Research shows that the size of a nation's science and technology (S&T) labor force and training system have a positive effect on economic development (Schofer et al., 2000). Specifically, a highly skilled S&T workforce is considered one of four pillars required to transform into a knowledge-based economy (ADB, 2007). And within the last decade or so, there is a resurgence of efforts of various countries, including the Philippines, to quantify the contributions of its S&T workforce in creating a positive impact in society towards nation building (DOST, 2019).
