Note: Personal remittances is computed as the sum of net compensation of employees (i.e., gross earnings of overseas Filipino (OF) workers  
with work contracts of less than one year, including all sea-based workers, less taxes, social contributions, and transportation and travel   
expenditures in their host countries), personal transfers (i.e., all current transfers in cash or in kind by OF workers with work contracts of one   
year or more as well as other household-to-household transfers between Filipinos who have migrated abroad and their families in the Philippines)   
and capital transfers between households (i.e., transfer of fixed assets and financial assets that arise from the migration of   
individuals from one economy to another).
