Poverty is a global phenomenon that stunts the growth and quality of life of the population. This study aims to examine the relationship between demographic factors and poverty mobility in the Philippines. Specifically, it measures the effect of age, family size, and education on the movement in and out of poverty for the years 2008 and 2011. Using binary logistic regression, results reveal that the demographic factors included in the study significantly affect state of poverty of Filipino households. Furthermore, it estimates a causal model to examine mobility in and out of poverty in the Philippines using repeated cross-sections analysis.
