Primary InvestigatorHetler, C. B.
ADA IDau.edu.anu.ada.ddi.00390
AbstractThis study was undertaken with the purpose of examining questions relating to female-headed households in a rural area of Indonesia experiencing rapid social and economic change. Particular emphasis was placed on explanation of the demographic factors leading to the emergence of female headed households as well as how these households fare in the village environment, relative to households headed by men, and to each other. Information was collected on basic demographic details of the household - numbers of members, their age, sex, marital status, details of parents, and ownership of consumption items and productive land. Subsequent stages of the study collected details on primary and secondary occupations over the previous six months, circular migration history, estimation of household income; on marital history, childbearing, reasons for marital dissolution and remarriage, and support networks; urban housing and the system for sending remittances from circular migrants in the family.
