For background information and an overview on interpreting the graphs, refer to the Inequality graphs: Introduction.

The Contents list below presents the topics and indicators, including the dates when each indicator was released, in the general order used by PHIDU in their products by the themes of Demographic and social indicators; Health status, disability and deaths; and Use and provision of health and welfare services.
