Incorrect & outdatedEdit
This edit (a revert) caught my eye. I tried to check the figure against the cited supporting source, and found WP:linkrot. I dug up archived pages (e.g., , and ) and found that both figures were wrong (the correct figure looks like 10,534 per month). I started working to fix the article using the archived pages, then stumbled across some more recent figures here.
This article needs to be audited against current figures and updated. I don't have the time to do that right now, so I'm mentioning it here in case someone else wants to pitch in. I may get back to this when I have more time. Wtmitchell (talk) (earlier Boracay Bill) 08:38, 2 September 2017 (UTC)
Data from 2014 and typhoon Haiyan/YolandaEdit
I wonder whether the data had been taken before or after the landfall of typhoon Haiyan/Yolanda on Nov 3, 2013. On the maps southeastern Samar is indicated as very poor but this is where Haiyan hit the country first.--Wolle1303 (talk) 08:23, 28 March 2019 (UTC)
Lead section needs rework, article needs updateEdit
This edit caught my eye and, beyond the changes made there, it strikes me that this article lacks a proper MOS:LEADSENTENCE, MOS:LEADPARAGRAPH and WP:MOSLEAD section. Looking back at the article edit history, I see that this has been the case for several years.
Along the way of looking back, I saw this image in earlier versions of the article (e.g., this version from 13:29, January 8, 2017), but it is now outdated and unused. With a little googling, I found this similar and more current image in this press release by the Philippine Statistics Authority. That article luinks related Tables and Thematic Maps here Wtmitchell (talk) (earlier Boracay Bill) 12:07, 23 November 2019 (UTC)
