Indonesia Family Life Survey (IFLS) is an ongoing longitudinal study of individuals, households, communities, and facilities. The household component of the survey covers economic well-being (consumption, income, and assets)\; education, migration, and labor market outcomes; marriage, fertility, and contraceptive use\; health status including biomarkers, use of health care, and health insurance\; relationships among coresident and non-coresident family members\; household decision-making\; and participation in community activities. The community and facility component of the survey provides detailed information from the communities in which IFLS households are located and from the facilities that serve residents of those communities. These data cover aspects of the physical and social environment, infrastructure, employment opportunities, food prices, access to health and educational facilities, and the quality and prices of services available at those facilities. Every adult household member is individually interviewed and movers are tracked to their new location. Interviews were conducted in 1993, 1997, 1998 (on a subsample), and 2000.
