» Indonesia Country Study - Pangkajene and Islands Regency
In 2018 the IDM program undertook an Individual Deprivation Measure (IDM) study across two districts in Indonesia. The study was led by the ANU IDM team. The information presented in this report is based on the responses of 2881 people in Pangkajene and Islands Regency (Pangkep). Surveys were undertaken across the province, including in the remote islands about which little data are available.
The IDM study in Pangkep reveals the ways in which gender and age shape patterns of deprivation. While women were more deprived in some dimensions, multidimensional poverty overall appears to be gendered rather than feminised. That is, both women and men experience poverty, but in different ways, reflecting gendered roles and responsibilities. Poverty is also generationed and the nature and depth of poverty is shaped by both age and gender.
