POWERPOINT ON UNCOVERING INDONESIA’S ETHNIC DIVERSITY: THE NATIONAL, PROVINCIAL, AND DISTRICT LEVELS

6 December 2014

Dear Readers,

Indonesia is a very large country, with at least 600 ethnic groups. Utilizing the availability of statistics on ethnicity from 2010 Indonesia Population Census and the “New Classification of Indonesia’s Ethnic Groups”, Evi Nurvidya Arifin, Aris Ananta, and Dwi Retno Wilujeng Wahyu Utami attempt to uncover Indonesia’s ethnic diversity at the national, provincial, and district Levels. This is an ethno-demographic study, analysing ethnicity (in this case ethnic diversity) using statistics.

Uncovering Indonesia’s Ethnic Diversity is the powerpoint presented in an ISEAS public seminar, Singapore, 18 November 2014.

You may quote this powerpoint.

A short description of the seminar can be seen here.

Best regards,

Aris Ananta

Reviews on Indonesia’s Population Ethnicity and Religion in a Changing Political Landscape

Indonesia’s Population: Ethnicity and Religion in a Changing Political Landscape was published in 2003, by the Institute of Southeast Asian Studies, Singapore.

Graeme Hugo, PhD.,  Professor of Geography, Director, The National Centre for Social Applications of Geographic Information Systems, The University of Adelaide, said:

  • “This is a most interesting book to all students of Indonesian society. It presents data on religion and ethnicity collected in the 2000 Indonesian census in an accessible way. The 2000 census was the first since the colonial Volkstelling of 1930 to collect information on ethnicity. Although Indonesia is one of the worlds most ethnically heterogeneous nations  both the Orde Lama of President Sukarno and Orde Baru of President Suharto eschewed recognition of ethnic groups in the interest of developing national unity. Hence the data examined in this book have been long awaited by many Indonesianists. ” His full review is here.

Sharon Siddique, a partner in a Singapore-based regional consulting firm, mentioned that  the book is “New Light on Indonesia’s Ethnic Makeup”. She further  said

“…This book lays out a feast of data for the thoughtful. It is particularly timely as businessmen, scholars and journalists grapple with the implications of Indonesia’s decentralization policies on provincial-level politics and development dynamics. Certainly ethnicity and religion are issues that require careful consideration. This book is an invaluable reference.” Her full review is here.
