Children in Indonesia: An analysis of poverty, mobility and multidimensional deprivation

This Indonesian Central Bureau of Statistics (BPS) report provides estimates of monetary child poverty, poverty dynamics and welfare mobility, and multidimensional child deprivation. It also presents results from a micro-simulation model to estimate the cost and poverty impacts of universal child grants in Indonesia.

It is the result of a year-long project between the BPS, United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) and Development Pathways on poverty and child well-being. It followed a series of technical workshops with statisticians; analysis of data from a range of new household surveys; and an investigation of the incidence, causes and effects of child poverty and poverty dynamics in Indonesia.

The analysis was carried out using data from Indonesia’s 2016 National Socio-Economic Survey of a representative sample of households containing 1.1 million people.
