The Indonesian government requires a set of population projections for
planning purposes, and a new official set of projections is prepared after each
population census has been completed. The latest set of projections were
completed and presented to the public on 29 January 2014, at an occasion
presided over by the President. These projections are for the population of
Indonesia as a whole, as well as for each of its 33 provinces. They were prepared
by a team comprising representatives from relevant government agencies and
university experts, reporting to Ministry of National Development Planning/
National Development Planning Agency (Kementerian PPN/Bappenas) and
BPS-Statistics Indonesia. Preparation of the projections was supported by
the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA)
