Demographic and Health Survey, Special [hh/dhs-sp]
The primary objective of the 2007 Indonesia Young Adult Reproductive Health Survey (IYARHS) is to provide policymakers and program managers with national-level and provincial-level data on knowledge, attitudes, and practices of young adults regarding human reproduction, relationships, HIV/AIDS, and sexuality.
Specifically, the 2007 IYARHS was designed to:
• Measure the level of knowledge of young adults about reproductive health issues
• Examine the attitudes of young adults on various issues in reproductive health
• Measure the level of tobacco use, alcohol consumption, and drug use
• Measure the level of sexual activity among young adults
• Explore young adults’ awareness of HIV/AIDS and other sexually transmitted infections.

The 2007 IYARHS was conducted in all provinces in Indonesia as part of the 2007 IDHS. The sampling frame developed for the 2007 IDHS and IYARHS is from the 2007 National Labor Force Survey (Sakernas) sample.
A total of 1,694 census blocks (CBs), 676 in urban areas and 1,018 in rural areas, were selected from the list of CBs covered in the 2007 Sakernas. The number of CBs selected in each district was proportional to the number of households in each district. In each selected CB, a complete household listing and mapping was conducted in July 2007 and formed the basis for the second-stage sampling. An average of 25 households were systematically selected from each CB.
The 2007 IYARHS sample aimed to provide reliable estimates of key characteristics for nevermarried women and men age 15-24 in Indonesia as a whole, in urban and rural areas, and in each of the 33 provinces included in the survey.
For further details on sample design and implementation, see Appendix B of the final report.
A total of 42,341 households were selected in the sample, of which 41,131 were occupied. Of the households found in the survey, 40,701 were successfully interviewed, yielding a very high response rate (99 percent).
In the interviewed households, 9,398 female and 12,541 male respondents were identified for an individual interview. Of these, completed interviews were conducted with 8,481 women and 10,830 men, yielding response rates of 90 and 86 percent, respectively. These response rates are higher than those of the 2002-2003 IYARHS (83 and 80 percent, respectively).

Data Collection Notes
A total of 312 persons, 158 women and 154 men, participated in the main survey training for interviewers in June and July, 2007. Training included class presentations, mock interviews in Bahasa Indonesia and the participant’s local language, and classroom tests. The IYARHS field staff was trained at the same time and place as the IDHS field staff, but in separate classes. During training, interviewers were instructed to ensure that interviews were conducted in private, because the presence of other persons can bias respondents’ responses.
Data collection for the 2007 IYARHS was carried out by 104 interviewing teams, each team consisting of 104 team supervisors, 158 female interviewers, and 154 male interviewers. Field operations took place from June 25 to December 31, 2007.
In each province, the Province Statistics Director was responsible for implementing the IDHS and IYARHS in that province, and the Chief of the Population and Social Statistics Division was assigned as the Field Coordinator. During the course of data collection, Province Statistics Office staff and BPS staff visited the field periodically to monitor the progress of the fieldwork.
Government of Indonesia
The 2007 IYARHS used one questionnaire, the Individual Questionnaire. This questionnaire was updated from the 2002-2003 IYARHS. The list of young women and men who were eligible to be interviewed in the IYARHS was obtained from the Household Questionnaire that was administered as part of the 2007 IDHS.
All completed questionnaires and their control forms were returned to the BPS central office in Jakarta for data processing. The process activities consisted of office editing, coding of open-ended questions, data entry, verification, and editing computer-identified errors. A team of data entry operators, data editors, and data entry supervisors processed the data. Census and Survey Processing System (CSPro) software was used to process the survey data.
Estimates of Sampling Error
Detailed description of estimates of sampling errors are presented in Appendix C of the survey report.
Request Dataset Access
The following applies to DHS, MIS, AIS and SPA survey datasets (Surveys, GPS, and HIV).
To request dataset access, you must first be a registered user of the website. You must then create a new research project request. The request must include a project title and a description of the analysis you propose to perform with the data.
The requested data should only be used for the purpose of the research or study. To request the same or different data for another purpose, a new research project request should be submitted. The DHS Program will normally review all data requests within 24 hours (Monday - Friday) and provide notification if access has been granted or additional project information is needed before access can be granted.
DATASET ACCESS APPROVAL PROCESS
Access to DHS, MIS, AIS and SPA survey datasets (Surveys, HIV, and GPS) is requested and granted by country. This means that when approved, full access is granted to all unrestricted survey datasets for that country. Access to HIV and GIS datasets requires an online acknowledgment of the conditions of use.
A dataset request must include contact information, a research project title, and a description of the analysis you propose to perform with the data.
A few datasets are restricted and these are noted. Access to restricted datasets is requested online as with other datasets. An additional consent form is required for some datasets, and the form will be emailed to you upon authorization of your account. For other restricted surveys, permission must be granted by the appropriate implementing organizations, before The DHS Program can grant access. You will be emailed the information for contacting the implementing organizations. A few restricted surveys are authorized directly within The DHS Program, upon receipt of an email request.
When The DHS Program receives authorization from the appropriate organizations, the user will be contacted, and the datasets made available by secure FTP.
GPS/HIV Datasets/Other Biomarkers
Once downloaded, the datasets must not be passed on to other researchers without the written consent of The DHS Program. All reports and publications based on the requested data must be sent to The DHS Program Data Archive in a Portable Document Format (pdf) or a printed hard copy.
Datasets are made available for download by survey. You will be presented with a list of surveys for which you have been granted dataset access. After selecting a survey, a list of all available datasets for that survey will be displayed, including all survey, GPS, and HIV data files. However, only data types for which you have been granted access will be accessible. To download, simply click on the files that you wish to download and a "File Download" prompt will guide you through the remaining steps.
Use of the dataset must be acknowledged using a citation which would include:
- the Identification of the Primary Investigator
- the title of the survey (including country, acronym and year of implementation)
- the survey reference number
- the source and date of download
The user of the data acknowledges that the original collector of the data, the authorized distributor of the data, and the relevant funding agency bear no responsibility for use of the data or for interpretations or inferences based upon such uses.
