Local institutions and service delivery in Indonesia (English)

The objective of this report is to provide a map of local institutions which exist in rural Indonesia and to investigate the extent to which they are involved in the delivery of services (health, education, credit, land registration). The report focuses on several key dimensions of local institutions: density of membership, internal homogeneity, attendance of meetings, active participation in decisionmaking, type of organization (state or community initiated, formal or informal), and membership dues. This report is part of the first-phase (descriptive) analysis of the data collected by the Local Level Institutions Study. This phase investigates several aspects of the functioning of local institutions. The second phase of the analysis undertakes a multivariate analysis of the role of local institutions in determining access to services by households and in affecting household welfare and poverty. In that setting, the impact of local institutions is compared with the impact of household assets such as education and physical capital.
