Abstract: This study aims to investigate how Poverty Incidence (PI) determines the students academic performance in the four core areas of NAT using Discriminant Analysis. The study utilized a multivariate secondary data of the Average Poverty Incidence from 2009 2015 of sixteen regions in the Philippines with the corresponding NAT results in the four core subjects, namely: Science, Mathematics, English, and Filipino. The data were then analyzed employing Discriminant Analysis. Findings show that to some extent, the Not Poor group has gained advantage over the Poor group in Filipino, Science, and English categories, while only in Mathematics had the Poor group gained an edge.
