Chinese Indonesians: How Many,Who and Where

Just Published on line

Evi Nuvidya Arifin, M. Sairi Hasbullah, and Agus Pramono. “Chinese Indonesians: How Many and Where”, Asian Ethnicity, 2016, on-line.

This paper provides new statistics to the debate on percentage of Chinese Indonesians, using the latest 100% data set of the 2010 population census. It reveals that the statistics is closer to the low side of the debate, less than 2.0%, rather than the high side of 3.0% and more. Ethnicity is here self-defined by the respondents. With 1.2%, the Chinese Indonesians ranked as the 15th largest group of more than 600 ethnic groups. This paper also produces statistics at the district level, the first ever statistics on Chinese Indonesians. It finds that some provinces and districts have large percentages of Chinese Indonesians, but the respective total population are relatively small to the total Indonesia’s population. Majority of provinces and districts (25 out of 33 provinces and 415 out of 497 districts) have lower percentage of Chinese than the national figure.

Merokoklah, Demi Pertumbuhan Ekonomi

Pembaca yang budiman,

Merokoklah terus. Sakit dan sakitan tidak apa apa. Anda akan membantu pertumbuhan ekonomi. Demi kesejahteraan industri rokok kita diminta terus merokok. Jangan risaukan sakit dan sakit sakitan, anda pahlawan ekonomi.

Lucu ya? Semoga anda tidak mau menjadi pahlawan ekonomi seperti ini. Kasihanilah diri anda sendiri, pasangan anda, keluarga anda, dan masyarakat Indonesia.

Yuk, kita semua mengikuti gaya hidup sehat. Demi kesejahteraan kita semua. Selain itu, ada bonusnya. Kalau kita sehat, ekonomi akan tumbuh dengan berkelanjutan. Kalau kita sakit sakitan,  kita akan mengalami bencana demografi. Produktifitas turun drastis dan ekonomi juga akan berantakan.

Salam hidup sehat.

Aris

Hak Pejalan Kaki

 

13 Juli 2016

Pembaca yang budiman,

Barusan saya membaca berita, pemerintah DKI hendak mengembalikan hak pejalan kaki dan penyandang disabilitas. Selama ini, pejalan kaki tidak mempunyai hak berjalan sama sekali. Bukan hanya di Jakarta, di kota kecil pun demikian. Bahkan di lorong lorong kecil, sepeda motor telah merampas hak orang untuk berjalan kaki.

Semoga rencana pemerintah DKI berjalan dengan lancar. Orang dapat berjalan kaki. Jalan kaki  murah, menyehatkan, tidak mengotori lingkungan dengan hemat energi. Silakan baca berita berikut ini. Click di sini.

 

Mari kita dukung program ini.

Salam,

Aris

New Publication on Ageing

Dear Readers,

We have just published “The Past Three Population Censuses: A Deepening Ageing Population in Indonesia”. In Contemporary Demographic Transformation in China, India and Indonesia. Edited by Christophe Z. Guilmoto and Gavin W. Jones.  New York: Springer, 2016.

About the Chapter

This chapter highlights a deepening ageing population in Indonesia between 1990 and 2010, a period witnessing a political change from an authoritarian regime to a democratizing one. This transition brought a drastic shift in population policy, with a much weaker family planning programmes than during the authoritarian regime. Our assessment from the latest 2010 census suggests that the proportion of population aged 60 year and above was 7.6 percent in 2010, rising from 6.3 per cent in 1990; while the number increased to 18.0 million from 11.3 million. The growth rate of older persons for this period is well above the rate of the general population, 4.7 percent vs 2.9 percent annually.

This chapter also shows a large variation in the age structure of the sub-national population. The structure at the national level remains heavily affected by changes in fertility and mortality only. However, changes at sub-national levels, particularly district level, have also been determined by migration.

The latest census also depicts a significant improvement in educational attainment of older persons, as those without schooling decreased to 31.6 percent from 58.5 percent in 1990. At the same period, participation of the elderly in the labour market rose from 48.1 percent to 51.2 percent in the same period. Furthermore, working as self-employed in the agricultural sector remains to be the main source of financial well-being for the older persons.
