Description: An ongoing longitudinal survey in Indonesia designed to provide data for studying individual and household level behaviors and outcomes, as well as information from the communities where households are located and from facilities that serve residents of these communities. The sample is drawn from 13 of the 27 provinces in Indonesia, representing 83% of the population. A major focus of the survey, is on the health, economic and social functioning of the older population. As a result, the baseline survey design included interviews with just under 5,000 randomly selected individuals age 50 or over (plus their spouses) from each household that contained requisite members. In addition to the household interview data, the IFLS conducted a Community-Facility Survey to assess infrastructure quality and availability of services for health and school facilities. The community data can be linked to the household and/or individual-level data. The IFLS is part of a series of Family Life Surveys, which also includes studies in Malaysia, Guatemala, Bangladesh, and Mexico.
