Bohol: 21st most populous province

TAGBILARAN CITY, June 14 (PIA)--At a population of 1,313,160, Bohol now ranks 21st among the country's most populous, data from the August 2015 Census of Population (POPCEN 2015) show.

This too as the population of the Philippines as of August 1, 2015 reached 100,981,437, higher by 8.64 million compared with the population of 92.34 million in 2010, and by 24.47 million compared with the population of 76.51 million in 2000, according to the Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA).

But as the Philippine population increased by 1.72 percent annually, Bohol on the other hand enjoyed a slight decrease from .97 to .87% in 2015, reports PSA Bohol Statistician Jessamyne Anne Alcazaren.

It could be the effect of the reproductive health and family planning, PSA Bohol mused, but seconded that she is not sure about this.
At the Kapihan sa PIA, Thursday, June 30, Alcazaren also said Tagbilaran City, Bohol's capital showed a population of 105,051, has the densest population.

On the other hand, of the 47 towns and a city in Bohol, Sikatuna keeps the lowest population density at 6,726.

Top ten most populous towns in Bohol include Tagbilaran City, Ubay (73,712, Talibon (66,969), Carmen (46,306), Tubigon (45,893), Inabanga (45,880), Dauis (45,663), Loon (43,034), Calape (36,863) and Jagna (33,892).

In Bohol, Cogon District of Tagbilaran City is the most populous barangay, while least dense among barangays is Libertad Sur, Sagbayan.

Barangay Riverside, of Inabanga had zero entries, possibly because after the earthquake, much of the barangay population were evacuated to Maria Rosario.

Elsewhere, the POPCEN 2015 also showed that of the country’s 18 administrative regions, Region IV-A (CALABARZON) had the biggest population in 2015 with 14.41 million.

National Capital Region (NCR) follows with 12.88 million, and then, Region III (Central Luzon) with 11.22 million.

The combined population of these three regions accounted for about 38.1 percent of the Philippine population in 2015.

Meanwhile, the census also showed that Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (ARMM) was the fastest growing region with an average annual population growth rate (PGR) of 2.89 percent.

Of the country's 81 provinces, Cavite was the most populous in 2015 with 3.68 million persons, followed by Bulacan (3.29 million), and Laguna (3.04 million).

Twenty-four other provinces surpassed the one million population mark. Refer to Table 3, the census said.
