Barangays

Map of the Philippines highlighting the location of barangays

The barangay is the smallest political unit in the Philippines. Each municipality or city is therefore made up of barangays.

The barangay government unit is composed of elective officials called the Punong Barangay who is the chief executive, the Sangguniang Barangay members, also called Kagawads, and the Sangguniang Kabataan Chairman. The appointive officials are the barangay Secretary, the barangay Treasurer, the members of the Lupong Tagapamayapa, and the barangay Tanods.

The primary requisite for the creation of a barangay is a population of at least 2,000. But for highly urbanized cities, a minimum of 5,000 inhabitants is required. The creation of a barangay is done by law or an ordinance of the Sangguniang Panlalawigan or Sangguniang Panlungsod, and has to be ratified by the affected voting population through a plebiscite.

Number of barangays

Based on the 2015 census, there are 42,036 barangays in the Philippines. Ranking all the local government units – provinces, cities and municipalities – in descending order, the three (3) provinces with the highest number of barangays are Iloilo (1,721), Leyte (1,503), and Pangasinan (1,364), and those with the lowest number are Guimaras (98), Camiguin (58), and Batanes (29). The cities with the biggest total number of barangays are Manila (897), Pasay (201), and Caloocan (188), and those with the smallest number are Muntinlupa (9), Canlaon (12), and Trece Martires (13).

Among the municipalities, Miagao in Iloilo (119), Lopez in Quezon province (95), Leon in Iloilo (85), and San Joaquin in Iloilo (85) had the highest number of barangays while Kalayaan in Palawan (1), Adams in Ilocos Norte (1), Turtle Islands in Tawi-Tawi (2), and Dumalneg in Ilocos Norte (2) had the lowest.

Most used barangay names (exact match, 10+ occurrences)

Interestingly, there are many barangays with the same names. Among the 42,036 barangays in the Philippines as of 2015, the barangay names with the highest occurrence are, in descending order, Poblacion (605), San Isidro (314), San Jose (247), San Roque (213), and San Vicente (204). It must be noted that partial names such as Poblacion 1, Poblacion East, and South Poblacion, etc. have been listed separately and not included under the distinct barangay name Poblacion. Yet there is another name that stands out among all the barangay names, although it has a Roman number such as I, II, etc. or Hindu-Arabic number such as 1, 2, etc. attached: Barangay. As of 2015, the cities of Manila, Pasay and Caloocan alone have 897, 201 and 188 barangays, respectively, all named Barangay with number attachments. To illustrate, Caloocan’s barangays are named Barangay 1, Barangay 2, through Barangay 188. Another notable observation regarding the barangays is that an overwhelming number are named after a saint, foremost of which are San Isidro, San Jose, San Roque, San Vicente, San Antonio, and Santo Niño. Furthermore, a considerable number of barangays are named after a hero, martyr, or former president such as Rizal (125), Magsaysay (109), Mabini (85), Burgos (46), and Quezon (42).
