By Elizabeth Frankenberg, Kathleen Beegle, Bondan Sikoki, Duncan Thomas
The results reported in this paper are preliminary. This study is based on data from two rounds of the Indonesian Family Life Survey (IFLS2/2+), a project of RAND, in collaboration with UCLA and the Demographic Institute of the University of Indonesia. We are grateful to William Emmett, the POLICY Project, who supported the broader project in its early stages. We are also indebted to Bill Winfrey and Harry Cross (also of POLICY). Scott Guggenheim provided the impetus that led to the World Bank’s support for this project. Gillie Brown and Lant Pritchett provided valuable input. Our colleagues at the Demographic Institute have worked untiringly under extremely stressful conditions to make this project a success. We cannot overstate their contribution. We are especially grateful to Bondan Sikoki, Ni Wayan Suriastini, Muda Saputra, Endang Pudjani, Sutji Rochani, Akhir Matua Harahap, Cecep Sukria Sumantri, Hendratno, Iip, Wilson Victor and Widodo who helped to develop and pretest the instruments, train the interviewers, and supervise the fieldwork. We also owe a debt to Victoria Beard, Trevor Croft, Jim Smith, John Strauss, Graciela Teruel, and to all the supervisors, interviewers, and respondents who have participated in the Indonesia Family Life Survey.
