Proportion of local government officials who are considered as dynastic. An elected local government official is flagged as "fat" dynastic if he or she has at least one relative who won a local government elected position in the same local government elections as he or she did. An elected local government official is flagged as "thin" dynastic if he or she has at least one relative who occupied a local government post in any of the preceding three election cycles.

It is a metric that is patterned after the industrial Herfindahl index that measures the level of concentration in industries (i.e. how much of the market is controlled by the largest firms). The dynasty Herfindahl measures the level of concentration of local elected positions controlled by local political dynasties.

Proportion of local government officials who belong to the largest dynasty of the province (e.g. Singsons of Ilocos Sur control approx 8% of all local government positions)

Proportion of provincial population with annual incomes below the provincial poverty line
