which are based on factors such as fraud, waived enrollment, no more eligible members, and income is above poverty threshold.

DSWD partnered with the Department of the Interior and Local Government to ensure the cooperation of local government units, specifically the barangays, in the ongoing assessment.
