Poverty reduction programs are continuously encouraged by various parties, both by the government and nongovernment institutions. In order for these programs to successfully achieve their objectives, area targeting is crucial. To date, reliable regional poverty data with a national scope is only available down to the provincial and district/city levels.

As an effort to provide poverty data at the subdistrict and village levels, SMERU and Statistics Indonesia (BPS) with the support of the World Bank have tried to estimate poverty rates at the subdistrict and village levels in three provinces, namely DKI (Special District Capital of) Jakarta, East Java, and East Kalimantan. Poverty rates were estimated by processing the data available in the Household Consumption Module of the 1999 National Socioeconomic Survey (Susenas), the 1999 Core Module of Susenas, the 2000 Village Potential (Podes) data, and the 2000 Population Census conducted by BPS. Following a successful trial, SMERU with the support of the Ford Foundation had continued the calculation of poverty rates at the subdistrict and village levels in other provinces throughout Indonesia.

The poverty rate calculations have resulted in a poverty map of Indonesia that covers the subdistrict and village levels. The map is presented in the form of an interactive CD and has been distributed to various stakeholders since the beginning of 2005. In order to find out the uses of the poverty mapping CD, SMERU conducted a brief review by interviewing various stakeholders who have received the interactive CD.
