The performance of Philippine President Benigno S. Aquino III was rated "very good" by victims of typhoon Haiyan, locally known as Yolanda, according to a survey published by research institute Social Weather Stations (SWS) on Thursday.


Results of the SWS fourth quarter survey, which was conducted on Dec. 11 to 16, showed that 13 percent of Filipino households suffered "serious harm" during the recent super typhoon.


SWS noted that the survey found higher satisfaction ratings for Aquino among typhoon victims compared to those who were not victimized by Haiyan.


Among typhoon victims, 73 percent reported that they were satisfied with Aquino's performance as president. This boosted the net satisfaction rating of Aquino to +54 which the SWS classifies as "very good."


In contrast, 69 percent of non-victims said they were satisfied while 21 percent were dissatisfied with Aquino's performance, bringing his net satisfaction rating to +48. SWS said this is classified as "good."


Typhoon Haiyan struck central Philippines on Nov. 8, killing more than 6,200 people and causing billions of pesos worth of damage to agriculture and infrastructure.


Aquino's government was criticized earlier for the delay in delivering relief goods and other assistance needed by typhoon victims.
