Indeks Kemajuan Sosial: Tinjauan Umum


Jejak Pemikiran dan Refleksi

Kata kunci: Dimensi IKS, pertanyaan kunci, metode dan hasil perhitungan, hubungan antara IKS dan GDP Per Kapita, Kapasitas Indonesia.

Setiap negara tentu mengupayakan agar warganya maju secara sosial. Upaya ini berarti, tetapi tidak terbatas pada, pemenuhan kebutuhan dasar akan sandang-pangan-papan-pendidikan-kesehatan semua warga, juga anak-cucu-cicit mereka yang masih hidup maupun yang akan hidup di abad-abad mandatang. Inilah upaya ke arah kebajikan yang dikenal secara universal (Arab: ma’ruf). Masalahnya, kapasitas negara untuk mewujudkan semua itu berbeda.

Statistics and religion. This is perhaps an unusual combination for many. The first is dealing with the empirical world, the second with that beyond that world. However, that is my reflection regarding myself. As a statistician, I spent 30 years (1981-2011) serving BPS-Statistics Indonesia. After that my professional services were dedicated to TNP2K office (an office under the vice president office) for a few months and to ILO-ROAP as a senior statistician for half a year. Since 2012 most of my time is dedicated as an independent consultant on statistics-related work, mostly for ILO and on some occasions for some government offices Indonesia. My recent work (2019) was on estimating child labour in Indonesia for ILO Country Office Jakarta. As for personal interest, since young, I've been fascinated with the basic principles of religious thought, especially on its esoteric dimensions, essentiality, and universality. Sufism and perennial philosophy are of my special interest. On this subject, I have posted a number of short articles in my personal blog: https://uzairsuhaimi.blog.
