ABSTRACT
The family occupies a central place in social structure. The family is called as the keystone because of its importance in the setting of patterns of status and role, and in the maintaining of the stratification system. It has been possible to isolate some of the factors affecting persistence of tradition or contributing to change, by studying immigration records, vital statistics, general data derived from observation of the Chinese and information furnished by them, as well as by analyzing interview materials. It is generally agreed among those who have studied the Chinese family overseas, that it remains basically the traditional Chinese family. A Chinese who emigrated from southeastern China was already different from his brothers or cousins who stayed in the homeland. There have not been enough Chinese women in the Philippines to provide Chinese wives for the men. The sex ratio in the Philippines, is approximately 3.2 Chinese men to one woman. All Chinese households in the Ilocos were kinship units.
