Iskandar, Nathanael (1970) Some implications of prospective alternative population growth on the labor force and the school going population in Indonesia. UNSPECIFIED thesis, UNSPECIFIED.
Compared to what exists for other countries publications on the demographic characteristics of the population of Indonesia are very scanty, based on out-dated material and not much knows to the outside world. Many studies were carried out based on the data provided by the 1930 Census, which gave however very vague information on the age distribution of the Indonesian population. The last census, held in 1961, which was programmed as a "modern" census and should show many improvement in presenting demographic data of the Indonesian population, stalled in the stage of tabulating and publishing the result, due to political and economic disturbances in the sixties which affected the normal continuation of the intended work. The purpose of this study is to explore as for as possible the implications of the demographic characteristics of the Indonesia population for the labor force and the school-going population of the country in the years ahead, by using the hitherto published material of the last census and demographic survey. This implies that it will not cover all of the exceedingly complex aspects of the consequences of the population characteristic, but will try to explain the possible effects of population dynamics on the future development of certain limited sections of the Indonesia population only. The study will be divided in the following parts. 1. Geography and census history of Indonesia in brief outline. 2. Some notes on the collection of demographic data in Indonesia. 3. A discussion of the age composition of the population in Indonesia. 4. Age at marriage in Indonesia. 5. Estimates of basic demographic parameters of the population in Indonesia as of about 1960. 6. Population projections for Indonesia and its regions, from 1961 to 2001. 7. The Labor force in Indonesia. 8. Estimating the composition of the future power of Indonesia. 9. Estimating the future school-going population in Indonesia. 10. Summary and conclusion remarks.
