Following are the highlights of the inventory of research studies that were undertaken:

  1. Facilitated research studies are constantly increasing from year 2010 to 2013. However, a rapid declined was observed in 2014 to 2015 due to minimal number of student request for study in DSWD Offices, Centers and Institutions. In CY 2016 there were 233 researches facilitated which is relatively higher compared to the previous years. On the completed researches, the DSWD was able to obtained 110 completed studies or about 19% of the facilitated researches during CY 2010-2016. Ratio of completed researches to the number of facilitated researches is relatively lower due to time restriction. Major issues are that some students shifted their respondents because of time constraints in the approval of their request to conduct data gathering and lack of follow-up of DSWD on the submission of completed research studies.
