SMERU's interactive Poverty and Livelihood Map of Indonesia details the poverty estimates and livelihood conditions of the 33 provinces, 497 districts and cities, 6,654 subdistricts, and 76,125 villages across Indonesia. The map presents the 2010 poverty estimates of the general population, as well as children (population below 18 years old), using the national and international ($2 PPP) poverty lines.
The free and publically acccessible tool is invaluable for poverty reduction and social assistance programs, particularly for geographical targeting at the subdistrict or village level. It can also be used to determine the type of assistance needed in particular areas, or as a baseline for program evaluation.
The map was developed with the support of the Ford Foundation Indonesia and UNICEF. It uses data from the 2010 Population Census, 2010 National Socioeconomic Survey (Susenas), and 2011 Village Census (Podes). The poverty estimates presented in this map are calculated using small area poverty estimation method. It updates the 2003 version which we developed based on the 2000 Population Census data. The 2003 map is not available online, but if you would like a copy of it, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
