The selection of TEEP provinces was purposive because it intended to cover the most depressed provinces identified in the Social Reform Agenda . TEEP allocation is rather different in the Philippines’ three macro -regions. As shown in Figure 2.1, in the northern macro region of Luzon, TEEP was concentrated in the Cordillera Administrative Region , a mountainous region in the center of northern Luzon. In the central macro -region of Visayas, TEEP divisions were relatively evenly distributed . In the southern Mindanao macro - region , TEEP divisions were clustered, though not as clustered as in northern Luzon.
