Majority of Filipinos are satisified with the performance of the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP), based on the recent survey conducted by OCTA Research.

According to its recent Tugon ng Masa survey, 86 percent of adult Filipinos said they were satisfied with the AFP’s performance and its accomplishments while 87 percent expressed their trust to the country's military force.

Among those satisfied, 23 percent said they were "very satisfied" and 63 percent were "somewhat satisfied" with AFP's performance.

Only 2 percent expressed dissatisfaction with the country's military, while the remaining 11 percent said they could not say if they were satisfied or not.


“According to the findings of the survey, the AFP received consistently high ratings for trust and satisfaction in 2023. As per the OCTA survey, the AFP emerged as one of the most trusted and top-performing government agencies in 2023,” OCTA said.

The armed forces’ satisfaction ratings were over +85 on all areas of the country, except for the National Capital Region (NCR) where it scored +73 rating.

Most of the respondents in A, B, C and E economic classes gave the highest satisfaction ratings.

“The AFP’s net satisfaction rating hardly moved from +83 in October 2023 to +84 in December 2023. The AFP’s net satisfaction rating rose by 5 points in all areas except in Mindanao, where it was down by 3 points,” the survey stated.

Across different major areas, the AFP's net trust rating ranges from +77 to +89 with the highest in Mindanao, while its lowest is in Metro Manila.

Regarding socioeconomic classes, the AFP’s net trust rating is highest in Class ABC at +87, which is closely followed by those in Class D and E, at +84 and +85, respectively.
