Since 1992, BPS through Susenas collecting core data and the module data every year. Susenas modules is divided into three major groups, that is module socio-cultural and educational, modules housing and health, module household consumption and household expenditure, implementation of each module is every three years.
Data required in the development planning among others is data of education, health, housing, consumption/expenditure of household. Such data is very useful for the Government in the planning of either sector or cross-sector development. In order to provide such data, Central Statistical Agency (BPS) conducts National Socioeconomic Survey (Susenas) almost every year since 1963. Susenas data currently is also the data that is highly required to fulfill the Millennium Development Goals (MDG’s) data.
In 2010, Susenas core was organized with a sample size of 304,368 households. By the number, they expected to obtain the estimation number up to districts or cities level. The implementation field as last year, was done in teams, each team consisting of 1 (one) Coordinator Team and 2 (two) counter (PCS). With the system, they expected that the completion field can be more quickly and the quality of the field enumeration can be better.
Lately BPS is demanded to be able to present data up to the smallest level namely sub-district (kecamatan) level and even to village level. This requirement of data is inseparable from the quality data results. For 2010 Susenas, presentation up to the level of district/city might cause problems if the samples are not met (high RSE) or rare cases that cannot represent, so that the data do not correspond to the actual condition. To anticipate this, there is an activity that have to be conducted by District/City BPS or Provincial BPS namely verification of data quality prior to sending / presenting data to BPS. This activity is critical as BPS data quality depends on data quality generated by District/City BPS as well as Provincial BPS. In order to achieve an accurate and timely data, coordination between units in the regions seems very influential.
