However, since the late 1960s, urban regions, especially the Manila area, have
had difficulty absorbing migrants. The population growth of cities has been faster
than the creation of jobs or the construction of adequate housing, resulting in
high unemployment rates, significant levels of urban poverty, the explosion of
informal activities and the proliferation of slums. Philippine cities, especially
Manila, are now among the most densely populated anywhere in the world (
Leyco 2015).

Until recently the anti-Mexico among the large emerging nations was the
Philippines, where the influence of a twentieth-century plantation society has
created a remarkable split in the population between the capital and the
countryside. Currently 13 percent of Filipinos live in Manila, a proportion that has

Assuming that high-rise tenements, similar to those built by the Macapagal
administration in 1965, would be used for low-income people, the cost of such a
program would be a prohibitively high P500 million. In its proposed housing
program for 1971-74 the government has, in fact, given a low priority to social
housing. Only P43.2 million out of the P719 million scheduled for the total
government program is slated for low-income people. Summary The problems of
the Philippine city can ...
