Thinking Machines, a Philippine data science services company, did an
analysis of where in the Philippines buildings are still missing by
comparing OSM data with the Facebook's population dataset:

The provinces that are very complete are due to mapping in the wake of
disasters (like Typhoon Haiyan in 2013 and Typhoon Mangkhut in 2018) like
Leyte and Cagayan, and due to Project ISAIAH, the building mapping project
of NOAH, a government disaster analysis institution, like Cavite, Batangas,
and Zambales.
