Aiming to examine the impacts of price volatility of food and other basic needs on poor and vulnerable people, this study takes into account the socioeconomic costs the people have to pay in managing the changes in their everyday life. Global food prices have shown a more volatile and higher trend in recent years. In Indonesia, unpredictable and more frequent changes in food and other basic needs prices over the past years have led to a widespread view that price volatility has been a common occurrence.
