Demographic and Health Survey, Special [hh/dhs-sp]
The primary objective of the 2002-2003 Indonesia Young Adult Reproductive Health Survey (IYARHS) is to provide policymakers and program managers with data on knowledge, attitudes, and behavior of young adults about human reproduction, relationships, HIV/AIDS and other sexually transmitted infections. Being the first nationally representative survey of this kind in Indonesia, findings of the survey will also provide program managers with baseline data on these issues.
Specifically, the 2002-2003 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 IYARHS sample covered 1,815 unmarried women and 2,341 unmarried men. The respondents were identified in the 2002-2003 IDHS Household Questionnaire. The IDHS sample was drawn from a frame of census blocks (CBs) developed for the 2002 National Socioeconomic Survey (Susenas), for which a household listing had been conducted. The list includes all private households, which are defined as a person or a group of persons who usually sleep in the same housing unit and have a common arrangement for the preparation and consumption of food.
The IYARHS sample was stratified to yield reliable estimates at the national level. The remaining 26 provinces included in the Susenas are grouped in six strata: two in Sumatera and one each in Java, Nusa Tenggara, Kalimantan, and Sulawesi.
For further details on sample design and implementation, see Appendix A of the final report.
A total of 9,099 households were selected in the sample, of which 8,730 were occupied. Of the households found in the survey, 8,633 were successfully interviewed, yielding a response rate of 99 percent.
In the interviewed households, 2,187 female and 2,929 male respondents were identified for individual interview. Of these, completed interviews were conducted with 1,815 women and 2,341 men, yielding response rates of 83 and 80 percent, respectively.

Data Collection Notes
Training of the survey field staff for the survey was preceded by training of instructors. This training was designed as a workshop format, where the participants took turns in leading the discussions in each aspect of the survey. This format was preferred to the formal lecture type of training because it gives participants more opportunity to learn about the subjects covered in the survey. The training took place in August 2002.
Training for the survey field staff took place in nine locations throughout the country: Medan (North Sumatera), Pandeglang (Banten), Jakarta (DKI Jakarta), Salatiga (Central Java), Malang (East Java), Banjarmasin (South Kalimantan), Ujung Pandang (South Sulawesi), Gorontalo and Jayapura (Papua). Training lasted for ten days and followed the model Demographic and Health Surveys training guidelines.
During training, interviewers were instructed to ensure that interviews were conducted in private, as presence of other persons may bias the respondent’s response.
Data for the 2002-2003 IYARHS were collected by 31 interviewing teams. Each team consisted of one supervisor, one female interviewer, and one male interviewer. The number of sample points selected in a province determined the number of teams in that province. In each province, the Province Statistics Director was responsible for the implementation of the IDHS and IYARHS in that province, while 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 CBS staff visited the field periodically to monitor the progress of the fieldwork. Data collection took place over a six-month period from November 21, 2002 to April 9, 2003.

The survey data was collected using the Individual Questionnaire. The questionnaire was translated into Indonesian from English.
All completed questionnaires, accompanied by the control forms, were returned to the BPS central office in Jakarta for data entry and processing. The data processing consisted of office editing, coding of open-ended questions, data entry, verification, and editing computer-identified errors. Since the IYARHS was implemented in tandem with the 2002-2003 IDHS, census blocks that were selected for both surveys were processed simultaneously. A team of about 40 data entry clerks, 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 B 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.
