Pulse Lab Jakarta collaborated with Bank Indonesia’s Macroprudential Policy Department for an upcoming research dive for development that focuses on household vulnerability. Understanding household financial vulnerability is important for financial system stability, because households are deeply interconnected with financial institutions and non-financial corporations. In its macroprudential policy-making, Bank Indonesia needs to measure household financial vulnerability to mitigate systemic risks, improve intermediary functions, and increase financial system efficiency. Bank Indonesia intends to explore how big data can be used to measure household financial vulnerability alongside its banking indicators and survey results.
