Poverty in Indonesia : a profile (English)

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.
