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.
