BPS prepares 400,000 police officers to conduct Regsosek data collection
The range of variables collected indicates that the data are widely used.
JAKARTA (ANTARA) – The Indonesian Bureau of Statistics (BPS) has trained 400,000 officials to collect Integrated Socio-Economic Register (Regsosek) data used to implement various programs of central and local governments. BPS Director General Margo Yuwono said Monday.
“In preparation for Regsosek data (collection), BPS has recruited about 400,000 officers and trained them with several professional instructors across Indonesia in community welfare.”
The socio-economic registry is a collection of data on people across Indonesia, including the president and government officials, covering diverse profiles and socio-economic conditions.
The diverse information included in data collection ranged from demographics, employment, housing conditions, health and disability conditions, social protection and economic empowerment to property ownership and geospatial information.
Data collection will be conducted from 15 October to 14 November 2022 through a door-to-door survey using the Paper and Pen Interview (PAPI) method.
In addition, the homes of disadvantaged families will be geotagged and several photographs of the home will be taken.
Through structured training, BPS officers expect all officers to properly collect data and required information according to the determined methods.
“The range of variables collected indicates that the data are widely used. Regsosek data is not[collected]by just one agency, but can also be shared with multiple related agencies.” he said.

The results of the data collection activities are expected to help classify the condition of the Indonesian people from extreme poverty to middle class.

In addition, Regsosek’s data will be integrated with data from the Department of Population and Civil Registration (Dukcapil) of the Ministry of Interior and data from other ministries and agencies.
“We also need to start planning how we will work together to update the data that should be done jointly on a regular basis,” Yuwono added.
