Caveats / Comments

All data is drawn from government survey results and is subject to any associated limitations or distortions present in the source data. The methodology by which literacy was measured during the census is not known. Language and dialect naming conventions in the census are sometimes unclear, and in some cases have been grouped or allocated to the Other Languages field. The provinces of Negros Occidental and Negros Oriental were separated and became Negros Island Region in May 2015. In 2017 this was cancelled and they reverted to Western Visayas and Central Visayas, respectively. It is likely that future P-code versions will reflect this. Language shares below 0.1% of an area population have been discarded. As a result, languages may not be present at higher administrative levels. All decimal values have been rounded to a maximum of 3 decimal places. As a result, language shares may not total 100%. Empty values represent non-existent data, and should not be treated as zero values.
