2018 was a seminal year for big data analytics in the public sector in Indonesia. The sophistication of demand for our services from public sector stakeholders increased and there was a greater realisation amongst our data partners in the private sector of the potential of their data to inform public policy and promote social good. Pulse
Pulse Lab Jakarta is a joint data innovation facility of the United Nations (Global Pulse) and the Government of Indonesia (via the Ministry of National Development Planning, Bappenas). The Lab employs a mixed-method approach, through which it harnesses alternative data sources and advanced data analytics methods to obtain actionable insights and applies human-centered design to ground-truth insights from its data analysis and research, providing evidence to inform policy makers.
Research and Policy Impact
In consultation with the Government of Indonesia and the United Nations Country Team, PLJ identifies various national development priorities for applied research. The projects are multidisciplinary with an emphasis on creating innovative pathways towards inclusive growth and sustainable development.
Using datasets drawn from mobile communications, remote sensing, and social media, among others, the Lab has generated insights for policy and practice on topics ranging from fuel subsidies to natural disasters. Across our research projects, many of which are delivered alongside partners from the UN and government, the Lab relies on the expertise of its team of data scientists, data engineers, statisticians, policy specialists and ethnographers.
