Population Data

Indonesia has successfully produced different national datasets: population projections 2010 to 2035, launched by the President as a main reference for development planning in Indonesia; estimation of MMR from census data; IDHS; and the Inter-censal Population Survey. However, availability of quality data to estimate development indicators, including the SDGs, and its utilization in national and subnational development planning and policy, remain a challenge.

UNFPA supports the Government of Indonesia in data production, dissemination, coordination and utilization for development indicators, including SDGs.

UNFPA promotes innovation for quality data collection and use, through use of mobile applications and innovative platforms for data access.

In the next five years, UNFPA will support the Government in strengthening national data coordination across sectors to improve evidence-based policy formulation (equitable service delivery and accountability).

To overcome the barriers posed by decentralization, UNFPA will work together with BPS Statistics Indonesia at the subnational level, to strengthen how data is collected, disseminated and used at district level for improved localized policy making and programme planning and monitoring.
