Immigration of Foreign Nationals in the Philippines

Las Johansen B. Caluza


Foreign immigrant inflows were studied to find out the hidden dimensions attributed to the migration of foreign nationals to the Philippines. This exploratory study used fractal statistics for determining high and low contributors of foreign immigrants in the Philippines through data sets that were picked up from the cloud computing and interpreted qualitatively. Based on the results, it was found out that the countries that belong to the extreme low contribution of foreign immigrants have no cultural ties and have high currency value compared to those in the top extreme high countries as a basis for finding the hidden dimension. Lastly, the hidden dimensions were used to set inputs to sociology, cultural drift, and population dynamics.
