TEMPO.CO, JakartaStatistics Indonesia or BPS recorded that the country’s 2021 Human Development Index (IPM) saw an improvement as it increased by 0.49 percent, higher than the previous year at 0.03 percent.

"But it's still lower than in 2019 which grew by 0.74 percent,” said BPS Head Margo Yuwono in a written statement, Wednesday, May 11, 2022.

The improvement, he assessed, was driven by an increase in the dimension of a decent standard of living which was represented by the adjusted real spending per capita. This variable grew by 1.30 percent in 2021, after experiencing a contraction of 2.53 percent in the previous year.

Additionally, the dimension of long and healthy life or life expectancy represented by the life expectancy at birth (UHH) increased by 0.14 percent, and the dimension of education represented by the expected years of schooling (HLS) and mean years of schooling (RLS) rose by 0.77 and 0.71 percent, respectively.

Jakarta still ranked the highest Human Development Index at the provincial level with 81.11 percent, while the lowest position is Papua with 60.62 percent. Meanwhile, the highest growth was achieved by East Kalimantan with a 0.84-percent hike and the lowest growth was East Nusa Tenggara with a 0.14-percent hike.
