The greater Jakarta transition to adulthood longitudinal survey

The greater Jakarta transition to adulthood longitudinal survey

Funding provided by the Ford Foundation, the Australian Research Council, World Health Organisation, National University of Singapore and the ANU School of Demography

The research team includes Dr Iwu Utomo (ANU), Emeritus Prof Terence Hull (ANU), Prof Peter McDonald (Melbourne University), Dr Ariane Utomo (Melbourne University), and researchers from University of Indonesia and UIN Jakarta.

Using three waves (2010 and 2014 and 2018) of a panel survey of young adults (N=4900; ages 20-40) and three waves of qualitative case studies (N=280; ages 20-40) in Greater Jakarta, this project examines the life courses of young people. The broad aim is to examine how changes in the lives of young Indonesians affect their progression to becoming independent, secure adults and in what ways this progress differs for men and women and by socio-economic strata. Longitudinal analysis is used to examine whether young adults in Jakarta are able to change their circumstances across time or whether early poor outcomes cannot be reversed.

Young Indonesians and their economic and political contributions are vital for Indonesia’s development, yet policy to maximise their participation is lacking. Interviewing 3,006 young adult Indonesians at three points in time, the project examines whether their economic and social outcomes change across time or whether early experience determines longer-term outcomes. What are the factors involved in transition to adulthood among young people in a rapidly developing metropolis of a developing country?
