De jure and de facto approaches are applied in order to catch all people in the enumeration areas. Those who have permanent residence are approached using de jure criterion, that is, they are recorded where they formally lived; while those without permanent residence are approached using de facto criterion and are recorded where they were found. All members of Diplomatic Corps and their families are excluded from the census.
Intercensal Population Survey
Intercensal Population Survey are carried out in the mid period between two population censuses. Selected households are interviewed in order to obtain information regarding demographic situation such as fertility, mortality and migration.
National Indonesia Contraceptive Prevalence Survey and Indonesia Demographic and Health Survey
Similar to the Intercensal Population Survey, this survey produces demographic measures, especially fertility, family planning and mortality. Selected household are interviewed for this purpose.
Population data based on Civil Registration are obtained from administrative records of village authorities. At the regional and national levels, data are obtained by adding one record to another for all villages. This activity (undertaken by the Ministry of Home Affairs) uses de jure approach.
Population Census and Civil Registration cover all Indonesia s geographical areas. In 1971 Population Census, detailed information were collected from 3.8 percent of total households excluding East Timor, whereas in 1980 and 1990 the same information were collected from 5 percent of total households or about 2 million households.
In 1976, Intercensal Population Survey covered around 60 733 households in 26 provinces, while in 1985 number of households selected were 125 400 throughout 27 provinces in Indonesia.
The National Indonesia Contraceptive Prevalence Survey (1987) covered about 14 000 households. Provinces were divided into three types: Java Bali, Outer Java Bali I (Dista Aceh, North Sumatera, West Sumatera, South Sumatera, Lampung, West Nusa Tenggara, West Kalimantan, South Kalimantan, North Sulawesi, and South Sulawesi), and part of Outer Java Bali II (Riau, Bengkulu, Central Sulawesi, and South East Sulawesi).
The Indonesia Demographic and Health Surveys (1991 and 1994) covered all 27 provinces. Number of households selected were 28 000 and 35 400 respectively.
Intercensal Population Survey
- Common information such as name, sex, and age are collected in complete enumeration, while more detailed information such as relationship to the head of households, sex, age, marital status, socio-economic characteristics of the respondents, education, fertility, mobility, and information on housing condition are collected in sample enumeration.
- Intercensal Population Survey
- Information which are collected in this survey are mostly similar to those collected in sample enumeration of the Population Census with the main concern on fertility and mortality.
National Indonesia Contraceptive Survey and Indonesia Demographic and Health Survey
In these two surveys, information on fertility, mortality, health, and family planning are the main concern. With regard to fertility, these surveys collect information on respondent s background, birth history, fertility preferences, breastfeeding, knowledge and practice of family planning, and respondent s employment. Especially in Indonesia Demographic and Health Survey (1991, 1994), some questions were added, such as maternal care, health and immunization of children under five years old, and in 1994 the survey were expanded to collect information on knowledge of AIDS and maternal mortality, as well as households expenditure, and service availability for family planning and health.
Information collected in the civil registration are vital events such as births, deaths and migration, which are experienced by certain individual or households and are reported to the village authorities.
