The administration of Benigno Aquino III exited on a “very good” note, with 66 percent of Filipinos satisfied with its performance, according to a survey by Social Weather Stations.

SWS said the survey conducted June 24 to 27 saw the Aquino administration getting a “very good” net satisfaction rating of +50.

It said this included 66 percent of adult Filipinos satisfied, 17 percent dissatisfied, and 17 percent neither satisfied nor dissatisfied.

SWS said this was the highest for the outgoing administration since +51 in December 2013, and a 15-point improvement from the “good” +35 in April 2016.

Results of the survey were posted Monday on SWS’ media partner BusinessWorld.

SWS classifies net satisfaction ratings of +70 and above as “excellent”; +50 to +69 “very good”; +30 to +49 “good”; +10 to +29 “moderate”; +9 to -9 “neutral”; -10 to -29, “poor”; -30 to -49, “bad”; -50 to -69, “very bad”; and -70 and below, “execrable.”

Meanwhile, the SWS said the Aquino administration got net satisfaction ratings of very good on 3 issues, good on 5 issues, and moderate on 5 issues.

It rated very good on Developing science and technology (+54); Promoting the welfare of OFWs (Overseas Filipino Workers) (+52); and Helping the poor (+51).

The Aquino administration scored “good” on Foreign relations (+48); Defending the country’s territorial rights (+45); Restoring peace to Mindanao (+43); Providing jobs (+40); and Fighting crimes (+31).

But its ratings were moderate on: Eradicating graft and corruption (+27); Reconciliation with Muslim rebels (+25); Reconciliation with Communist rebels (+25); Ensuring that no family will ever be hungry (+25); and Fighting inflation (+19).

The survey used face-to-face interviews of 1,200 adults including 300 each in Metro Manila, Balance Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao.

It had sampling error margins of ±3% for national percentages, and ±6% each for Metro Manila, Balance Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao.
