Socio-Economic Impact of COVID-19 on Households in Indonesia
Providing strategic policy recommendations that will lead to an inclusive and sustainable recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic, leaving no one behind.
In an effort to understand the social and economic impacts of COVID-19 on women, families with children, vulnerable groups, and people with disabilities, the largest household survey recorded in Indonesia was launched between October and December 2020.
Through the use of surveys, over 12,000 families — across 34 provinces and 247 districts — were surveyed. The results revealed information about the impact of COVID-19 on employment, micro-businesses, food security, access to health, educational services and access to social protection programmes. On a deeper level, it provided insight into the impact of the pandemic on children’s development and wellbeing.
Lastly, this study provides strategic policy recommendations that will lead to an inclusive and sustainable recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic, leaving no one behind.
Datasets of the survey are available through Socioeconomic Database for Children for further analysis.
