In Cebu, a purok is typically composed of 20 to 50 or even more members depending on the particular geographical location and cluster of houses. Some of the Cebu barangays have as many as 8 puroks. If created and given a mandate by an ordinance of the barangay, municipality, or city, a purok can perform government functions with the coordination and supervision of the local officials. In many puroks, a single councilor from Sangguniang Barangay and Kabataan is in charge of leading their respective purok. In others a set of officers are elected either every year or every three years.
Puroks are similar to sitios but the latter are more isolated and more rural whereas puroks are closer to the center of the barangay, especially the barangay hall.
