Abstract

 This paper analyzes what factors or variables are associated with variations in poverty at the provincial level in Indonesia. For some factors it is possible to establish with considerable certainty that the factors cause variations in poverty incidence—that is, in the percentage of poor people. For other factors, it is also possible to establish the reverse causality—that poverty incidence may affect the factors.
