Family Composition

It is difficult to classify the Filipino family as it tends to change in composition from time to time. The latest statistics available show that a typical Filipino family consists of six persons (three females and three males) but this is not complete family. Of this six members, three are aged 15 or over (parents and one young adult); the other three are under 14. The young adult may have left and established household, by the time the data were printed. The urban (6, 4) household is slightly larger in number than the rural (6.08) and contrary to general observation, a higher proportion of nuclear family households (77.0) are in rural rather than urban centers.
