Abstract: Poverty has been a main concern for century in any part of the world. The abrupt increase of population in the country and the inevitable rise of the inflation rate due to the economic challenges and other factors, it is clearly manifested that poverty is a problem that needs to be addressed seriously. With the available various advanced-technology nowadays, this problem on poverty maybe reduced with the aide of Data Mining which is a part of Data Science. This paper focused on predicting the poverty alleviation using Data Mining techniques based from all available data from the Philippine Statistic’s Authority, National Economic Development Authority, and Department of Social Welfare and Development. The application of supervised learning in Data Mining specifically, NaiveBayes Algorithm, Decision Tree J48 Algorithm, and K- Nearest Neighbour Algorithm has been utilized for the prediction of poverty alleviation in the province of Eastern Samar. The results of this study unveil that among the core indicators in identifying poverty, it is the “Economic Sector” with the attribute “Income” is the most significant factor that affects poverty alleviation in the province.
