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 year 2009, according to its rotation Susenas module is the module on socio-cultural and education. Module of Susenas samples as many as of 291,888 households are the same as Core Susenas so that the estimated numbers are expected to be obtained up to the level of district/city. Field implementation like last year shall be conducted by a team of one (1) Team Coordinator (Teamcoord) and two (2) Enumerators (PCS). By this system, it is expected that the field implementation can be accelerated and the quality result of field census can be improved.
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 2009 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.
