A Sta&s&cal Inference on Candidate Choice in Dagupan City
BlueStorm Consul.ng, 2015. For Private Use Only
RESEARCH BACKGROUND AND PARAMETERS
The study was privately commissioned and conducted, with no
par&ality towards any candidate/ party/ interest. The data-‐
gathering team was unaware who enlisted them.
No member of the data-‐gathering team have any &es (whether
familial or associa&ve) with the City of Dagupan and/or the
Province of Pangasinan.
Results and tabula&on were validated through verbal read-‐back,
with triple cross-‐checking.
Based on the latest data from the Philippine Sta&s&cs Authority-‐
NSCB, the number of registered voters in Dagupan City stands at
approximately 92,867 (rounded up to 93,000 for concision).

Only one voter per household was requested to ﬁll-‐out the
survey form, ideally the head of the family. In the absence of
voters, the house within closest proximity was subs&tuted.
This protocol was observed for each barangay, un&l the target
number of respondents was achieved. Data gathering was
conducted from December 5, 2016 to December 7, 2016.
In order to most accurately gauge voter sen&ment and simulate
elec&on-‐day condi&ons, a MOCK BALLOT was provided, with
corresponding verbal instruc&ons (“halimbawa po, araw na ng
eleksyon ngayon at ito ang inyong balota. Sino-‐sino po ang
pipiliin ninyo? / kunwari po tunay at oﬃcial itong balota na ito.”)
IMPORTANT NOTE: An “undecided” op&on was given to the
respondents for MAYOR and VICE MAYOR, in order to gather
beger voter insight and provide a more precise “sta&s&cal
snapshot” of the current sen&ment during the &me of the survey.
