Indonesia - Dov Chernichovsky

Abstract

Data from the National Socio-economic Survey for 1978 are used to give a profile of poverty in Indonesia. Households are classified into the poor and nonpoor categories according to their levels of per capita consumption, with a breakdown into urban and rural areas of Java and the Outer Islands. Poor and nonpoor households are then compared in terms of their geographical distribution, demographic characteristics, economic and noneconomic activities of individuals, sources of household income, consumption patterns, housing conditions, and schooling and health.

Abstract

Indonesia has achieved one of the most impressive records in fertility reduction over the past two decades. The country's total fertility rate has declined from an estimated 5.5 in 1967 - 1970 to 3.4 in 1987. Population growth has been estimated at 2.1 percent during the eighties. Many observers credit Indonesia's National Family Planning Coordinating Board (BKKBN) as being instrumental in this fertility reduction and slowdown of population growth. BKKBN is a public sector organization responsible for planning and coordination of almost all family planning activities in Indonesia. The study objective is to provide BKKBN and the government of Indonesia with data that can help improve the cost-effectiveness of family planning delivery. The study examines resource allocation, cost, funding institutions, and output of the program at grassroots level in selected regencies in three provinces: West Java, the Special District of Yogyakarta, and South Kalimantan. It is based on data about the program's field operations collected during November 1986 - March 1987, and routine service statistics of BKKBN.
