True. Only a few people work on compiling folk literature in the Philippines because Philippines are made up of 1,707 (if I am not mistaken) islands. and if you are going to compile Philippine folk literature it means that you are going to travel at that 1,707 islands in order to collect many folk literature.

This question can be false, because not all countries are archipelagic state, and a person who compiles folk literature will be easy. 

But I know that you are from Philippines so that answer should be True.
