Housing Statistics

In 1995, the National Statistics Office conducted a mid-decade national census and provided the housing statistics of the province of Batangas. The conducted survey of National Statistics Office in 1990 reveals that there are 35,056 housing units in the city of Batangas. Out of this figure, 34,448 or 98.27% are occupied and 608 or 1.73% are vacant. ( the 1995 NSO survey for housing units is not yet avaible).


Subdivisions

One of the indicators of a growing city is the increasing number of residential subdivisions being developed. At present, there are eighty two (82) residential subdivisions in the city, wherein the Housing and Land Use Regulatory Board approved 29, the Sangguniang Panlungsod per R.A. 7160 approved 20 and 33 were existing/operating but have no HLURB/NHA approval. These subdivision lots are being sold with current prices ranging from P2, 500.00 to P3, 500.00 per square meter.

Majority of squatters in Batangas City can be found in government lots. Portions of Barangay Sta. Clara and the non-functional railroad track of the Philippine National Railways from Barangay 24 up to Balagtas are presently occupied by squatters. Squatters can also be found in Varela St., Sitio Ferry, Kumintang Ibaba, Cuta and Wawa.
