Description

The study investigates the effects of the Indonesian financial crisis of 1998 on children by analyzing data from The Indonesian Family Life Survey. The study focuses specifically on children born during the financial crisis and how it affected their later life outcomes. The later life outcomes that this study focuses on are threefold: health, cognition, and education. This research examines the societal, rather than the direct economic, impact of the crisis. The study also aims to determine how long these societal effects of the financial crisis lasted and whether consequences of the crisis continued to impact Indonesia nearly ten years later in 2007. The findings are important to consider while measuring the comprehensive impact of a financial crisis and how children can be protected during such times.
