A PIDS study found that trust in institutions is a multidimensional concept. Aside from customer satisfaction and quality of governance, Filipinos’ level of education and membership in socio-civic groups influence their trust in the local government. Those with higher levels of education like a postgraduate degree are less likely to develop trust easily as they are likely to be more informed of the political process and thus may be more critical of the local government. Those who are affiliated with civic organizations like religious/social/cultural and self-help groups are more trustful of the local government than those who belong to a development group or NGO particularly if it performs the role of monitoring or analyzing the work of local institutions.
