1 Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA) computed annual and end-quarter population estimates using curvilinear interpolation at decelerating rates,
with the results of the 2000 and 2010 Censuses of Population and Housing (CPH) as start and end dates of the reference population.  For purposes 
of national accounts estimation, mid-quarter population  estimates are used; this is obtained by interpolating two consecutive end-quarter estimates.
