"The expressed mandate of the Philippine Population Association is the advancement of the study of population in general, and of the Philippine population in particular. While there is value in the study of population for study's sake, the mandate of the Philippine Population Association goes beyond: it is the advancement of population studies designed to produce knowledge that, when applied, will have beneficial impact on the well-being of the populations studied"
