Third World Planning Review

A zonal analysis of demographic change in Indonesia's megacities

Third World Planning Review (2001), 23, (2), 155–174.

Abstract

Indonesia's largest cities have spread beyond their official boundaries and analysis of their growth dynamics requires the identification of zones surrounding these cities that form part of an extended metropolitan region. Such an analysis is performed for six large cities, using data from the 1990 Population Census and the 1995 inter-censal survey (SUPAS). The methodology used in delineating an inner and outer zone surrounding the official metropolitan area, and the demographic and labour market dynamics in these zones, is discussed. Transformation of the extended metropolitan region is more advanced in the three largest cities—Jakarta, Surabaya and Bandung.
